- Download the latest zsh package: https://packages.msys2.org/package/zsh?repo=msys&variant=x86_64
The package now is compacted using
zstd, so now we need some "special" extractor.
So, in my case, I've downloaded this file
https://repo.msys2.org/msys/x86_64/zsh-5.8-5-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst And extracted it using the Peazip.
- Extract the content to your git bash installation dir:
- Test it and config zsh:
Open git bash and type:
So, this step is important, it seems
zsh will ask a few configurations, like the tab completion, history, etc.
Please read the options and set that according to your use.
- Installing oh-my-zsh, execute the following cmd on git bash
sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh)"
- Configuring zsh as default shell
~/.bashrc file. (create it if it doesn't exist)
Add the following lines at the end of the file
# Launch Zsh if [ -t 1 ]; then exec zsh fi
Close and open again the git bash.
- Installing the Honukay theme
curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/oskarkrawczyk/honukai-iterm/master/honukai.zsh-theme -o ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/themes/honukai.zsh-theme
- Set it
sed -i 's/ZSH_THEME="robbyrussell"/ZSH_THEME="honukai"/g' ~/.zshrc
Hi! If you don't want to install Peazip just for this, you can get the extracted files from my repo which I created just for this: https://github.com/siposm/zsh-shell-extracted
