Oh My Zsh

Oh My Zsh is an open source, community-driven framework for managing your zsh configuration.

Sounds boring. Let's try again.

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

Once installed, your terminal shell will become the talk of the town or your money back! With each keystroke in your command prompt, you'll take advantage of the hundreds of powerful plugins and beautiful themes. Strangers will come up to you in cafés and ask you, "that is amazing! are you some sort of genius?"

Finally, you'll begin to get the sort of attention that you have always felt you deserved. ...or maybe you'll use the time that you're saving to start flossing more often. 😬

To learn more, visit and follow @ohmyzsh on Twitter.

Getting Started


Disclaimer: This custom Oh My Zsh only works on Ubuntu/Debian.

  • Unix-like operating system (Linux)
  • Zsh is installed along with Oh My Zsh (v4.3.9 or more recent).
  • curl or wget should be installed
  • git should be installed

Basic Installation

Oh My Zsh is installed by running one of the following commands in your terminal. You can install this via the command-line with either curl or wget.

via curl

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL"

via wget

sh -c "$(wget -O -)"

Customs adds

If zsh is not intalled, the script handle it.

Default theme is 'agnoster', with powerline fonts installation at the beginning of the script.

create a file along with folder path

fp filepath/myfile

alias to 'clear'


launch nano to edit zsh config

To do just after:

refresh zsh configuration



alias d="docker"
alias dc="docker-compose"
alias dm="docker-machine"

# Set Docker-Machine node Env
# Example: dme node1
dme() {
  eval $(docker-machine env $1)

# Quit Docker-Machine node Env
alias dmq="eval $(docker-machine env -u)"

alias cleanContainers="docker container rm \$(docker container ls -a -q) "
alias cleanVolumes="docker volume rm \$(docker volume ls -q) "

    nodes=($(docker-machine ls -q))

    for node in "${nodes[@]}"
        volumes=($(docker-machine ssh ${node} "docker volume ls -q"))
        docker-machine ssh ${node} "docker volume rm ${volumes[@]}"

swarmCleanContainers() {
    nodes=($(docker-machine ls -q))
    for node in "${nodes[@]}"
        containers=($(docker-machine ssh ${node} "docker container ls -aq"))
        docker-machine ssh ${node} "docker container rm ${containers[@]}"

Using Oh My Zsh


Oh My Zsh comes with a shitload of plugins to take advantage of. You can take a look in the plugins directory and/or the wiki to see what's currently available.

Enabling Plugins

Once you spot a plugin (or several) that you'd like to use with Oh My Zsh, you'll need to enable them in the .zshrc file. You'll find the zshrc file in your $HOME directory. Open it with your favorite text editor and you'll see a spot to list all the plugins you want to load.

vi ~/.zshrc

For example, this might begin to look like this:


Using Plugins

Most plugins (should! we're working on this) include a README, which documents how to use them.


We'll admit it. Early in the Oh My Zsh world, we may have gotten a bit too theme happy. We have over one hundred themes now bundled. Most of them have screenshots on the wiki. Check them out!

Selecting a Theme

Robby's theme is the default one. It's not the fanciest one. It's not the simplest one. It's just the right one (for him).

Once you find a theme that you'd like to use, you will need to edit the ~/.zshrc file. You'll see an environment variable (all caps) in there that looks like:


To use a different theme, simply change the value to match the name of your desired theme. For example:

ZSH_THEME="agnoster" # (this is one of the fancy ones)
# see

Note: many themes require installing the Powerline Fonts in order to render properly.

Open up a new terminal window and your prompt should look something like this:

Agnoster theme

In case you did not find a suitable theme for your needs, please have a look at the wiki for more of them.

If you're feeling feisty, you can let the computer select one randomly for you each time you open a new terminal window.

ZSH_THEME="random" # (...please let it be pie... please be some pie..)

And if you want to pick random theme from a list of your favorite themes:


Installation Problems

If you have any hiccups installing, here are a few common fixes.

  • You might need to modify your PATH in ~/.zshrc if you're not able to find some commands after switching to oh-my-zsh.
  • If you installed manually or changed the install location, check the ZSH environment variable in ~/.zshrc.

Custom Plugins and Themes

If you want to override any of the default behaviors, just add a new file (ending in .zsh) in the custom/ directory.

If you have many functions that go well together, you can put them as a XYZ.plugin.zsh file in the custom/plugins/ directory and then enable this plugin.

If you would like to override the functionality of a plugin distributed with Oh My Zsh, create a plugin of the same name in the custom/plugins/ directory and it will be loaded instead of the one in plugins/.

Getting Updates

By default, you will be prompted to check for upgrades every few weeks. If you would like oh-my-zsh to automatically upgrade itself without prompting you, set the following in your ~/.zshrc:


To disable automatic upgrades, set the following in your ~/.zshrc:


Manual Updates

If you'd like to upgrade at any point in time (maybe someone just released a new plugin and you don't want to wait a week?) you just need to run:


Magic! 🎉

Uninstalling Oh My Zsh

Oh My Zsh isn't for everyone. We'll miss you, but we want to make this an easy breakup.

If you want to uninstall oh-my-zsh, just run uninstall_oh_my_zsh from the command-line. It will remove itself and revert your previous bash or zsh configuration.


I'm far from being a Zsh expert and suspect there are many ways to improve if you have ideas on how to make the configuration easier to maintain (and faster), don't hesitate to fork and send pull requests!

We also need people to test out pull-requests. So take a look through the open issues and help where you can.

Do NOT send us themes

We have (more than) enough themes for the time being. Please add your theme to the external themes wiki page.


Oh My Zsh has a vibrant community of happy users and delightful contributors. Without all the time and help from our contributors, it wouldn't be so awesome.

Thank you so much!
