shell syntax coloring and interactivity

Hi, i want to ask about the syntax coloring and interactivity of the default shell in arch. After i booted the live cd i was logged in as root and i could see amazing syntax coloring and interactivity. The word-completion stuff was amazing, it was offering words, even dividing them in categories. Now, after i installed arch this feature is missing, i have coloring and word-completion but just the normal one that most distros have, nothing fancy about it. I want to know if there are additional packages that i need to install to get this features the same as they are on the arch installation iso.

Thanks and cheers!

Re: shell syntax coloring and interactivity

Check zsh shell, which is used during Arch installation (the default one in Arch is bash).

+1 for zsh... bash on 'roids.  See my github .config for a stash of my current settings including zsh-syntax-highlighting.zsh which is very cool.

Re: shell syntax coloring and interactivity

The installation iso uses zsh, as mentioned.  But (I'm pretty sure) it also uses the grml configuration for which there is an aur package.

(partitally OT: as I was critical of your other post, this in contrast was a clear and well asked question - and as you can see it got quick and productive responses).

Re: shell syntax coloring and interactivity

FYI - grml-zsh-config is in [extra].
