These frameworks make customizing your zsh setup easier.

alf4 3

Alf is an out of this world super fast and configurable framework for ZSH; it's modeled after Prezto and Antigen while utilizing Oh-My-Zsh under the covers; and offers standard defaults, aliases, functions, auto completion, automated updates and installable prompt themes and plugins.

ansible-role-zsh79 12

ansible-role-zsh is an ansible role with zero-knowledge installation. It uses antigen to manage bundles and oh-my-zsh. Can load bundles conditionally. By default it includes powerlevel9k theme, autosuggestions, syntax-highlighting and fzf-widgets. Fully customizable.

ant-zsh2 0

Ant-zsh is a tiny and lightweight ZSH configuration environment for special customization needs. It includes plugins, themes and a basic convenient setup.

antibody120 11

Antibody A faster and simpler antigen written in Golang. More details at

antigen-hs190 24

antigen-hs is a replacement for antigen optimized for a low overhead when starting up the shell. It will automatically clone plugins for you.

antigen4k 216

Antigen is a small set of functions that help you easily manage your shell (ZSH) plugins, called bundles. The concept is pretty much the same as bundles in a typical vim+pathogen setup. Antigen is to ZSH, what Vundle is to vim. Antigen can load oh-my-zsh themes and plugins and will automatically clone them for you.


Ax-ZSH is a modular configuration system for ZSH. It provides sane defaults and is extendable by plugins.

dotzsh33 8

Dotzsh strives to be platform and version independent. Some functionality may be lost when running under older versions of ZSH, but it should degrade cleanly and allow you to use the same setup on multiple machines of differing OSes without problems.

fresh841 99

fresh is a tool to source shell configuration (aliases, functions, etc) from others into your own configuration files. We also support files such as ackrc and gitconfig. Think of it as Bundler for your dot files.


oh-my-zsh is a community-driven framework for managing your ZSH configuration. Includes 120+ optional plugins (rails, git, macOS, hub, capistrano, brew, ant, macports, etc), over 120 themes to spice up your morning, and an auto-update tool that makes it easy to keep up with the latest updates from the community.

prezto9k 5k

Prezto enriches the ZSH command line interface environment with sane defaults, aliases, functions, auto completion, and prompt themes.


Pumice is a lightweight plugin manager for ZSH.

Toasty1 1

Toasty is a ZSH framework made to facilitate management, not dictate it.

zeesh11 2

Zeesh is a cross-platform ZSH framework. It's similar to, but incompatible with, oh-my-zsh. It has a modular plugin architecture making it easy to extend. It has a rich set of defaults, but is designed to be as lightweight as possible.

zgen818 80

Zgen is a lightweight plugin manager for ZSH inspired by Antigen. The 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 source your plugins and append them to your fpath. The downside is that you have to refresh the init script manually with zgen reset whenever you update your .zshrc. Can load oh-my-zsh compatible plugins and themes, and will automagically clone them for you when you add them to your plugin list.

zilsh14 0

zilsh is a ZSH config system that aims to appeal more to power-users and follow the simplistic approach of vim-pathogen.

zim925 130

Zim is a ZSH configuration framework with blazing speed and modular extensions.


zit is a plugin manager for ZSH. It is minimal because it implements the bare minimum to be qualified as a plugin manager: it allows the user to install plugins from Git repositories (and Git repositories only, them why the name), source plugins and update them. It does not implement fancy functions like cleanup of removed plugins, automatic compilation of installed plugins, alias for oh-my-zsh/prezto/other ZSH frameworks, building binaries, PATH manipulation and others.

zoppo13 3

Zoppo is the crippled configuration framework for ZSH. As an Italian saying goes: "chi va con lo zoppo, impara a zoppicare", we realized we were walking with a cripple and are now going to become crippled ourselves.


Zpacker is a lightweight ZSH plugin & theme management framework.

zplug1k 91
