Chapter: Tips and fixing mistakes
Lecture: Tip: Oh my posh
0:00 If you're a Windows user, you may have been feeling a little left out with
0:03 that. OhMy Zshell conversation we just had.
0:06 But don't worry because OhMyPosh and Power Shell to the rescue over here on
0:12 our Windows machine. If when you are working on the terminal or do you call
0:17 it the command prompt? If it looks like this,
0:21 you need even more help than the folks over on Mac Os because this it's even
0:27 less far down the line. Less advanced.
0:29 Less powerful than the built in bash into Mac Os.
0:34 But that's not what I use when I'm on Windows.
0:36 Oh no, I use the new Microsoft terminal because guess what?
0:41 It's way better than the old school command prompt.
0:45 And look at this. Look at this power shell stuff we got going on right
0:49 here. So we're using the new,
0:52 not the built in but the new power shell that you can get off of.
0:56 Github from Microsoft, which has a bunch of cool features.
0:59 And OhMyPosh gives us this great prompt.
1:03 That is exactly what we have over on our Mac Os as well as you will
1:09 see. So we can come over to some kind of github repo for example
1:14 here we are in our rps and if we make some changes here and now
1:23 we have a new file, you can see that we even have it indicating just
1:28 like we've seen before. One file has changed one file has been edited and needs
1:33 to be dealt with and git we're on the main branch.
1:37 Much, much nicer experience here.
1:39 So highly recommend that you check out.
1:43 Oh My Posh, if you're over here on Windows,
1:46 So Microsoft terminal. Oh, my posh,
1:50 new power Shell and you get a much,
1:53 much better, much more git friendly, developer friendly experience.
