I love CUI, commands, the world of characters. And I got a new pc of OS X because of an internship of Cyber Agent I joined this summer. So I set up comfortable environment for nice CUI life by iTerm and zsh.
First, I installed iTerm from the URL below.
That is nicer than default terminal of OS X, I guess. That is very customizable.
iTerm has a lot of color themes. You can access the repository fro the URL below.
iTerm2-Color-Shemes is very cool and easy tool. The README.md is really easy to understand and follow the introduction. I could install that easily.
I chose Espresso. That theme is not bright so I prefer.
zsh is a kind of shell. The default shell of OS X is bash. bash is also great (the author looks so strong anyway..lol) but zsh is nice for geeks who want to customize a shell easily and well.
First installed Homebrew to install other programs.
And installed zsh by brew command.
You can change the default shell if you want.
And I really want to reccomend oh-my-zsh. That is really easy tool to set many plugins and cool theme for zsh.
You can clone the repository and set up by the commands below.
Set the theme by editing ~/.zshrc file. I chose a theme, avit.
All themes are in ~/.oh-my-zsh/themes/ and also check here: https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/wiki/Themes
That is all! CUI is really useful and fun. Let’s enjoy it.
