This is really really good and would like to apply this to my terminal in Linux. However I have little to no experience in customizing my terminal. I always stick to bash because I'm a little bit scared to touch it if anything goes wrong lol..

Hope you can give some tips for the downright beginners =) this looks too good. =)

Then you're delighted to know that Starship is basically zero-configuration prompt. Install it and it's usable from the get go. Of course, you can customize it with the TOML file mentioned.

I think installation instructions here are pretty good. If you have Mac, you can just use Homebrew to fetch it. Hit me with a DM, if you get stuck.
