Honukai theme and colors for Oh My ZSH and iTerm by @oskar

See how it looks with blur and transparency (video).



The theme is based on the wonderfully made ys theme from the official oh-my-zsh repo.

  1. Drop honukai.zsh-theme into the ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/themes/ directory (simply create the themes directory if it does not exist)
  2. Change the theme variable name to ZSH_THEME="honukai" in ~/.zshrc
  3. Reload ZSH with source ~/.zshrc


  1. Open Preferences pane on the Profiles tab in iTerm
  2. Switch to the Colors tab and import the honukai.itermcolors (drop-down in the lower right corner)

NOTE: You'll need at least iTerm2.9-nightly (aka 3.0)
