    git includes git-prompt.sh which gives a pretty basic git prompt. Search for git-prompt* wherever git is installed on your machine. For me, it's /usr/local/Cellar/git/*/etc/bash_completion.d/git-prompt.sh on macOS and /etc/bash_completion.d/git-prompt on Linux

  • powerline

    Powerline is a statusline plugin for vim, and provides statuslines and prompts for several other applications, including zsh, bash, tmux, IPython, Awesome and Qtile.

    powerline includes prompts for bash and zsh that include git info. (despite selling itself as a vim statusline, I believe you can use its shell prompts without using it with vim.)

  • Sonar

  • powerline-shell

    A beautiful and useful prompt for your shell

    powerline-shell I think this is a shell-only fork of powerline?

  • powerlevel10k

    A Zsh theme

    I'm personally using powerlevel10k

  • perl-git-prompt

    Git extension for the bash prompt

  • posh-git

    A PowerShell environment for Git

    If you're on Windows, I've used posh-git in the past.
