This simple friction log was done over about a week of use of Fig.io. For reference, the terminal time spent during this week was several hours but didn't cover a lot of in-depth terminal commands, mainly things like running Node, git commit commands, etc.
This is a first-time experience and I hope to revisit it soon in more depth.
The intro / install screen was great. How they let you pick a theme, let you know what’s going on, etc. is perfect.
Not sure why it asks to sign in with work email when you don’t have to use that (I tried a personal email)
When I setup with ZSH, I assumed it took over my .zshrc but I wasn't sure. It didn't really spell out what it did. i.e. Did it back up my dot files? Later, I opened my .zshrc file and saw what it was doing and thought it was pretty cool how that was handled. A simple message letting me know the cool things they just did would turn this from a friction to a delight.
I reached out for some support and they got back with me right away.
After a week or so, the up arrow and other common shortcuts stopped working. I got tired of trying to figure it out so I deleted it and all my history and other shortcuts started working again.
