First: love it. Now, 2 questions. How do you format that prompt? Multi-level and folder icon looks really slick. Secondly, is the date/time always there or is that part of neofetch? If it's always there I'd love to know how you set that up.

Thanks!

Using Powerlevel9k for that. Here's a gist of my settings for it.

Awesome, much appreciated! However, this is the first I'm hearing about Powerlevel9k and a cursory look at it tells me it may be a rabbit hole that never actually ends. So... thanks?

neofetch.

If you're on Mac with Homebrew installed just do brew install neofetch

Spacefish

Almost the same with Ali!

Using:

  • Hyper 3 as terminal app
  • tmux to create multiple sessions and split panes
  • Fish with Oh-My-Fish framework as default shell (theme is called Spacefish)
  • exa as replacement for ls
  • bat as replacement for cat (aliased here, though)
  • ...and many more nice things

I’m curious- why do you like Hyper 3? (I’ve never tried it)

Because there is no iTerm for Windows. With Hyper I can replicate this exactly same terminal experience on all platforms.

Well, Windows has a bit different font rendering but otherwise I can just hop between computers and stay productive.

The other terminal I'm using sometimes is the one built into VS Code which is another cross-platform dream.

Ahh I see I see.
I may try it but I wonder if it’s a bit of a hog with electron. I like that you can style it with css

It's not the fastest terminal emulator out there but definitely faster than Hyper 1 & 2. Impressive how much performance improvements ZEIT has been able to put into their latest release. Definitely shows that Electron apps do not need to be resource hogs.

Fish is great. I'm always surprised it is not more popular.

I'd guess in the past it has been too exotic a choice for daily usage as you would have to chain commands like mkdir newdir; and cd newdir instead of basic &&. Now the game has changed, though, so let's keep on praising it. 🎉

ls aliased as l in shell config file. Icons and colors can be achieved with colorls github.com/athityakumar/colorls

Thanks !

I've found another way to do so: github.com/Peltoche/lsd + alias ls=lsd.

lsd

wow, thanks for sharing this. I've recently started setting up wsl2 on different distro, will try this lsd instead, got me at rust 😄. Btw, your terminal looks great, may I know it's details?

Edit: I have tried lsd, confirm that's it's amazingly fast, no hiccups as observed with colorls. I'll have to see its performance together with spaceship prompt and other zsh plugin, my original setup in wsl1.

Are you part of OperationCode.org or does the opcode prompt mean something different to you?

Collapse

Hi, actually I didn't know OperationCode.org before.

My opcode username is related to CPU;

An opcode is the first byte of an instruction in machine language which tells the hardware what operation needs to be performed with this instruction. Every processor/controller has its own set of opcodes defined in its architecture. An opcode is followed by data like address, values, etc if needed.

  • WM: GNOME
  • Terminal: urxvt

  • Process Manager: htop
  • Audio Visualizer: cava

Thank you very much for this. I don't really understand all of the jargon like wal as I'm new in experimenting in the Terminal. I want to learn what is the advantage of Oh My Zsh than the normal bash, and their differences.
