Aliases not recognized in Julia shell mode

Type ; to enter shell mode. It is easy to run commands like ls. But an alias defined e.g., in .bashrc, like ll is not recognized. The latter gives an error Could not determine command.

Any suggestion?

Shell mode doesn’t run your system shell.
it is basically a short hand for julia’s run command.
So it doesn’t know about your aliases if they are defines in a bashrc.
If you want your system shell you could start if from shell mode, via e.g. ; bash

Probably someone could implement a Repl mode that actually does wrap bash etc, with ReplMaker.jl or something, but i have not seen one.

It used to work as you expected but it got changed at some point.

Here I paste Stefan’s words in that respect from the Slack.
