Setup ZSH with oh-my-zsh on SDF

written November 2017

Regular members don't have access to git, so the oh-my-zsh install script won't work. Not to worry though! The install script didn't do anything we can't do ourselves!

  1. Change your shell to zsh:
    1. Type maint while logged into SDF ssh.
    2. At the menu, choose s to change your shell.
    3. Enter the path to zsh as presented.
    4. Press q to quit.
  2. Run the following commands:
    mv oh-my-zsh-master .oh-my-zsh
    cp .oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrc.zsh-template .zshrc
  3. Log out and log back in. That's it!
