Installation

Installing Zim is easy:

  • With curl:

    curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/zimfw/install/master/install.zsh | zsh
    
  • With wget:

    wget -nv -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/zimfw/install/master/install.zsh | zsh
    

Open a new terminal and you're done! Enjoy your Zsh IMproved! Take some time to read about the available modules and tweak your ~/.zshrc file.

If you have a different shell framework installed (like oh-my-zsh or prezto), uninstall those first to prevent conflicts.

Manual installation

  1. Start a Zsh shell

    zsh
    
  2. Set Zsh as the default shell:

    chsh -s =zsh
    
  3. Copy https://github.com/zimfw/zimfw/releases/latest/download/zimfw.zsh to ~/.zim/zimfw.zsh.

  4. Add the lines in the following templates to the respective dot files:

  5. Install the modules defined in ~/.zimrc and build the initialization scripts:

    source ~/.zim/zimfw.zsh install
    

Usage

zmodule

Add zmodule calls to your ~/.zimrc file to define the modules to be initialized. The modules are initialized in the same order they are defined. Add:

zmodule <url> [-n|--name <module_name>] [options]

where <url> is the required repository URL or path. The following formats are equivalent: name, zimfw/name, https://github.com/zimfw/name.git.

By default, the module name is the last component in the <url>. Use the -n|--name <module_name> option to set a custom module name.

Repository options:

  • -b|--branch <branch_name>: Use specified branch when installing and updating the module. Overrides the tag option. Default: master.
  • -t|--tag <tag_name>: Use specified tag when installing and updating the module. Overrides the branch option.
  • -z|--frozen: Don't install or update the module.

Initialization options:

  • -f|--fpath <path>: Add specified path to fpath. The path is relative to the module root directory. Default: functions, if the subdirectory exists.
  • -a|--autoload <function_name>: Autoload specified function. Default: all valid names inside the module's specified fpath paths.
  • -s|--source <file_path>: Source specified file. The file path is relative to the module root directory. Default: the file with largest size matching {init.zsh|module_name.{zsh|plugin.zsh|zsh-theme|sh}}, if any exists.
  • -d|--disabled: Don't initialize or uninstall the module.

zimfw

Added new modules to ~/.zimrc? Run zimfw install.

Removed modules from ~/.zimrc? Run zimfw uninstall.

Want to update your modules to their latest revisions? Run zimfw update.

Want to upgrade zimfw to its latest version? Run zimfw upgrade.

For more information about the zimfw tool, run zimfw help.

Settings

By default, every 30 days zimfw will check if it has a new version available. This can be disabled with:

zstyle ':zim' disable-version-check yes

Uninstalling

The best way to remove Zim is to manually delete ~/.zim, ~/.zimrc, and remove the initialization lines from your ~/.zshenv, ~/.zshrc and ~/.zlogin.
