oh-my-zsh is one of those rare tools that everybody seems to settle on. It's great to have options, but when there's an open-source tool that everybody agrees on, it becomes the new standard, and might impact how we work in the future. OmZ's git-based updates are painless and work like a charm, all scripting-based tools should take note and work on a similar update system. See More
Elias Van Ootegem's Experience
Installing plugin/extension that is not in the distribution (e.g. zsh-syntax-highlighting, powerlevel9k) requires git checkout and sometime creating symbolic link with adequate name (.plugin.zsh, .zsh-theme); also you have to remember to pull these repositories from time to time to update. See More
not the fastest zsh framework to use but the fastest to get set and running See More
A user doesn't have to be particularly technical to benefit from oh-my-zsh. You run a simple command to install and it asks you if it may check for git updates on a regular basis. You give up a bit of control but you get a tremendous benefit for very little individual effort. See More
This provides a robust update mechanism with full version control. That means that no custom mechanism needs to be implemented for upgrades of the user profile. It also means that your own modifications can be preserved while still allowing upgrades. And it means that you can downgrade at any time to any previous revision if anything doesn't work right with the new version. See More
very easy to install, and out of the box great features with unmatched speed See More
