Quick Tip: Stop ZSH Shell Auto-Correct from Driving You Crazy
I switched my Unix shell to zsh a few months ago and overall I love it. But sometimes the autocorrect can be a little *too* helpful.
After the latest upgrade I started getting this every time I typed 'git status':
zsh: correct 'status' to 'stats' [nyae]?
Um no. No thanks I said. Not today. WILL YOU QUIT ASKING ME THAT!?!?
So I finally Bing'd* it and got the suggestion to turn off auto correct. That seemed a little drastic. Here's a less blunt solution: Open .oh-my-zsh/lib/correction.zsh and add this line to it:
alias git status='nocorrect git status'
You may now commune with git in peace.
*Nah, I used Google. :) Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.
