Looking for an existing zsh config...
Using the Oh My Zsh template file and adding it to ~/.zshrc
         __                                     __
  ____  / /_     ____ ___  __  __   ____  _____/ /_

                        /____/                       ....is now installed!


Please look over the ~/.zshrc file to select plugins, themes, and options.

That's all, now find yourself a fancy theme and place it in: ~/.zshrc

The default is ZSH_THEME=robbyrussell, I often use ZSH_THEME="aussiegeek"

To view the results of your edit simply reopen your ssh session.
