Get a list of all unix shells for which user configuration files exist. Supports bash, zsh, and fish.

Installation

npm install shells --save

Usage

const shells = require('shells')()

This module looks for the following files in your home directory:

~/.bashrc
~/.bash_profile
~/.config/fish/config.fish
~/.zshrc

It returns an array of the extant files, sorted by most recently modified:

[{
  file: '/Users/zeke/.zshrc',
  type: 'zsh'
}, {
  file: '/Users/zeke/.bashrc',
  type: 'bash'
}]

The first one on the list is probably the user's preferred shell, but there's no guarantee. If you just want to know the user's current shell, use process.env.SHELL, but be aware this isn't always accurate.

Tests

npm install
npm test
