re: My terminal became more Rusty 🦀 VIEW POST


I used to use zsh + powerlevel9k as my prompt and even when I migrate to powerlevel10k, I still notice a delay when open new shell.

Powerlevel10k has a feature called Instant Prompt. Once you enable it, zsh will start instantly even if your .zshrc loads a dozen of slow plugins. AFAIK, Powerlevel10k is the only theme that can effectively reduce zsh startup time to zero without invasive changes to your configs.

As far as prompt speed goes (that is, the lag or absence thereof after every command), Powerlevel10k is currently significantly ahead of Starship. See github.com/starship/starship/discu....


it's seems interesting, I'll give powerlevel10k another try.
