A few quality of life functionalities to enhance your shell experiences:

  • Measured Execution Time : Calculate the elapsed time of the previously successful executed command.
    Don't know whether you have enough time to grab a coffee while waiting for the code to compile? Now you do.
  • Condensed Path : Got lost in a deep logs folder hierarchy? This will help you find your root and where you currently are.
    (Need full path? pwd is one command away)
  • Git Prompt :
    • Condensed Branch Name : shorten the branch name with > 18 chars long to save space.
      (git branch for the full branch name)
    • Git Status: Show the status of the current working git repository
      • ⇡ (Green) : Current branch is ahead of HEAD
      • ⇣ (Red) : Current branch is behind HEAD
      • * (Yellow) : Current branch has uncommitted changes (e.g: modified/added/deleted files)
