Liquidprompt is packaged for many operating systems, though the latest version in those repositories is not always up to date.
pacman -S liquidprompt
… and Debian derivatives.
apt-get install liquidprompt
A small script,
liquidprompt_activate (not to be confused with
lp_activate()) is included to ease activation of the prompt, which can be
used instead of the Shell Installation instructions.
This will set the required environment:
~/.zshrcare modified to load Liquidprompt at startup.
If no previous
~/.config/liquidpromptrcfile exists, it will be created.
So, to get Liquidprompt working simply run:
liquidprompt_activate source ~/.bashrc # or ~/.zshrc
Be aware that multiple invocations of the
liquidprompt_activate command may
brew install liquidprompt
nix-env -i liquidprompt
