A handful of functions, auto-complete helpers, and stuff that makes you shout…
“OH MY ZSHELL!”
The automatic installer… (do you trust me?)
wget http://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/raw/master/tools/install.sh -O - | sh
The manual way
1. Clone the repository
git clone git://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh.git ~/.oh-my-zsh
2. Symlink the zsh config with:NOTE: If you already have a ~/.zshrc file, you should back it up.
cp ~/.zshrc ~/.zshrc.origin case you want to go back to your original settings.
ln -s ~/.oh-my-zsh/zshrc ~/.zshrc
3. Set zsh as your default shell:
chsh -s /bin/zsh
4. Start / restart zsh (open a new terminal is easy enough..)
You might need to modify your PATH in ~/.zshrc if you’re not able to find some commands after switching to oh-my-zsh.
TODO: Update this..
- Rake autocomplete:
rake (tab). Will generate a cache of all your rake tasks and then let you auto-complete and/or select the task to run.
- ssh autocomplete:
- Git branch, it’ll tell you which branch you’re in when you’re in a git repository directory.
- Theme support: Change the
ZSH_THEMEenvironment variable in
- much much more..
- Rick Olsen (technoweenie) might remember some of the configuration, which I took from a pastie a few years ago.
- Whoever created the rake autocomplete stuff, which was posted all over the internet a few years ago.
I’m far from being a zsh-expert and suspect there are many ways to improve. If you have ideas on how to make the configuration easier to maintain (and faster), don’t hesitate to fork and send pull requests!

I’m hoping to collect a bunch of themes for our command prompts. You can see existing ones in the
