Obviously you need the mighty Z-Shell installed, but that is why you are reading this, is it not?
The new version also depends on the Oh My ZSH! collection. But you do not need to worry about that, as it is included in the installation process.
Download this repository by pulling it like this (I prefer the
.zshdirectory, but you can use whatever you want):
cd ~ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:hook-dot-files/zsh.git .zsh
Download the Oh My ZSH! collection, which resides in submodule of this repository (substitute
.zshwith your directory):
cd ~/.zsh/oh-my-zsh git submodule init git submodule update
Make the new
zshrcfile the default (if needed before that migrate the content of the existing one into
ln -s ~/.zsh/zshrc ~/.zshrc
Log into a fresh Z-Shell and be amazed!
My install works just like any other Oh My ZSH! repository with just a few differences:
- the custom directory resides in
.zsh/oh-my-zsh/custom, so I can track it individually;
zlogoutscripts that run when you log into or out of your Z-Shell;
- a custom theme called
- (soon) a few custom plugins (e.g. for ConTeXt).
Other than that, just refer to Oh My ZSH!’s documentation.
I will try to upstream all of my customisations, so this list will hopefully get smaller instead of bigger in the future.
