Installing ZSH in Catalina
These days I like to do all my terminal/command-line work in zsh, more specifically, with Oh My ZSH! and the bira theme. This previous post described the process I used on each of my Linux servers, and this post is similar, but written specifically for my Catalina (Macintosh OS X v10.15.x), workstations.
This is how I installed and configured zsh, and some other goodies, on my student Mac Mini workstation,
brew update brew install nano zsh chsh -s /bin/zsh mark exit # log back in after this echo $SHELL brew install wget git hugo docker # Docker and Hugo added just for good measure wget https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/raw/master/tools/install.sh -O - | zsh cp ~/.oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrc.zsh-template ~/.zshrc source ~/.zshrc cd ~/.oh-my-zsh/themes/ ls -a nano ~/.zshrc # In the editor add (or replace similar) the following lines but without the leading # # ZSH_THEME='bira' # plugins=(git extract web-search yum git-extras docker) exit # log back in after this
And that’s a wrap… until next time. 😄
