zsh prompt changes

To continue the idea to make it easier to record my steps, did some changes to the clean oh-my-zsh theme. For this, I made a copy of the theme file /home/%username%/.oh-my-zsh/themes/clean2.zsh-theme, and using zsh: 13 Prompt Expansion added the following:

  • history event number at the end of the prompt, after the time (RPROMPT='%*/%!')
  • Added the last N elements in the path while leaving tilde contraction. (PROMPT='%{$fg[$NCOLOR]%}%B%n%b%{$reset_color%}:%{$fg[blue]%}%B%5c/%b%{$reset_color%} $(git_prompt_info)%(!.#.$) ', the number 5 represents the number of directories to show.)

Now the prompt looks like this:

%username%:~/o/dtb/assets/pics/ (master✗) $                                                             16:14:10/10548

timewarrior :quarter

Timewarrior has many interesting hints, I always missed something with now and previous month - of course :quarter exists.
