Installation

First install ZUI plugin (it's an UI library).

The plugin is "standalone", which means that only sourcing it is needed. So to install, unpack zbrowse somewhere and add

source {where-zbrowse-is}/zbrowse.plugin.zsh

to zshrc.

If using a plugin manager, then Zplugin is recommended, but you can use any other too, and also install with Oh My Zsh (by copying directory to ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/plugins).

Zplugin

Add zplugin load zdharma/zbrowse to your .zshrc file. Zplugin will handle cloning the plugin for you automatically the next time you start zsh. To update issue zplugin update zdharma/zbrowse (update-all can also be used).

Antigen

Add antigen bundle zdharma/zbrowse to your .zshrc file. Antigen will handle cloning the plugin for you automatically the next time you start zsh.

Oh-My-Zsh

  1. cd ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/plugins
  2. git clone git@github.com:zdharma/zbrowse.git
  3. Add zbrowse to your plugin list

Zgen

Add zgen load zdharma/zbrowse to your .zshrc file in the same place you're doing your other zgen load calls in.
