Prezto — Instantly Awesome Zsh

Prezto is the configuration framework for Zsh; it enriches the command line interface environment with sane defaults, aliases, functions, auto completion, and prompt themes.

Installation

Prezto will work with any recent release of Zsh, but the minimum required version is 4.3.11.

  1. Launch Zsh:

    zsh
    
  2. Clone the repository:

    git clone --recursive https://github.com/sorin-ionescu/prezto.git "${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.zprezto"
    
  3. Create a new Zsh configuration by copying the Zsh configuration files provided:

    setopt EXTENDED_GLOB
    for rcfile in "${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}"/.zprezto/runcoms/^README.md(.N); do
      ln -s "$rcfile" "${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.${rcfile:t}"
    done
    

    Note: If you already have any of the given configuration files, ln in the above operation will cause an error. In simple cases, you can load Prezto by adding the line source "${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.zprezto/init.zsh" to the bottom of your ${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.zshrc and keep the rest of your Zsh configuration intact. For more complicated setups, we recommend that you back up your original configs and replace them with the provided Prezto runcoms.

  4. Set Zsh as your default shell:

    chsh -s /bin/zsh
    
  5. Open a new Zsh terminal window or tab.

Troubleshooting

If you are not able to find certain commands after switching to Prezto, modify the PATH variable in ${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.zprofile then open a new Zsh terminal window or tab.

Updating

Run zprezto-update to automatically check if there is an update to Prezto. If there are no file conflicts, Prezto and its submodules will be automatically updated. If there are conflicts you will be instructed to go into the $ZPREZTODIR directory and resolve them yourself.

To pull the latest changes and update submodules manually:

cd $ZPREZTODIR
git pull
git submodule update --init --recursive

Usage

Prezto has many features disabled by default. Read the source code and the accompanying README files to learn about what is available.

Modules

  1. Browse /modules to see what is available.
  2. Load the modules you need in ${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.zpreztorc then open a new Zsh terminal window or tab.

Themes

  1. For a list of themes, type prompt -l.

  2. To preview a theme, type prompt -p name.

  3. Load the theme you like in ${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.zpreztorc then open a new Zsh terminal window or tab.

    sorin theme Note that the git module may be required for special symbols to appear, such as those on the right of the above image. Add 'git' to the pmodule list (under zstyle ':prezto:load' pmodule \ in your ${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.zpreztorc) to enable this module.

External Modules

  1. By default modules will be loaded from /modules and /contrib.

  2. Additional module directories can be added to the :prezto:load:pmodule-dirs setting in ${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.zpreztorc.

    Note that module names need to be unique or they will cause an error when loading.

    zstyle ':prezto:load' pmodule-dirs $HOME/.zprezto-contrib
