ssh-agent plugin

This plugin starts automatically ssh-agent to set up and load whichever credentials you want for ssh connections.

To enable it, add ssh-agent to your plugins:

plugins=(... ssh-agent)


To enable agent forwarding support add the following to your zshrc file:

zstyle :omz:plugins:ssh-agent agent-forwarding on

To load multiple identities use the identities style, For example:

zstyle :omz:plugins:ssh-agent identities id_rsa id_rsa2 id_github

To set the maximum lifetime of the identities, use the lifetime style. The lifetime may be specified in seconds or as described in sshd_config(5) (see TIME FORMATS). If left unspecified, the default lifetime is forever.

zstyle :omz:plugins:ssh-agent lifetime 4h


Based on code from Joseph M. Reagle:

Agent-forwarding support based on ideas from Florent Thoumie and Jonas Pfenniger
