atuin import

Atuin can import your history from your "old" history file

atuin import auto will attempt to figure out your shell (via \$SHELL) and run the correct importer

Unfortunately these older files do not store as much information as Atuin does, so not all features are available with imported data.


atuin import zsh

If you've set HISTFILE, this should be picked up! If not, try

HISTFILE=/path/to/history/file atuin import zsh

This supports both the simple and extended format


atuin import bash
