Bling for your Terminal: zsh with my fancy Fino theme
If you use the command line on OS X or Linux and you haven’t heard of Zsh, this post will change your life.
Zsh is a fancier, more modern replacement for Bash, the default shell in OS X. Zsh does nice things like smarter tab completion for files and folders, and oh-my-zsh makes it even more awesome with plugins and theming.
Here’s what you do to get Zsh running on OS X with my custom theme (called Fino).
Head over to the oh-my-zsh GitHub page and run the automatic installer.
oh-my-zsh includes an old version of the Fino theme. Replace
~/.oh-my-zsh/themes/fino.zsh-themewith the updated version of Fino.
~/.zshrcand change the line that says
OS X pro tip: add the cdff command to your
~/.zshrc too. This will
cd your Terminal to the front-most Finder window.
