Oh My Zsh

OMZ is a configuration framework for Zsh that enriches the command line interface environment with sane defaults, aliases, functions, auto completion, and prompt themes.

Installation

Oh My Zsh will work with any recent release of Zsh, but the minimum recommended version is 4.3.10.

  1. Clone the repository:

    git clone https://github.com/sorin-ionescu/oh-my-zsh.git ~/.oh-my-zsh

  2. Initialize the submodules:

    cd ~/.oh-my-zsh && git submodule update --init --recursive

  3. Create a new Zsh configuration by copying the Zsh template provided:

    cp ~/.oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrc ~/.zshrc

  4. Set Zsh as your default shell:

    chsh -s /bin/zsh

  5. Open a new Zsh terminal window or tab.

Mac OS X

If you have administrator privileges, you must fix an Apple misconfiguration in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion by renaming /etc/zshenv to /etc/zprofile, or Zsh will have the wrong PATH when executed non-interactively by scripts.

Troubleshooting

If you are not able to find certain commands after switching to Oh My Zsh, modify the PATH variable in environment.zsh then open a new Zsh terminal window or tab.

Usage

Oh My Zsh has many features disabled by default. Read the source code and accompanying README files to learn of what is available.

Modules

  1. Browse modules/ to see what is available.
  2. Load the modules you need in ~/.zshrc then open a new Zsh terminal window or tab.

Themes

  1. For a list of themes, type prompt -l.
  2. To preview a theme, type prompt -p name.
  3. Load the theme you like in ~/.zshrc then open a new Zsh terminal window or tab. sorin theme

The project is managed via Git. It is highly recommend that you commit your changes and push them to GitHub to not lose them. If you do not know how to use Git, follow this tutorial and bookmark this reference.

Completions

Submit program completions to the zsh-completions project. The Oh My Zsh completions directory will be synched against it.
