I discovered some cool things about nushell last night, thanks to Brian Wisti’s post. I particularly like being able to pipe the output of hugo list all into a nice table:

I like VisiData’s layout better though. I’m not sure if you can get a similar layout with truncated cells in nu.

The output of du is actually readable in nu, though I still prefer dust:

The errors are great too, they point to the problem (no PBKAC handling yet though):

I recently switched to fish after 10 years of zsh, and I like the way it does autocompletions better. But I’ll be keeping an eye on nushell.
