Customize your terminal with Oh-my-zsh for Fedora

I have customized my Linux Terminals. Terminals I use are Terminator and Terminology. I use zsh Shell and Oh-My-Zsh framework to add some cool functionality.

For instance, a cool prompt with git integration. I see a git notification in the prompt telling me that 1 file was modified and 11 files are not tracked. It is a summary from git status.

Cool command line plus git integration.

Nice Icons showing folders and file types …
