When you get a new Macbook Pro with M1 chip you get an old version of Bash.
Bash isn’t old. It’s still being maintained. It has millions of Linux and Windows users. Here’s how to put the newest version of Bash back inside your MacOS box.
Install Bash and the bare minimum of things things you would expect it to have:
brew install bash bash-completion lesspipe
Verify that it’s installed:
which -a bash
Add it to your
sudo nano /etc/shells
Change your default shell to the new Bash:
chsh -s /opt/homebrew/bin/bash
.bashrc that resembles what you would see in Ubuntu 22.04’s
From here, create your
.bash_aliases and make all the other adjustments you’ve been doing since 1989… Bash not dead!
