NAME

fish_prompt -- define the appearance of the command line prompt

    Synopsis

function fish_prompt ... end

    Description

By defining the fish_prompt function, the user can choose a custom prompt. The fish_prompt function is executed when the prompt is to be shown, and the output is used as a prompt.

The exit status of commands within fish_prompt will not modify the value of $status outside of the fish_prompt function.

fish ships with a number of example prompts that can be chosen with the fish_config command.

    Example

A simple prompt:

function fish_prompt -d ’Write out the prompt’ printf ’s%ssss> ’ (whoami) (hostname | cut -d . -f 1) \ (set_color $fish_color_cwd) (prompt_pwd) (set_color normal) end
