    Thankfully, I found Starship, a super fast, super configurable prompt written in Rust. It works with most shells, on most operating systems. - Source: / about 1 month ago

  • Atuin – Magical Shell History
    Agreed, I use this in conjunction with Starship [1], both initialized specifically for Fish in the config. I love this shell so much. [1] - - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago

  • Oh My Zsh
    Recently, I moved off from oh-my-zsh after many users, to vanilla zsh with, mainly due to the loading speed (used to measure the speed). Still wanting to try out fish and hopefully soon! - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • Z – Jump Around
    It seems like the Rust community is quite happy to support alternative shells. I’ve seen couple of projects, now, that support way more esoteric shells than I would expect, like ’xonsh’. Starship ( immediately comes to mind. - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • [MacOS] Setting up zsh in MacOS, any hints, dos/don'ts, advice, or guides?
    Until now I have been using bash on Windows with Starship as the prompt. The only reason I went with Starship, is that it was easy to setup and at the time I did not have much free time to devout to the shell/prompt configuration. Source: 8 months ago
  • Monaspace
    I'm staying on BitstromWera Nerd Font. Works great with Starship. - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • Organizing Multiple Git Identities
    I use conditional includes for this, but I also add a single letter describing which Git identity I'm currently using to my PS1 so that it appears before $ in my shell prompt. This prevents me from committing code with the wrong identity, in case I'm using a git checkout that's anywhere not covered by the conditional include rules. I use Starship ( to manage my prompt, and wrote a short script... - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • fish-shell: the user-friendly command-line shell

  • Lightweight dev tools.
    After a little research I came across starship (also written in Rust) which is a “blazing-fast, and infinitely customizable prompt for any shell”. I deleted almost all of my .zshrc and replaced it with eval "$(starship init zsh)". I also had to manually add hooks for asdf, direnv and a couple of other tools that I had been relying on oh-my-zsh plugins for. - Source: / 11 months ago
  • Starship is a cross-shell prompt with support for docker context
    I just came across Starship, which is a fast, customisable cross-shell prompt, and it has built-in support for a ton of things, including docker context. Source: 12 months ago
  • How do developers make your terminal "look good"?
    I use starship (alternative: oh my posh) to get a fancy prompt. Both work on Linux, MacOS and Windows (including WSL), so you can have a consistent prompt no matter where you are. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Everything I Installed on My New Mac
    For my prompt, I still use Starship although my configuration has changed a bit. I've switched the pure preset which is a lot more minimal and less distracting. - Source: / about 1 year ago
  • Warp? A terminal behind login popup
    After rather quick sign up process, we see the first screen. Initial impression is good, clean UI, it picked up my shell correctly, it seems that the prompt is overridden, Starship is a prompt of my choice and warp seems to have it's own configuration. Let's check if we are able to configure it. Following hints on the screen, and typing prompt into command palette, there is a setting to use user's own prompt config. - Source: / about 1 year ago
  • Improving the terminal
    As I commented at the beginning of this post, the shell is the interface with which we interact with the operating system. And interfaces should be user-friendly and beautiful. One way to achieve this is by using a tool that allows customizations, and the tip I want to leave here is Starship. It is an application made in Rust, and we can use it in any shell to allow customizations of the prompt. The prompt is the... - Source: / about 1 year ago
  • Can't Get Terminal to Colorize Using One Dark Pro on macOS
    This it's not vs code thing. This is a shell thing. What shell are you using? You can tie echo $0 to check with shell you are using. There are a lot of prompts on the internet (well you can build your own prompt but I cant even do that). For example starship (for any shell) powershell (for zsh) there are many more on the internet.

  • Software that you love and/or makes your job easier
    I almost exclusively SSH nowadays, so when I'm on Windows I use Scoop and use Windows Terminal, PowerShell Core with Starship, openssh (or git-with-openssh), and coreutils. This setup fits fairly well with my general Linux workflow. All of this easily installable with scoop. Source: about 1 year ago
  • My Fedora 38 setup:
    I like starship for something extremely easy to use (zero config, single binary); they have a power line preset if you’re committed to that aesthetic:. Source: about 1 year ago
  • My ultimate shell setup with Fish shell and Tmux
    I used to do that very custom setup for a few years... Lately I've settled for doesn't matter the shell the experience is the same. I find it difficult sometimes to use loops or variable creation on fish, so jumping to bash real quick without changing experience is so convenient... Another thing I don't like is that if I create a one liner at work to process batches of files/hosts in fish,... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
