I use my terminal 90-100% of the time whenever I’m on my MacBook Pro and like many other developers I really like customising my terminal so that it helps me with my workflow.
I started using ZSH before Apple released it as the default shell in macOS Catalina, alongside with iTerm2. This combination was mainly done with Oh-My-ZSH and iTerm2. Recently I discovered PowerLevel10k which basically does the same thing as powerlevel9k but waaaaaaayyyy faster.
So here’s a guide on how to set it up
Step 1. Installing oh-my-zsh and iTerm2.
This step is fairly straight forward simply following the instructions at Oh-my-Zsh and you can install it, or you can just copy the install script below (installs via curl)
bashsh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ohmyzsh/ohmyzsh/master/tools/install.sh)"
iTerm2 is more straightforward, simply visit the website and just drag-n-drop it into your applications folder.
Step 2. Setup powerlevel10k
Now you can install powerlevel10k, simply visit the site:
Now follow the prompts and you should have a new and awesome tool!
