Dear command line fans, here is my 2 cents, powerline configuration.
All you need is to add these two configuration. They are theme (multiline) and colorscheme.
I haven’t done anything yet for tmux, and other powerline capabilities.
+ WM: Awesome WM
+ Shell: Fish
Always look at the official documentation first
Using package management is straightforward.
You can download manually based on documentation, or use package management above.
Install Font package
Font Package automaticaly installed as dependency.
Note: Terminus Font also works.
“Where and how can I set the
PS1 variable for Powerline bash?”
A good simple question.
The answer is in powerline manual documentation
There is no need to explicitly export PS1 in bash.
Here is a summary, with nice powerline-in-vim colour-scheme.
Terminal Above: .bashrc only (with ansi color art)
Terminal Below: .bashrc with powerline
No need to alter
.vimrc configuration in Arch/Manjaro
Since no official plugin for ViM, whe have to do it with PIP.
And insert this line to .viwmrc
Here is the place, you configure which colorscheme and theme you are using.
It define what widget, ad their position. It is going to be your choice, of what segment you need to show in your shell.
Note that BASH do not support right segment. Right segment is very useful when working with git. I usually switch to FISH, everytime I’m doing git.
You can see the sample in top of this this article.
Happy terminal customizing
