I tried a new Linux (Ubuntu) terminal setup and it's a blast. I want to share it with you.
- Terminator terminal to support splitting the terminal screen vertically and horizontally into multiple windows. Extremely useful when working with distributed systems like blockchain.
- ZSH framework to add productivity plugins and custom color themes.
- Powerlevel10k for "speed, flexibility and out-of-the-box experience."
sudo apt-get install terminator
sudo apt install zsh
And make it your default shell:
chsh -s $(which zsh)
Or checkout the official ZSH Github repo and choose your favorite installation process.
The great thing about ZSH is the level of personalization possible. I found this theme which looks pretty solid: https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k#meslo-nerd-font-patched-for-powerlevel10k
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k.git ~/powerlevel10k echo 'source ~/powerlevel10k/powerlevel10k.zsh-theme' >>! ~/.zshrc source ~/.zshrc
Ready for the cool part? The theme comes with an interactive guide for setting everything as you wish, "to your gusto".
In case you have a weakness for a specific font, you can install it and configure it according to the PowerLevel10k's fonts instructions.
The last personalization I did so far, was enabling the battery status inside the terminal screen.
You are done!
Let me know on Twitter if you like this setup!
