Fish Shell

Since RVM is a large collection of bash scripts and fish is not bash-compatible, users of fish need a wrapper around RVM to make it work properly with that shell. Since RVM just manipulates environment variables, we just need a way to preserve those changes.

Please note that better fish support (although not native) is expected in the future.

Install

Install RVM as you would for use with bash. When running the rvm-install command, feel free to ignore the advice under the "You must now finish the install manually" section.

Setup

Download the fish functions from GitHub.

curl -L --create-dirs -o ~/.config/fish/functions/rvm.fish https://raw.github.com/lunks/fish-nuggets/master/functions/rvm.fish

And activate the default Ruby manually in your config.fish file:

echo "rvm default" >> ~/.config/fish/config.fish

Usage

Use RVM just as you would in bash or zsh as per the instructions on the website, converting any bashisms to fish as needed.
