In order to install fishline, you will need to clone this repository somewhere and specify this path in your
config.fish file as well as sourcing the
init.fish file present from the repository.
Here is an example on how to do it, by cloning
fishline in your
git clone https://github.com/0rax/fishline.git/ ~/.config/fish/fishline
Then modify your
~/.config/fish/config.fish and add:
if status is-interactive set FLINE_PATH $HOME/.config/fish/fishline source $FLINE_PATH/init.fish end
This is the easiest way to install
fishline in your fish-shell environment. Fisher will install it and link all the needed functions for you by running the following command:
fisher install 0rax/fishline
This will allow you to use the
fishline command directly and access to all the possible theming / configuration available as if you installed it manually.
NOTE: When installing fishline using Fisher, a file named
fishline-init.fishwill be created in
~/.config/fish/conf.d. If you wish to configure, you should not update this file but instead create a new one to set your configuration variable, just make sure that this file is loaded after it (naming the file
To use fishline as your prompt, update or create a
fish_prompt.fish file in your
functions folder (
~/.config/fish/functions by default) to include:
function fish_prompt fishline -s $status end
