Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Easy to use
Loading plugins can be done with a simple command. A git url can be specified to load plugins without any manual configuration or setup. Packages and themes from other plugin managers can be loaded from zgen without the entire plugin manager being installed.
Pro Clean .zshrc
zgen uses an init.zsh to load plugins which means basic load commands can be used in a zshrc making it easy to manage.
Pro Fast startup
zgen has a very fast startup if configured properly compared to oh-my-zsh.
Con Reset required after plugin update
Because an init.zsh is used, if you load more plugins you must run zgen reset to reset the init.zsh. This can be done automatically in a .zshrc with the zgen saved variable.
