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.

I was happy with Wes Bos' Cobalt 2 – but mate… Now, I'm a believer – Powerlevel10k is sweet!

how to shorten the directory?

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 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_PREFIX="%{$fg_bold[grey]%}git:(%{$fg[cyan]%}"
ZSH_THEME_GIT_PROMPT_SUFFIX="%{$reset_color%} "
ZSH_THEME_GIT_PROMPT_DIRTY="%{$fg[grey]%}) %{$fg[yellow]%}✗"
ZSH_THEME_GIT_PROMPT_CLEAN="%{$fg[grey]%})"

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

Without a doubt, Powerlevel10k.

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.

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.

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.

It's just like 9k but faster

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....

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

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.
