GPL License Fish Shell Version Oh My Fish Framework


A plugin for Oh My Fish.

Display feedback and diagnostic messages - that is, messages that are printed to stderr and, as such, are not part of s program's output - stylized through control characters. Text placed between pipe characters, i.e. |, will be displayed in bold. Messages come in the following flavors:

  • win, a confirmation message.

  • wrn, a warning message.

  • err, an error message. It is a good practice to prefix your error message with the name of the command that failed, such as command: error message.

  • dim, a dimmed message. Commonly used to point out some activity in the background.

  • reg, a regular message.

Example Usage

  • -o, overwrite current line.

  • -n, do not output a newline.

  • -s, do not separate arguments with spaces.

  • -E, disable interpretation of backslash escapes (default).

  • -e, enable interpretation of backslash escapes.

  • \b, backspace.

  • \c, produce no further output.
