Hello Ian,

I'm curious about this. I tried several times to use a shell in emacs
instead of a terminal, and I have always gone back. The main two reasons
I could not keep using them are some incompatibilities with some shells
(I use fish, for instance, which can only run in ansi-term, and even
there it's not perfect), and window management (having a quick access
to a shell window). Do you have tips for using a shell in emacs? In
particular, what shell do you run?

This is very nice, thanks for sharing. I often use org-mode when
developing scripts, but this could be a useful alternative.

Best,

Alan
