Options

SIMPALT_SMALL
Controls the presentation of the prompt

If set to anything, the prompt will be presented in compact mode; otherwise, the full prompt will be presented.

SIMPALT_PROMPT_SEGMENTS
Set the prompt segments to be presented

This array will set all segments that compose the prompt.

SIMPALT_MAIN_BRANCHES
Set the branches that do not require full name

When in a git repository, if the current branch is present in this list, it's name will be omitted.

Available segments:

  • prompt_aws
  • prompt_status
  • prompt_context
  • prompt_virtualenv
  • prompt_dir prompt_git

Suggested setup

You can enable quick switch between compact and full mode by registering something similar to the following in your .zshrc:

ts() { [ $SIMPALT_SMALL ] && unset SIMPALT_SMALL || SIMPALT_SMALL=1 }

Then, just use the ts command to swtich between prompt styles
