Install oh my zsh for cool templates
http://ohmyz.sh/

For MAC, open Terminal and run this command to install:
$ sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh)"

Find templates here:

There’s more! Fans have built some more themes here:
https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/wiki/External-themes

To change the theme for your Terminal on Mac:
1. Open .zshrc file. It’s usually in your User directory:
$ cd ~
2. Then open the .zshrc file in the Terminal editor nano:
$ sudo nano .zshrc
3. Find the line that says:
# ZSH_THEME="robbyrussell"
And change the theme name to any name in the Themes list

To use the External Themes, you’ll have to download the .zsh-theme file to be able to use it. Go to the External Themes link above and click the repository where the theme lives. In the repo file list, copy the file with the extension .zsh-theme and store it in your ~/.oh-my-zsh/themes/ folder. Then you can go into ./zshrc and change the theme name to that.

oh my zsh and iTerm2 are great ways to enhance your Terminal. It’s like having a Terminal on steroids!
