Hyperzsh

Hyperzsh is a z shell theme designed to complement a git-focused workflow. It gives you a comprehensive overview of the branch you're working on and the status of your repository throughout the development process without cluttering your terminal.

It currently shows (in order of the prompt):

  • Current working directory
  • Git branch
  • Current SHA (optional)
  • Exit code of last command
  • Time since last commit
  • Git status
  • Background Jobs

Installation

For antigen users

  1. Add antigen bundle tylerreckart/hyperzsh to your .zshrc. Antigen will clone and load the hyperzsh repository automaticall the next time you start a zsh session.

For oh-my-zsh users

If you're using oh-my-zsh, follow these steps to install hyperzsh:

  1. mkdir $ZSH_CUSTOM/themes You can skip this command if the directory exists already
  2. wget -O $ZSH_CUSTOM/themes/hyperzsh.zsh-theme https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tylerreckart/hyperzsh/master/hyperzsh.zsh-theme
  3. vim ~/.zshrc
  4. Set ZSH_THEME="current_theme" to ZSH_THEME="hyperzsh"

For Zgen users

  1. Add zgen load tylerreckart/hyperzsh to your .zshrc with your other zgen load statements.
    zgen save and zgen will automaticall handle cloning the repository for you.

Options

Hyperzsh is highly configurable. It was build to seamlessly integrate git into my workflow, but my choices may not work for you. Everything from the icons to colors are customizable to whatever you want. Itching to slap some emoji in there? Go for it!

Show current SHA

If you'd like to view your branch's current SHA, there's already support baked into the theme. All you have to do is edit hyperzsh.zsh-theme and un-comment the Prompt with SHA and ensure that the default prompt gets commented out or removed.

# The prompt
# PROMPT='$(_user_host)$(_python_venv)%{$fg[cyan]%}%c $(git_prompt_info)%{$reset_color%}$(git_prompt_short_sha)%{$fg[magenta]%}$(_git_time_since_commit)$(git_prompt_status)${_return_status}➜ '

# Prompt with SHA
PROMPT='$(_user_host)$(_python_venv)%{$fg[cyan]%}%c $(git_prompt_info)%{$reset_color%}$(git_prompt_short_sha)%{$fg[magenta]%}$(_git_time_since_commit)$(git_prompt_status)${_return_status}➜ '
