You can install zsh-abbr with a zsh plugin manager. Each has their own way of doing things. See your package manager's documentation or the zsh plugin manager plugin installation procedures gist; Fig users can install zsh-abbr from its page in the Fig plugin directory
After adding the plugin to the manager, it will be available in all new terminals. To use it in an already-open terminal, restart zsh in that terminal:
- Either download the latest release's archive from https://github.com/olets/zsh-abbr/releases and expand it (ensures you have the latest official release)
- or clone a single branch:Replace
git clone https://github.com/olets/zsh-abbr --single-branch --branch <branch> --depth 1
<branch>with a branch name. Good options are
main(for the latest stable release),
next(for the latest release, even if it isn't stable).
source path/to/zsh-abbr.zsh to your
path/to/ with the real path), and restart zsh:
