Back in 2010 I created my very own theme for Z-Shell and a few months later I started publishing my dotfiles
on Gitorious instead of just this blog.
Update: After Gitorous closed down, I moved my code to GitLab.
Around that time someone already asked why I do not use Oh My ZSH! and include my theme there. At that time that project was still relatively young1 and I did not see much benefit to start using its whole package. In addition to that I was still in early stages of getting to know Z-Shell and wanted to play around by myself for a bit.
In the meantime Oh My ZSH! has matured and gained in popularity to the extent that they currently do not accept new themes. If I could turn back time, I think I would rather try to get involved with that project sooner2.
For the moment I will continue to maintain my own Z-Shell settings in a separate repository, but base them on Oh My ZSH! as a git submodule. I also plan to upstream as much as possible.
