Oh My Zsh theme and Powerline fonts

Oh My Zsh comes bundled with tons of helper tools, plugins and themes that can be used to spice your Zsh experience.

Some themes (agnoster, amuse etc.) bundled in Oh My Zsh rely on Powerline Fonts and require additional installation steps.

Starting with the 3.0 release, Core Shell embeds a selected subset of Powerline fonts:

  1. Source Code Pro for Powerline
  2. Anonymous Pro for Powerline
  3. DejaVu Sans Mono for Powerline
  4. Monofur for Powerline
  5. Noto Mono for Powerline
  6. NovaMono for Powerline
  7. ProFont For Powerline
  8. Space Mono for Powerline
  9. Ubuntu Mono derivative Powerline

With Core Shell, you don't have to install Powerline fonts to your system anymore, Oh My Zsh themes work right out of the box.


agnoster Theme

agnoster ZSH theme is one of the fancy ones:


To change the theme, simply edit ~/.zshrc file and change the ZSH_THEME value to agnoster .

Powerline font

Solarized Color Scheme

agnoster theme works best with Solarized color scheme, which is the default color scheme for Core Shell local profiles since version 3.0.
