This gist describes very well how you can install a copy of iTerm2 + oh my zsh + solarized + Meslo powerline font (OSX).
This is just a copy of what is on Kevin Smet’s gist so all credit goes to him.
How to install
– Download and install iTerm2 (it has better color fidelity than the built in Terminal).
Get the iTerm color settings
– Dark theme
– Light theme
– More themes @ iterm2colorschemes
Just save it somewhere and open the file(s). The color settings will be imported into iTerm2. Apply them in iTerm through iTerm -> preferences -> profiles -> colors -> load presets. You can create a different profile, other than Default if you wish to do so.
Oh my zsh
More info here: https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh
curl -L https://raw.github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh | sh
`~/.zshrc` and set
Install a patched font
– Meslo. Click “view raw” to download the font.
– Others @ powerline fonts
Open the downloaded font and press “Install Font”.
Set this font in iTerm2 (14px is my personal preference) (iTerm -> preferences -> profiles -> text).
– Regular Font -> “Change Font”
– Non-ASCII Font -> “Change Font”
Restart iTerm for all changes to take effect.
Shorter prompt style
By default, your prompt will now show [email protected] in the prompt. This will make your prompt rather bloated. Optionally set
`~/.zshrc` to your regular username (these must match) to hide the [email protected] info when you’re logged in as yourself on your local machine.
