starship 0.1.0-beta.0

The cross-shell prompt for astronauts. โ˜„๐ŸŒŒ๏ธ

โš ๏ธ This is very much work in progress, so please don't try to use it just yet!

Starship is a Rust port of the minimalistic, powerful, and extremely customizable prompt Spaceship ZSH.

Development plans

The project is beginning as a port of Spaceship ZSH, but will be improved in areas where Spaceship ZSH was previously limited:

  • Speed
  • Concurrency of segment logic execution
    • Memoization of expensive operations
  • Safety and error handling
  • Testability of code
  • Configuration
    • Cross-shell support with JSON or TOML config files

We will not be aiming to achieve full parity with Spaceship ZSH as a result, so I am very open to discussing and reevaluating new solutions and ideas for the prompt.

I'm very new to Rust, so any help is appreciated when it comes to improving development patterns, writing idiomatic Rust, performance, safety, etc. ๐Ÿ˜„
