Nushell looks interesting:

There's a lot of cool stuff there, but the way it treats command output as data instead of raw text is what makes it really stand out.

Of course, they had to introduce a new (nu) scripting language with the shell as well. I would have *far* preferred they had instead incorporated an existing and well-supported scripting language. I mean, how hard is it to compile in Python or Javascript, much less Lua?


Hmm… Shells with native support for datatypes seem to be a thing right now…

murex has a built-in test framework, data support for JSON, YALM, TOML, CSV, (and such), and support for events.
