Most of my day I have my screen in split view: an editor on the left, and a shell on the right. To make my precious work hours as effective and efficient as possible, both have to be ergonomic.

The image above displays the agnoster theme for zsh. The latter is an awesome replacement for bash. With the gorgeous agnoster theme a lot of pain I had with the bash is gone.

  • a beautiful prompt
  • dynamic display of additional information, like
  • git repository status
