# Happy Nu Year 2020

Happy Nu Year!

2019 was quite the year for Nushell. We landed the initial commit on May 10th, and 1881 commits later we find ourselves at the end of 2019. What all happened this year?

We started off with quite the bang! After quietly working on Nu for a few months, we wrote up a blog post (opens new window) to explain what Nu was. To our surprise, the post got a surprisingly warm reception! Soon, we were recording a podcast with the Changelog to talk about Nu (opens new window).

As the excitement calmed back to everyday levels, we got to the work of turning this minimum-viable product into the real thing. More than 65 people joined us to help fix bugs, test code, write docs, and explore new directions.

# Where are we?

At the end of 2019, where are we?

# What's ahead?

That said, it's "def early days (opens new window)" for Nu, as one recent user put it. We couldn't agree more. It's not quite ready for people to use as their everyday shell. Things we're working on in 2020 to make it possible for everyone to use Nu in their day-to-day work:

  • Stability fixes! We'll be working hard to make Nu rock solid.
  • Aliases, variables, functions, scripts
  • Better integration with the native OS
  • Improved line editing
  • A better motto (lots of people confused about what "Github-era" means)

In short, it's been a lot of fun, a lot of work, and we met some new friends along the way. A very big "thanks!" to all our contributors this year!
