Wed Dec 31 07:27:24 MST 2014 - forked oh-my-zsh and added to dotfiles. After some time with zsh / oh-my-zsh I expect to switch to zgen, a zsh plugin manager.
zsh --version zsh 5.0.7 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu)
Change login shell to zsh
cat /etc/shells /etc/shells: valid login shells /bin/sh /bin/dash /bin/bash /bin/rbash /usr/bin/tmux /bin/zsh /usr/bin/zsh
chsh -s /bin/zsh

oh-my-zsh has always had noble intentions, yet it has fallen short as it has grown. I feel that a better, more sustainable solution is required for managing plugins in zsh.
Antigen so far has been a great attempt at that and my chosen tool to remedy these shortcomings of oh-my-zsh. As mentioned, it isn’t without its flaws but that is expected of projects; the base features are there which is far more important.
The manual way
1. Clone the repository as a submodule in ~/dotfiles
cd ~/dotfiles git submodule add -b craig firstname.lastname@example.org:CootCraig/oh-my-zsh.git .oh-my-zsh git submodule update --init
To update later
cd ~/dotfiles git submodule update --remote
2. Optionally, backup your existing ~/.zshrc file:
cp ~/.zshrc ~/.zshrc.orig
3. Create a new Zsh config file by copying the Zsh template we’ve provided:
cp ~/.oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrc.zsh-template ~/.zshrc
4. Set Zsh as your default shell:
chsh -s /bin/zsh
5. Start or restart Zsh by opening a new command-line window.

zgen - zsh plugin manager
A lightweight plugin manager for ZSH inspired by Antigen. Our goal is to have a minimal overhead when starting up the shell because nobody likes waiting. The script generates a static init.zsh file which does nothing but sources your plugins and appends them to fpath. The downside is that you have to update your plugins manually.
