Does it work on MacOS Sierra?

It is the first time I try powerline and I do not know if I didn't install it properly or if it is a macOS Sierra issue:

We need to set the terminal font to a powerline font.

Got same issue here. Just change the font to Droid Sans Mono Awesome and it's working fine.

SarkarSubjhajit's answer worked fine for me! Everyother font from Powerline didn't work.

If this problem appears you should check the option "Use a different font for non-ASCII text", and select a font that works - i.e. any of the Meslo (not Menlo) family.

@jbanulso Somehow doesn't work for me. It seems like my terminal is cursed...

@Ghosty141 hmm interesting... Have you checked the last part in the README? It says the following:

In some distributions, Terminess Powerline is ignored by default and must be explicitly allowed. A fontconfig file is provided which enables it. Copy this file from the fontconfig directory to your home folder under ~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d (create it if it doesn't exist) and re-run fc-cache -vf.

Maybe that can end the curse :)

@jbanulso I forgot the most important thing when things don't work: Did you try turning it off and on again? It was fixed after a restart, kinda weird since on my hackintosh it worked right away. Anyway, thanks for the help!

After upgrading to high sierra the icons stopped working for me, so the solution I found was to follow the steps provided in here: https://github.com/gabrielelana/awesome-terminal-fonts/wiki/OS-X

I hope it helps if someone else is still having this issue.

If you have a pre-determined window arrangement, you will need to re-arrange it again.

TL;DR: create a new arrangement.

Do the powerline symbols include in each "font for powerline"? Or I have to download PowerlineSymbols independently?

Couldn't install them, I won't disable any security on my system to install a font. Isn't there any other solution appart from not using the theme on zsh?

FWIW, Latest version of iTerm2 (Build 3.3.0beta12) has a setting "Use built-in Powerline Glyphs" (I'm on macOS mojave) - Worked for me.

@mandarvaze - On 3.3.2 this checkbox is there as well and it worked perfectly. Thank you!

The iTerm2 now supports Powerline glyphs natively. No need to install any fonts.
iTerm2 > Preferences > Profiles > Text > Use built-in Powerline glyphs

Yep, spent a hour messing around and after trawling a few site I find a reboot is required. I went into a cold sweat as I thought we were back in MS Windows land.
