Promptool

A basic gui to make constructing a custom terminal prompt a little less soul-crushing.

Directions

Run main.py with your python 2 interpreter. If you want to you can make main.py executable, if your python interpreter is at /usr/bin/python2. The first line can be changed for your convenience. The finished prompt can be tested by running it in the terminal, or saved by putting it in the ~/.shellrc, where shell is whatever shell you're using. (Only bash right now!).

Bugs!

If the program crashes or throws exceptions or gives off a malformed prompt (unless you fed it a weird string through copy/paste [I filter normal input]) please, let me know and file an issue

Unimplemented Features!

Later on I'll be adding more features, like making the generated prompt show up in the gui somewhere, and possibly add other options. This is still a prototype of sorts, so I'm learning gtk and adding features as they occur to me, and I have time to implement them.

In Conclusion...

I hope this can be of some use to people out there! Feedback, feature ideas and anything else are appreciated.
