    What shell do you use and why?

    Bash, because I end up using various boxes, and it’s everywhere.

    I have a custom .bashrc in my dotfiles repo which gets placed on every box I use to make it behave the way I want it to, with tweaks to the prompt, colouring the hostname by type of box (dev/staging/production etc), history handling tweaks, some custom functions and aliases etc.

    I’ve toyed with other shells but I’ve not found any killer features that are enough to make me deal with using one shell in some places, and another in others.
