A long, two-lines fishshell prompt theme.


I was tired of issues with patched fonts like Powerline so I crafted this prompt that relies on Unicode glyphs only.


Use fisher:

fisher add stefanmaric/bigfish

If you are interested in manual installation, please open an issue asking for help and I will give you instructions and then update this README.
