All notable changes to this project will be documented in this file.
No unreleased changes.
1.5.0 - 2021-08-09
- Option to use the new
zmodule, that is able to install and update modules from GitHub without requiring
git. Modules are installed faster and take less disk space when using this tool. It can be set as the default with
zstyle ':zim:zmodule' use 'degit'.
git clone. (See #404)
- Allow uninstalling modules with custom names that have a slash.
1.4.3 - 2021-03-19
- Prefer the prezto module format when using defaults to initialize a module.
This is the format we use in our Zim framework modules. It's not well
documented anywhere officially, but in short words a prezto module can have:
functionssubdirectory that is added to the fpath by the framework,
- files inside the
functionssubdirectory that are autoloaded by the framework (except for those with names matching
init.zshfile that is sourced by the framework.
1.4.2 - 2021-02-19
- "Not a valid ref: refs/remotes/origin/main" error in
zimfw update, when the repository's default branch was renamed to main.
1.4.1 - 2021-02-17
- Correctly get the repository's default branch in
zimfw update. The related change in version 1.4.0 actually broke updating the modules, as new changes stopped being fetched.
1.4.0 - 2021-01-07
- Prompt before uninstalling modules, unless
- Show build date in info.
- Show error when no parameter is provided to
- Use repository's default branch instead of hardcoding the default to
zimfw update, when no branch is specified in
1.3.2 - 2020-08-01
- Compiled files must also be cleaned from modules defined with absolute paths.
1.3.1 - 2020-07-24
- "gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file" error when trying to upgrade. (See #407)
1.3.0 - 2020-07-05
zmodule. This allows for executing any specified command.
1.2.2 - 2020-06-10
- Allow local modules to be initialized and compiled in their respective
directories, when absolute paths are given, instead of forcing them to be
1.2.1 - 2020-05-26
- "No such file or directory" error when building a new file. This was a
regression introduced after replacing
cksumin version 1.2.0.
- Show warning message when nothing found to be initialized in a module.
1.2.0 - 2020-05-17
xargs, so we don't depend on busybox or diffutils and findutils.
- Error messages and the
1.1.1 - 2020-01-26
- "no such file or directory" error before initial check for latest version.
- Show error when no modules defined in .zimrc, instead of allowing xargs to execute the action with no positional parameters.
1.1.0 - 2020-01-20
-vverbose option. Normal mode output is now focused on the specified action.
- Asynchronously check the latest version every 30 days. This can be disabled
zstyle ':zim' disable-version-check yes.
- When upgrading, download latest release asset instead of raw file from the master branch.
curlis preferred over
wget. (See #360)
wget's output is only shown in verbose mode.
1.0.1 - 2020-01-09
- Zsh 5.2 does not recognize the
:Pmodifier. Replace it by
- Also compile and clean .zprofile among the startup files.
- Don't fail on
clean-dumpfilewhen there's nothing to remove.
1.0.0 - 2020-01-07
This is a major change, where modules are not git submodules in the Zim repo anymore, but customized and installed separately as individual repositories. External modules can more easily be installed, updated and uninstalled. This makes Zim the first project for Zsh that is both a set of community-maintained modules with a default installation (like on-my-zsh and prezto) and a plugin manager (like antigen and zplug).
This version is not backwards-compatible with previous versions, so a new installation of Zim is required.
Take your time to review the updated README.md and the changes listed below.
zmodulefunction to define modules.
- Automatic installation script.
- zsh-users/zsh-autosuggestions is enabled by default in new installations.
- The Zim "core" is reduced to a single file, namely zimfw.zsh, that is
self-updated without requiring git. With this,
ZIM_HOMEis not (the root of) a git repo anymore.
- Zsh and modules are configured in .zshrc instead of .zimrc.
- .zimrc is not sourced during Zsh startup anymore, and only contains the module definitions.
- Zim's init.zsh and login_init.zsh scripts are generated by the
zimfwCLI tool and contain static code. This allows for constant startup time, regardless of how complex the module definitions are.
- Zim modules moved to individual repositories in the https://github.com/zimfw organization.
- Zim modules are configured with
zstyleinstead of environment variables.
- Zim themes are sourced directly, instead of working with prompinit, and are configured with environment variables instead of with promptinit parameters.
- The environment module is reduced in scope to to only set Zsh options. The additional code moved to the input module (smart-URL widgets), the utility module (default pager), and a new termtitle module (terminal window title).
- The minimal theme is renamed to s1ck94.
- The directory and history modules. Their code moved into the environment module.
- The prompt module, and the external lean, liquidprompt and pure themes.
zmodule miekg/lean, or
zmodule nojhan/liquidprompt, or
zmodule sindresorhus/pure --source async.zsh --source pure.zshto define one of these external themes, respectively. The Zim themes moved to individual repositories.
- Support for themes that require promptinit. (See #325)
ZIM_HOMEis set in .zshenv instead of .zshrc. The issue was that the variable was not available in .zlogin in non-interactive login shells.
