Go Bullet Train (GBT)

Highly configurable prompt builder for Bash and ZSH written in Go. It's inspired by the Oh My ZSH Bullet Train theme.

Demo

GBT comes with an interesting feature called prompt forwarding which allows to forward prompt generated by GBT to a remote machine. With this feature it's possible to have the same-looking prompt across all remote machines via SSH but also in Docker, Vagrant, MySQL or in Screen.

Prompt forwarding demo

All the above works well on Linux (Terminator, Konsole, Gnome Terminal), Mac (Terminal, iTerm) and Android (Termux).

Installation

Arch Linux

yaourt -S gbt

Or install gbt-git if you would like to run the latest greatest from the master branch.

CentOS/RHEL

Packages hosted by Packagecloud):

echo '[gbt]
name=GBT YUM repo
baseurl=https://packagecloud.io/gbt/release/el/7/$basearch
gpgkey=https://packagecloud.io/gbt/release/gpgkey
gpgcheck=1' | sudo tee /tmp/gbt.repo >/dev/null
yum install gbt

Use the exact repository definition from above for all RedHat-based distribution regardless its version.

Ubuntu/Debian

Packages hosted by Packagecloud):

curl -L https://packagecloud.io/gbt/release/gpgkey | sudo apt-key add -
echo 'deb https://packagecloud.io/gbt/release/ubuntu/ xenial main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gbt.list >/dev/null
apt-get update
apt-get install gbt

Use the exact repository definition from above for all Debian-based distribution regardless its version.

Mac

Using Homebrew:

brew tap jtyr/repo
brew install gbt

Or install gbt-git if you would like to run the latest greatest from the master branch.

Android

Install Termux from Google Play Store and then type this in the Termux app:

apt update
apt install gbt

From the source code

Make sure Go is installed and then run:

mkdir ~/go
export GOPATH=~/go
go get -u github.com/jtyr/gbt/cmd/gbt
go install github.com/jtyr/gbt/cmd/gbt
export PATH="$PATH:$GOPATH/bin"

Activation

After GBT is installed, it can be activated by calling it from the shell prompt variable:

# For Bash
PS1='$(gbt $?)'
# For ZSH
PROMPT='$(gbt $?)'

Fonts and colors

In order to display all characters of the prompt correctly, the shell should support UTF-8 and Nerd fonts (or at least the DejaVuSansMono Nerd font) should be installed. On Linux, you can install it like this:

mkdir ~/.fonts
curl -L -o ~/.fonts/DejaVuSansMonoNerdFontCompleteMono.ttf https://github.com/ryanoasis/nerd-fonts/raw/master/patched-fonts/DejaVuSansMono/Regular/complete/DejaVu%20Sans%20Mono%20Nerd%20Font%20Complete%20Mono.ttf
fc-cache

On Mac, it can be installed via brew:

brew tap homebrew/cask-fonts
brew cask install font-hack-nerd-font-mono

Once the font is installed, the font has to be set in the terminal application to render all prompt characters correctly. Search for the font name DejaVuSansMono Nerd Font Mono on Linux and for Hack Nerd Font Mono on Mac.

In order to have the Nerd fonts in Termux on Android, you have to install Termux:Styling application. Then longpress the terminal screen and select MORE...StyleCHOOSE FONT and there choose the DejaVu font.

Some terminals might not use 256 color palette by default. In such case the following must be set:

export TERM='xterm-256color'

Configuration

The prompt (train) is assembled from several elements (cars). The look and behavior of whole train as well as each car can be influenced by a set of environment variables. Majority of the

Colors

The value of all _BG and _FG variables defines the background and foreground color of the particular element. The value of the color can be specified in 3 ways:

Color name

Only a limited number of named colors is supported:

  • black black
  • red red
  • green green
  • yellow yellow
  • blue blue
  • magenta magenta
  • cyan cyan
  • light_gray light_gray
  • dark_gray dark_gray
  • light_red light_red
  • light_green light_green
  • light_green light_yellow
  • light_blue light_blue
  • light_magenta light_magenta
  • light_cyan light_cyan
  • white white
  • default (default color of the terminal)

Examples:

# Set the background color of the `Dir` car to red
export GBT_CAR_DIR_BG='red'
# Set the foreground color of the `Dir` car to white
export GBT_CAR_DIR_FG='white'

Color number

Color can also by expressed by a single number in the range from 0 to 255. The color of each number in that range is visible in the 256-color lookup table on Wikipedia. The named colors described above are the first 16 numbers from the lookup table.

Examples:

# Set the background color of the `Dir` car to red
export GBT_CAR_DIR_BG='1'
# Set the foreground color of the `Dir` car to white
export GBT_CAR_DIR_FG='15'

RGB number

Arbitrary color can be expressed in the form of RGB triplet.

Examples:

# Set the background color of the `Dir` car to red
export GBT_CAR_DIR_BG='170;0;0'
# Set the foreground color of the `Dir` car to white
export GBT_CAR_DIR_FG='255;255;255'

Formatting

Formatting is done via _FM variables. The possible values are:

  • normal

    Makes the text normal.

  • dim

    Makes the text dim.

  • bold

    Makes the text bold. Not all font characters have variant for bold formatting.

  • underline

    Makes the text underlined.

  • blink

    Makes the text to blink.

  • invert

    Makes the text color inverted.

  • hide

    Makes the text hidden.

  • none

    No formatting applied.

    Multiple formattings can be combined into comma-separated list.

    Examples:

    # Set the directory name to be bold
    export GBT_CAR_DIR_FM='bold'
    # Set the directory name to be bold and underlined
    export GBT_CAR_DIR_FM='bold,underline'

Train variables

  • GBT_CARS='Status, Os, Hostname, Dir, Git, Sign'

    List of cars used in the train.

    To add a new car into the train, the whole variable must be redefined. For example in order to add the Time car into the default set of cars between the Os and Hostname car, the variable should look like this:

    export GBT_CARS='Status, Os, Time, Hostname, Dir, Git, Sign'
  • GBT_RCARS='Time'

    The same like GBT_CARS but for the right hand side prompt.

    # Add the Custom car into the right hand site car to have the separator visible
    export GBT_RCARS='Custom, Time'
    # Make the Custom car to be invisible (zero length text)
    export GBT_CAR_CUSTOM_BG='default'
    export GBT_CAR_CUSTOM_FORMAT=''
    # Show only time
    export GBT_CAR_TIME_FORMAT=' {{ Time }} '
    # Set the right hand side prompt (ZSH only)
    RPROMPT='$(gbt -right)'
  • GBT_SEPARATOR=''

    Character used to separate cars in the train.

  • GBT_RSEPARATOR=''

    The same like GBT_SEPARATOR but for the right hand side prompt.

  • GBT_CAR_BG

    Background color inherited by the top background color variable of every car. That allows to set the background color of all cars via single variable.

  • GBT_CAR_FG

    Foreground color inherited by the top foreground color variable of every car. That allows to set the foreground color of all cars via single variable.

  • GBT_CAR_FM

    Formatting inherited by the top formatting variable of every car. That allows to set the formatting of all cars via single variable.

  • GBT_BEGINNING_BG='default'

    Background color of the text shown at the beginning of the train.

  • GBT_BEGINNING_FG='default'

    Foreground color of the text shown at the beginning of the train.

  • GBT_BEGINNING_FM='none'

    Formatting of the text shown at the beginning of the train.

  • GBT_BEGINNING_TEXT=''

    Text shown at the beginning of the train.

  • GBT_SHELL

    Indicates which shell is used. The value can be either zsh, bash or plain. By default, the value is extracted from the $SHELL environment variable. Set this variable to bash if your default shell is ZSH but you want to test GBT in Bash:

    export GBT_SHELL='bash'
    bash

    If set to plain, no shell-specific decoration is included in the output text. That's suitable for displaying the GBT-generated string in the console output.

Benchmark

Benchmark of GBT can be done by faking the output of GBT by a testing script which executes as minimum of commands as possible. For simplicity, the test will produce output of the Git car only and will be done from within a directory with a Git repository.

The testing script is using exactly the same commands like GBT to determine the Git branch, whether the Git repository contains any change and whether it's ahead/behind of the remote branch. The script has the following content and is stored in /tmp/test.sh:

BRANCH="$(git symbolic-ref HEAD)"
[ -z "$(git status --porcelain)" ] && DIRTY_ICON='%{\e[38;5;2m%}✔' || DIRTY_ICON='%{\e[38;5;1m%}✘'
[[ "$(git rev-list --count HEAD..@{upstream})" == '0' ]] && AHEAD_ICON='' || AHEAD_ICON=''
[[ "$(git rev-list --count @{upstream}..HEAD)" == '0' ]] && BEHIND_ICON='' || BEHIND_ICON=''

echo -en "%{\e[0m%}%{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%} %{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%}%{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%} %{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%}${BRANCH##*/}%{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%} %{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%}%{\e[48;5;7m%}$DIRTY_ICON%{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%}%{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%}%{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%}$AHEAD_ICON%{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%}%{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%}$BEHIND_ICON%{\e[48;5;7m%}%{\e[38;5;0m%} %{\e[0m%}"

The testing script produces the same output like GBT when run by Bash or ZSH:

bash /tmp/test.sh > /tmp/a
zsh /tmp/test.sh > /tmp/b
GBT_SHELL='zsh' GBT_CARS='Git' gbt > /tmp/c
diff /tmp/{a,b}
diff /tmp/{b,c}

We will use ZSH to run 10 measurements of 100 executions of the testing script by Bash and ZSH as well as of GBT itself.

From the above is visible that GBT performs faster than Bash and ZSH even if the testing script was as simple as possible. You can also notice that GBT was using more CPU than Bash or ZSH. That's probably because of the built-in concurrency support in Go.

Prompt forwarding

In order to enjoy GBT prompt via SSH but also in Docker, Vagrant, MySQL or in Screen without the need to install GBT everywhere, you can use GBTS (GBT witten in Shell). GBTS is a set of scripts which get forwarded to applications and remote connections and then executed to generate the nice looking prompt.

You can start using it by doing the following:

export GBT__HOME='/usr/share/gbt'
source "$GBT__HOME/sources/gbts/cmd/local.sh"
alias docker='gbt_docker'
alias mysql='gbt_mysql'
alias screen='gbt_screen'
alias ssh='gbt_ssh'
alias su='gbt_su'
alias sudo='gbt_sudo'
alias vagrant='gbt_vagrant'

If you want to have the alias available only on the remote machine, prepend the alias by gbt___. For example to have the sudo alias, using the gbt_sudo function, available only on the remote machine, define the alias like this:

alias gbt__sudo='gbt_sudo'

The same principle applies to any alias you want to have available on the remote machine. For example to have alias ll='ls -l' on any remote machine, just create the following alias and it will be automatically forwarded:

alias gbt__ll='ls -l'

After the prompt forwarding is configured, just SSH to some remote server or enter some Docker container or Vagrant box and you should get GBT-like looking prompt.

The idea of prompt forwarding is coming from Vladimir Babichev (@mrdrup) who was using it for several years before GBT even existed. After seeing the potential of GBT, he sparked the implementation of prompt forwarding into GBT which later turned into GBTS.

Principle

Principle of GBTS is to pass the GBTS scripts to the application and then execute them. This is done by concatting all the GBTS scripts into one file and encoding it by Base64 algorithm. Such string, together with few more commands, is then used as an argument of the application which makes it to store it on the remote site in the /tmp/.gbt.<NUM> file. The same we create the /tmp/.gbt.<NUM>.bash script which is then used as a replacement of the real shell on the remote site. For SSH it would look like this:

ssh -t myserver "export GBT__CONF='$GBT__CONF' && echo '<BASE64_ENCODED_STRING>' | base64 -d > \$GBT__CONF && bash --rcfile \$GBT__CONF"

In order to make all this invisible, we wrap that command into a function (e.g. gbt_ssh) and assign it to an alias of the same name like the original application (e.g. ssh):

alias ssh='gbt_ssh'

The same or very similar principle applies to other supported commands like docker, mysql, screen, su, sudo and vagrant.

Additional settings

GBTS has few settings which can be used to influence which functionality to pass on the remote site how the much the sources compress should be compressed. See the details here.

MacOS users

To make GBTS working correctly between Linux and MacOS and vice versa requires a little bit of fiddling. The reason is that the basic command line tools like date and base64 are very old on MacOS and mostly incompatible with the Linux world. Some tools are even called differently (e.g. md5sum is called md5).

Therefore if you want to make the remote script verification working (make sure nobody changed the remote script while using it), the following variables must be set:

# Use 'md5' command instead of 'md5sum'
export GBT__SOURCE_MD5_LOCAL='md5'
# Cut the 4th field from the output of 'md5'
export GBT__SOURCE_MD5_CUT_LOCAL='4'

If you don't want to use this feature, you can disable it in which case the above variables won't be required:

export GBT__SOURCE_SEC_DISABLE=1

When using the ExecTime car, the following variable must be set:

# Don't use nanoseconds in the 'ExecTime' car
export GBT__SOURCE_DATE_ARG='+%s'

For maximum compatibility with GBT, it's recommended to install GNU coreutils (brew install coreutils) and instead of the variable above use these:

# Use 'gdate' instead of 'date'
export GBT__SOURCE_DATE='gdate'
# Use 'gdate' instead of 'date' (only if you run GBT on a Mac)
export GBT__SOURCE_BASE64_LOCAL='gbase64'
# Use 'gdate' instead of 'date' (only if you are connection to Mac via SSH)
export GBT__SOURCE_BASE64='gbase64'

When connecting to MacOS from Linux using gbt_ssh and not using gbase64 on MacOS, the following variable must be set on Linux to make the Base64 decoding working on MacOS:

# Use 'base64 -D' to decode Base64 encoded text
export GBT__SOURCE_BASE64_DEC='-D'

Limitations

TODO

Contribution to the following is more than welcome:

  • Optimize generated escape sequence
    • Don't decorate empty string
    • Don't decorate child element with the same attributes used by the parent
  • Implement templating language to allow more dynamic configuration
    • Jinja2-like syntax
    • Should be able to refer variables from the local car
      • GBT_CAR_GIT_BG="{% 'red' if Status == '{{ StatusDirty }}' else 'light_gray' %}"
    • Should be able to refer ENV variables (e.g. env('HOME'))
    • Could be able to refer variables from another car
    • Advanced functionality via pipes (e.g. <expr> | substr(1,3))
  • Add support for GBT plugins
    • Load plugins with GBT_PLUGINS='mycar1:/path/to/mycar1.so;mycar2:/path/to/mycar2.so'
    • Load the plugin, read the Car symbol and assign the reference to the mycar1 in the carsFactory
  • Add more themes
