Z shell

by Marius at 20-03-2017

There was a time when I used Bash as default system shell. I think most of linux users use Bash as it is the default shell preinstalled with most of the distributions. That is a very good shell, I had been using it for years till two years ago when I discovered the Z shell. It really impressed me with its interactivity, tons of plugins and extension shipped with ,,oh my zsh'', which is a community-driven framework for managing zsh configuration. In fact it provides a way to integrate shell with many external tools such as git, RubyOnRails, Python etc. What is more it provides more than 100 themes! Now you can make your shell as you like. In fact I'm using ,,random'' theme, so everytime I start a new shell I got something new, which I really like.

If you would like to install ZSH at your system check your repos, it probably is already there. If it is not, then got to http://zsh.sourceforge.net/. More information about ,,oh my zsh'' you will find at https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh, as it says

Oh My Zsh will not make you a 10x developer...but you might feel like one.
