To be honest, I am a lazy person. It was a very long time that I use the default Arch Linux
.zshrc, they use the grml-zsh-config as their base config on their bootable image.
It was a "well, it works" experience for me, since the only things that I want from my terminal emulator is just a common things like command completions and finding history.
I am not saying that I don't need any basic stuff like commands aliases or a fun things like PS1 theming, but it really just fits in my daily usage even with the
.zshrc that shipped with the archlinux image.
Then I saw peoples are using some zsh frameworks, and yeah, I tried that too.
First of all, is the legendary oh-my-zsh. It was a great stuff. pretty powerfull and easy setup. changing some configuration like themes and plugins, is so easy.
But then I realize that my terminal emulator was not so fast comparing to the day when I use grml-zsh-config.
I mean, it was a great stuff and I like it but I think it was too over-powered for me LOL.
"I need this type of sh*t but with a faster performance"
My friends told me about antigen, but I did not enjoy with that.
Yeah it's minimal, but it does not feels really fast.
Well my first attention was not the features, but the logo.
Then I just do
return and then install that things, I am not even reading the entire README's markdown file LMAO.
But because it has zero built-in config, I have to configure before.
After an hours of finding some stuff like plugins and themes, my shell is finally done.
As you can see, there is bunch of oh-my-zsh libs right here XD
Yeah like I said before, I like oh-my-zsh, but it's too big for me.
Oh by the ways, here is the speed of zplug and with those plugins and themes:
Pretty fast, is it ? I mean, it just less than half of second! If I compare to the oh-my-zsh before, it was like 2-3 seconds to get into the interactive shell, and that's not a great things for such opening terminal emulator. :(
And for the last things, if you want to see my configs, you can look at my dotfiles here :
