What is your favorite ZSH theme?

I've being using the classic robbyrussell with Oh My ZSH for quite some time now, and I'm looking for ideas about what to used next.

So, what is your favorite ZSH theme?

Powerlevel10k is an order of magnitude faster, easier to configure and has more features. Give it a try.


Run p10k configure. If the directory is too long for your liking, open ~/.p10k.zsh, search for POWERLEVEL9K_DIR_MAX_LENGTH and set its value to 0.


I'm really liking the usage of color in this theme! Really lets you see what's important at a glance.


I have been using powerlevel10k for a while now. It has a nice setup/config and is pretty flexible.


Kind of a shameless self plug, but I've made my own based on a theme from bash-it that I really liked, you can find it here.

Well done with the theme! The blue/green color combination is a nice touch


Thanks, really appreciate your words :)


I made my own Frankenstein theme raw:

raw theme example

# Inspired by making a mixture the following themes:
# robbyrussell + arrow + lambda
# changing some colors and elements positions

local ret_status="%(?:%{$fg_bold[grey]%}λ :%{$fg_bold[red]%} λ )"
PROMPT=' ${ret_status}%{$fg[magenta]%}%c %{$fg[black]%}➤ %{$reset_color%}'
RPROMPT='$(git_prompt_info) %{$reset_color%}'

ZSH_THEME_GIT_PROMPT_SUFFIX="%{$reset_color%} "
ZSH_THEME_GIT_PROMPT_DIRTY="%{$fg[grey]%}) %{$fg[yellow]%}✗"

The Dracula 🧛‍♂️ theme is cool and minimalistic.


I use Dracula with VSCode, you can't really go wrong with it


I like the default theme.


You should check out Pure. It’s amazing. Doesn’t come default with Oh My Zsh, but you can install it and link it.


But there is one that is based on that theme, I think is called refined.


Wow! I really like the color and minimalism in that one.


Yeah. I changed from a custom theme I built about a month ago and I’m in love ❤️❤️❤️❤️


Agnoster is my perfered do far. Interested in trying refined though, looks nice.


My favourite theme for anything is Gruvbox, and I've been using variations on it since it came out.


Once I clear my plate, I'm gonna Try create my own.


You can use Powerlevel10k as a faster version of Powerlevel9k but it's not the whole thing. There are many features that exist only in Powerlevel10k. See github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k/b....


I’ve only ever used bullet train. 😊


I use Ubuntu on windows 10. And Space-ship is my favorite theme.


I've been using Dallas since installing ZSH. I am new to ZSH though, so it's only the 3rd or 4th theme I installed.


I used the default robbyrussell for a long time, but switched to bira. Happy with it so far. Need to try out space-ship and powerlevel10k though.
