Rafiki-zsh

Rafiki-zsh is a oh-my-zsh theme that adds emojis to your zsh terminal. Rafiki will display a good emoji such as πŸ˜„ on your prompt whenever commands run smoothly and bad emojis such as 😑 whenever things go wrong.

Prerequisites

Setup

  1. Download rafiki zsh as a oh-my-zsh custom theme:
 $ mkdir -p $ZSH_CUSTOM/themes && curl -o $ZSH_CUSTOM/themes/rafiki.zsh-theme https://raw.githubusercontent.com/akabiru/rafiki-zsh/develop/rafiki.zsh-theme
  1. Set ZSH_THEME to rafiki in your ~/.zshrc.
$ vim ~/.zshrc
 # ZSH_THEME='rafiki'
  1. Reload your zsh configuration and Voila! Rafiki is watching over you. 😎
$ source ~/.zshrc

Usage

Rafiki generates random emojis every time you start up your terminal. It also tells you who your pals are for the session.

To generate a new set just run newrafiki

$ newrafiki

You can also run rafiki to remind yourself your emoji set.

$ rafiki

Customization

Rafiki is pretty customizable.

If you prefer to have a constant set of emojis just set your goodemoji and bad emoji in .zshrc as follows.

For good emojis, set $MY_GOOD_RAFIKI to one of the following: fire muscle pointright facepunch smile sunglasses and your bad emoji to one of the following: rollingeyes pouting confused flushed middlefinger worried

$MY_GOOD_RAFIKI='fire'
$MY_BAD_RAFIKI='rollingeyes'

Then reload your zsh configuration.

$ source ~/.zshrc

You can also add your own emojis to the supported set. Just add the emoji to one of the arrays; good or bad with the emoji name as the key emoji as the value. For example:

good[100] = πŸ’―

Inspiration

If you've seen the American animated epic musical film: Lion King the name Rafiki will resonate well with you.
