Posh terminals!

Posh terminals?

Image description

First thing you may notice, is that it isn't your regular boring terminal!

So what is this?

This is oh-my-posh, an open sourced project that basically makes your terminals posh. The best part, is that the community can create new fonts, new looks and styles. It uses NerdFonts, in which you can create one, and you can also create new designs at Oh-my-posh.

Some warnings!

Unfortunately, I feel that the documentation is lacking quite a bit. So I had to do some digging to get to this stage. But here are some things you would really want to know

  • If you are a windows user, install oh-my-posh for powershell. Command prompt is outdated and has really confusing steps to install, and I didn't even manage to install it in the end
  • I felt that installing oh-my-posh from microsoft store was the easiest (lmao, I'm lazy). I don't really know how to install oh-my-posh in other ways

I would probably help rewrite the docs for all the stuff in the not so far future.

Links!

I've used Posh and Starship. I like Posh more, but that is my preference!
