Dynamic R Prompt

Lifecycle Status R build status

Set the R prompt dynamically, from a function. The package contains some examples.

Examples

This is prompt_fancy() and it has

  • The status of the last command (success or failure).
  • The amount of memory allocated by the current R process.
  • The name of the R package being developed using devtools.
  • Name of the active git branch.
  • State of the git working tree (needs pushes, pulls, and/or dirty).

A powerline clone, that also shows the system load average and the current working directory.

Installation

Install the package from CRAN, as usual:

install.packages("prompt")

Usage

Use one of the pre-defined prompts, as on the screenshots, or create your own. You can set the prompt in your .Rprofile. Maybe you only want to do this in interactive mode:

if (interactive()) prompt::set_prompt(prompt::prompt_fancy)

or the powerline prompt:

if (interactive()) prompt::set_prompt(prompt::new_prompt_powerline())
