Antigen not updating
Let’s take a better look at the issues that oh-my-zsh has.
Using version control for something as volatile as plugins is a bit strange.
It features “120 optional plugins” and just as many themes for your beloved shell.
It has a great default library that turns on a lot of great zsh features that make it better for new users.
Antigen relies on Git and when Git isn’t installed, you are greeted with some pretty errors every single time a shell is opened.
Obviously the fix would be to check if all the required tools are installed before blindly proceeding.
It isn’t that bad of a process but it is extra work and I’d argue forks aren’t the best for this.
oh-my-zsh has done a lot for the community and has helped make zsh popular.
Using a massive repository for this just isn’t the greatest idea for maintaining a list of plugins.It was never “designed” to support the plugin directory that it is trying to be.The intention of providing plugins has grown beyond manageability.In fact, all of this is mentioned in the Motivation section of the README.Antigen has a great set of features as of right now.
