Installation

Installing Zim is easy. If you have a different shell framework installed (like oh-my-zsh or prezto), uninstall those first to prevent conflicts. It can be installed manually by following the instructions below:

  1. In a Zsh shell, clone the repository:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/Eriner/zim.git ${ZDOTDIR:-${HOME}}/.zim
  1. Paste this into your terminal to prepend the initialization templates to your configs:
setopt EXTENDED_GLOB
for template_file ( ${ZDOTDIR:-${HOME}}/.zim/templates/* ); do
  user_file="${ZDOTDIR:-${HOME}}/.${template_file:t}"
  touch ${user_file}
  ( print -rn "$(<${template_file})$(<${user_file})" >! ${user_file} ) 2>/dev/null
done
  1. Set Zsh as the default shell:
chsh -s =zsh
  1. Open a new terminal and finish optimization (this is only needed once, hereafter it will happen upon desktop/tty login):
source ${ZDOTDIR:-${HOME}}/.zlogin
  1. You're done! Enjoy your Zsh IMproved! Take some time to read about the available modules and tweak your .zshrc file.
