Let's Start the Installation...!

Install Oh My Zsh on Termux

I personally Suggest you Buy a Termux Styling App From a Google Play store to Style your Termux Terminal Colors and Font.

  • Update the Packages
pkg up
  • Install the Required packages (curl,git,zsh and nano)
pkg install curl
pkg install git
pkg install zsh
pkg install nano
  • Clone the Oh My Zsh Github Respo
git clone ~/.oh-my-zsh
  • Create a New ZSH configuration file
cp ~/.oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrc.zsh-template ~/.zshrc
nano .zshrc
  • Find the line ZSH_THEME="robbyrussell" replace robbyrussell with agnoster theme in .zshrc File (CTRL + X & Enter to Save)
  • use Z-shell as Default Shell
chsh -s zsh
  • Verify the Default Shell
$ echo $SHELL
# output
$ /data/data/com.termux/files/use/bin/zsh
cd .oh-my-zsh

Want Syntax Highlighting? install ZSH Syntax Highlighting for Oh My Zsh

  • install ZSH Syntax Highlighting
git clone "$HOME/.zsh-syntax-highlighting" --depth 1
  • Add syntax-highlighting in .zshrc Configuration
echo "source $HOME/.zsh-syntax-highlighting/zsh-syntax-highlighting.zsh" >> "$HOME/.zshrc"

Revert Back to Default Shell

chsh -s bash
  • Use both bash & ZSH
# zsh to bash
exec bash
# bash to zsh
exec zsh

From the Editor's Desk

.oh-my-zsh & .zsh-syntax-highlighting Git Folders are Cloned in Home Directory
