Dear oh-my-zsh team. I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying using oh-my-zsh, it's fantastic.

I would be delighted if you would consider the following theme for inclusion in the repository.

Daring Fireball theme

It is based on John Gruber's site Daring Fireball and requires some a some terminal settings which I have provided a link and instructions to in the wiki.




Sometimes a global .gitignore can be helpful:

So true. New machine and totally forgot to add a global .gitignore
I was really surprised when I saw that cheeky .DS_store file.

All set up now thanks.

That's cool. I've been thinking about doing a project to make dotfiles ultraportable with secrets templatized out.


Thanks for sending this across. However, per the README file ( ) at this point in time... I am not going to be accepting any new themes for a while. My aim is to work out a new solution for how to manage user theme contributions better in the future, but am thinking that 100+ is already too many for folks to browse/select from. :-)

Be sure to follow @ohmyzsh on twitter ( ) to stay tuned for when we might have a good location for such themes.

ProTip: If you have a custom theme and want to use it... you might check out this (poorly documented) feature from pull-request #1111.
