A small, usable configuration for ZSH. It enables all the awesomeness of ZSH with a small and tidy config.


git clone --recursive ~/.slimzsh

Add following to

source "$HOME/.slimzsh/slim.zsh"


Slimzsh has:

  • beautiful pure as a shell prompt
  • syntax highlighting
  • tab completion for commands and args (with switching menu and help)
  • all ZSH's awesomeness enabled

I highly recommend using fasd. Slimzsh will automatically detect it if you have it installed.

Then you'll be able to search inline for the best matching file like here:

and so much more!
