Currently I am using Hyper.js Terminal for my Ubuntu on Windows with Oh My ZSH shell.
Here is are the steps on how I got it running like seen above.
Install Windows Subsystem Linux — https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10
Install Ubuntu on Windows from Microsoft Store or any other Linux flavor — https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/ubuntu/9nblggh4msv6
Install Hyper.js terminal — https://hyper.is/
I went for the hyper-material-theme to set it up press
, to bring up Hyper.js configuration file. Look for
plugins: [ edit and add the theme.
Setup Hyper.js to automatically open Ubuntu on Windows
- Open up Hyper.js configuration again and type
- Scroll down to shell and change it to
// the shell to run when spawning a new session (i.e. /usr/local/bin/fish)
// if left empty, your system's login shell will be used by default
// - Make sure to use a full path if the binary name doesn't work
// - Remove `--login` in shellArgs
// Bash on Windows
// - Example: `C:\\Windows\\System32\\bash.exe`
// PowerShell on Windows
// - Example: `C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\\WindowsPowerShell\\v1.0\\powershell.exe`
[Optional] Install screenfetch
sudo apt-get install screenfetch

Install Oh My ZSH

Change the ZSH Theme to agnoster
# Set name of the theme to load. Optionally, if you set this to "random"
# it'll load a random theme each time that oh-my-zsh is loaded.

Install Powerline Fonts on Windows 10 — If your font not displaying well for the terminal as agnoster uses these fonts.
