    I'm the maintainer of pure prompt for Fish and love to test my projects. Until a few months back, I was using andreiborisov' docker images to run pure tests in isolated context (thanks so much :). However, new Fish versions were missing, and the build process was too complex to update for the time I had and what I needed:

  • zsh-kubectl-prompt

    Display information about the kubectl current context and namespace in zsh prompt.

    Project mention: I really want to use Gentoo but I'm tired of the compiling | /r/Gentoo | 2023-04-11

    Yeah. Things have clearly got a bit out of hand when even the creator of KISS Linux satirises the situation: "promptless, a super fast and extremely minimal shell prompt".

  • polyglot

    Color, ASCII-only Git prompt for zsh, bash, ksh93, mksh, pdksh, oksh, dash, yash, busybox ash, and osh (by agkozak)

    Project mention: agkozak/dotfiles for all your POSIX and near-POSIX needs | /r/dotfiles | 2022-08-24

    I've spent the last few years tweaking a set of dotfiles that support a ridiculous number of shells (I also develop the pan-POSIX Polyglot Prompt, so I need everything to work when I launch a different shell). The most advanced stuff is for zsh, tmux, and vim, though.

  • bash-cache

    Transparent caching layer for bash functions; particularly useful for functions invoked as part of your prompt.

    Project mention: Why is it that a command run from the terminal command line produces line break but the same command run within bash script has no line break/ | /r/bash | 2023-04-19

    This is usually what a caller expects, but it's definitely surprising when it isn't. I encountered this with my bash-cache library because simpler approaches to caching commands will use command substitutions which turns out to be lossy (because it drops any trailing newlines).
