A Pure-inspired prompt for fish shell. It’s very similar to Pure, but not identical—it’s not intended to have feature parity.

  • A clean, beautiful, and minimal prompt
  • The perfect prompt character. Seriously. Sindre Sorhus went through the entire unicode range to find it. All other prompt characters bow before this prompt character. ❤️
  • Takes up two lines with a blank space preceding it. At first I thought this was weird but now I can’t imagine going back.
  • Shows the working directory
  • Shows the current git branch or revision
  • Shows up/down arrows if you have unpushed/unpulled commits
  • The prompt character turns red if the last command’s exit status is 1


fish doesn’t have any kind of plugin system so you just have to download the file and save it as ~/.config/fish/functions/fish_prompt.fish.

Here’s a one-liner you can run.

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/brandonweiss/pure.fish/master/fish_prompt.fish > ~/.config/fish/functions/fish_prompt.fish

To make it easier to update you can clone this repo and then symlink the prompt into place.

git clone https://github.com/brandonweiss/pure.fish.git
ln -s ./pure.fish/fish_prompt.fish ~/.config/fish/functions/fish_prompt.fish


You can of course use any terminal theme you like, but I think it looks best with Tomorrow Night Eighties and Droid Sans Mono in 15pt (with anti-aliasing on).
