A handful of functions, auto-complete helpers, and stuff that makes you shout…

“OH MY ZSHELL!”

Setup

oh-my-zsh should work with any recent release of zsh, the minimum recommended version is 4.3.9.

The automatic installer… (do you trust me?)

wget --no-check-certificate https://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. Create a new zsh config by copying the zsh template we’ve provided.

NOTE: If you already have a ~/.zshrc file, you should back it up. cp ~/.zshrc ~/.zshrc.orig in case you want to go back to your original settings. cp ~/.oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrc.zsh-template ~/.zshrc

3. Set zsh as your default shell:

chsh -s /bin/zsh

4. Start / restart zsh (open a new terminal is easy enough…)

Problems?

You might need to modify your PATH in ~/.zshrc if you’re not able to find some commands after switching to Oh My Zsh.

Usage

  • enable the plugins you want in your ~/.zshrc (take a look at plugins/ to see what’s possible)
    • example: plugins=(git osx ruby)
  • Theme support: Change the ZSH_THEME environment variable in ~/.zshrc.
  • much much more… take a look at lib/ what Oh My Zsh offers…

Useful

the refcard is pretty tasty for tips.

Customization

If you want to override any of the default behavior, just add a new file (ending in .zsh) into the custom/ directory.
If you have many functions which go good together you can put them as a *.plugin.zsh file in the plugin/ directory and then enable this plugin.

Uninstalling

If you want to uninstall it, just run uninstall_oh_my_zsh from the command line and it’ll remove itself and revert you to bash (or your previous zsh config).

Help out!

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!

Send us your theme!

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

Contributors

This project wouldn’t exist without all of our awesome users and contributors.

Thank you so much!
