starship 0.2.0

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

โš ๏ธ Starship is still a work in progress but is now far enough along to be used as a prompt (I personally use it as my daily driver)

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˜„

Setup

Prerequisites

  • Rust v1.33 or higher
  • A Powerline font (like Fira Code) installed and enabled in your terminal emulator

Getting Started

  1. Install the starship binary:

    cargo install starship
    
  2. Add the init script to your shell's config file:

    Bash / Zsh

    Add the following to the end of ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc:

    # ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc
    
    eval "$(starship init $0)"
    

    Fish

    Add the following to the end of ~/.config/fish/config.fish:

    # ~/.config/config.fish
    
    eval (starship init fish)
    

Configuration

๐Ÿšง Configuration features and documentation are in the process of being developed
