There is a nice theme for the ZSH shell that I’ve found recently. It’s called Powerlevel9k and it uses Powerline patched fonts with additional symbols.
The installation of the theme is quite easy.
$ git clone https://github.com/bhilburn/powerlevel9k.git ~/.zprezto/modules/prompt/external/powerlevel9k
The correct symlink is made like this (otherwise if you use full path symlinks1 and use the same prezto configuration over multiple but different operating systems you might end up with the theme not loaded because that file won’t be found)
$ cd ~/.zprezto/modules/prompt/functions $ ln -s ../modules/prompt/external/powerlevel9k/powerlevel9k.zsh-theme prompt_powerlevel9k_setup
Just copy the
.ttf files into
~/.fonts and update your font-cache with
$ fc-cache -vf
~gets expanded with the full path to your $HOME directory which is something like
/home/useron Linux but
/Users/useron macOS — and that is causing problems when you sync your prezto configuration over multiple OSes. ↩
