Oh My Zsh is an open source, community-driven framework for managing your zsh configuration. That sounds boring. Let's try this again.
Oh My Zsh is a way of life! Once installed, your terminal prompt will become the talk of the town or your money back! Each time you interface with your command prompt, you'll be able take advantage of the hundreds of bundled plugins and pretty themes. Strangers will come up to you in cafés and ask you, "that is amazing. are you some sort of genius?" Finally, you'll begin to get the sort of attention that you always felt that you deserved. ...or maybe you'll just use the time that you saved to start flossing more often.
Disclaimer: Oh My Zsh works best on Mac OS X and Linux.
- Unix-based operating system (Mac OS X or Linux)
- Zsh should be installed (v4.3.9 or more recent). If not a simple
brew install zshshould do the job
wgetshould be installed
gitshould be installed
1. Clone the repository:
git clone https://github.com/ladislas/oh-my-zsh ~/.oh-my-zsh
2. Optionally, backup your existing
cp ~/.zshrc ~/.zshrc.orig
3. Symlink the configuration file
I've customized a great
.zshrc file that should get you up and running!
ln -s ~/.oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrcDot.zsh-template ~/.zshrc
You can also create a new zsh config file by copying the template that we included for you.
cp ~/.oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrc.zsh-template ~/.zshrc
4. Change your default shell
chsh -s /bin/zsh or
chsh -s $(which zsh) if using
brew. Note that you should edit
/etc/shells on OS X Yosemite.
