Posh2K - A universal prompt for power users πŸ’ͺ🌈

What is this

Posh2K is a prompt for oh-my-posh, it works on all shells, has multiple segments with aesthetically pleasing colors.

Inspiration

Most of my workflow is based on the command line, recently I had to use a Windows system for some work and was really displeased by the CLI experience.

So, I needed a prompt that can work across shells and has support for different segments and Posh2K was born.

Prerequisites

Before you begin, ensure you have met the following requirements:

  • You have installed the latest version of oh-my-posh

Getting Posh2K

To get Posh2K, follow these steps:

git clone https://github.com/2kabhishek/Posh2K

# for Powershell, add this to $Profile
oh-my-posh init pwsh --config ~/PATH_TO_DIR/Posh2K/posh2k.omp.json | Invoke-Expression

# for Zsh, add this to ~/.zshrc
eval "$(oh-my-posh init zsh --config ~/PATH_TO_DIR/Posh2K/posh2k.omp.json)"

# for Bash, add this to ~/.bashrc
eval "$(oh-my-posh init bash --config ~/PATH_TO_DIR/Posh2K/posh2k.omp.json)"

# for Fish, add this to ~/config/fish/config.fish
oh-my-posh init fish --config ~/PATH_TO_DIR/Posh2K/posh2k.omp.json | source

# for nu shell, run
oh-my-posh init nu --config ~/PATH_TO_DIR/Posh2K/posh2k.omp.json
source ~/oh-my-posh.nu

# for cmd, install Clink, then add this
load(io.popen('oh-my-posh init cmd --config ~/PATH_TO_DIR/Posh2K/posh2k.omp.json'):read("*a"))()

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Honestly, after using this for quite a while, this is REALLY AWESOME. Because sometimes when the branch is master or main, I can just glance up to the terminal to see which branch I have to commit to, making this extremely useful. Thanks!

yup, you also get indicators for language versions, env settings and even much more if you customize custom sections, sky is the limit!

You are right, I don't use cmd/clink but it should have options to write configs in lua

erm... ok one question for you, where did you actually get the line of code for clink and cmd? To add it? (in which case, I am saying, if you have any documentation maybee it's better to link it on the readme hehehehudhfedhe ok sorry I'll do more digging)

Also I'd suggest not to use CMD unless you really have to, Powershell is much better comparatively

Just by using the Spotify app.
