This package provides some themes of Emacs Shell (Eshell) prompt.


In Eshell, type use-theme to list and preview available themes, then type use-theme name to choose a theme.


You can also choose a theme in your init file by using eshell-git-prompt-use-theme, then Eshell will use theme at the startup. For example, put the following in you init file

(eshell-git-prompt-use-theme 'powerline)


(Just in case some theme breaks your Eshell)

To recover the Eshell default prompt, type

$ use-theme default

or M-x eshell-git-prompt-use-theme RET default RET.

How does this package work?

You can customize Eshell’s prompt via something like the following

(setq eshell-prompt-function (lambda () "A simple prompt." "$ ")
      eshell-prompt-regexp    "^$ ")

this package uses the same way.
