    :rocket::star: Minimalistic, powerful and extremely customizable Zsh prompt

    If you want all this and some more without setting it up yourself, oh-my-zsh spaceship prompt theme is great...

    I don't feel at home at a terminal without it by now, so one of my first installs after brew ;-)

  • starship

    ☄🌌️ The minimal, blazing-fast, and infinitely customizable prompt for any shell!

    > One of the most important changes I made to my bash setup was to change my prompt to multi line, detect whether I was in a git repo, include the branch in the prompt, and also include a summary of git status.

    Check out starship[1] if you haven't. It's a prompt that does just this and more, and works across shells like Bash, fish, zsh, etc.

    Pretty, minimal and fast ZSH prompt (by sindresorhus)

    My favorite for this purpose is pure prompt:

    I wasn’t sure about multi line at first, but really digging it now.
