Neofetch is a CLI system information tool written in BASH. Neofetch displays information about your system next to an image, your OS logo, or any ascii file of your choice. The main purpose of Neofetch is to be used in screenshots to show other users what OS/Distro you're running, what Theme/Icons you're using and etc.
Neofetch is highly customizable through the use of commandline flags or the user config file. There are over 50 config options to mess around with and there's the
print_info() function and friends which let you add your own custom info.
Neofetch can be used on any OS that has BASH, it's just a matter of adding support. If your OS/Distro isn't in the list below, feel free to open an issue on the repo and I'll gladly add support. Neofetch currently supports
Windows (Cygwin/MSYS2/Windows 10 Linux subsystem).

Using the config file
Neofetch will by default create a config file at
$HOME/.config/neofetch/config and this file contains all of the script's options/settings. The config file allows you to keep your customizations between script versions and allows you to easily share your customizations with other people.
You can launch the script without a config file by using the flag
--config none and you can specify a custom config location using
See this wiki page for the default config: https://github.com/dylanaraps/neofetch/wiki/Config-File
Customizing what info gets displayed
Customizing the script using a custom alias
If you don't want to use the config file you can customize almost everything using launch flags!
Here's an example neofetch alias:
alias neofetch2="neofetch \ --config off \ --block_range 1 8 \ --bold off \ --uptime_shorthand on \ --gtk_shorthand on \ --colors 4 1 8 8 8 7 \ "
