Bash is cool, but have you tried Zsh? ohmyzsh, bruh!


Install Zsh

This is more of a “Quality of Life” issue, but here’s how I setup Zsh.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y zsh

I also install additional fonts for use with Zsh, you can use the apt command to install the powerline and fonts-powerline package, which provides a collection of powerline-themed fonts:

sudo apt-get install -y powerline fonts-powerline

Once the package is installed, you should be able to select the powerline fonts from your terminal emulator’s font options.

Alternatively, you can download and install fonts manually by placing the font files in the ~/.local/share/fonts directory (for the current user only) or the /usr/local/share/fonts directory (for all users).

Install ohmyzsh

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL"

Then it will prompt to set the default shell. Select yes — should you feel so inclined.
