Due to limitations (or not having found a way just yet), this feature only works in
cmd (as of clink version v1.2.46) for
the time being.
Tooltips are segments that are rendered as a right-aligned prompt while you're typing certain keywords.
They behave similarly to the other segments when it comes to how and when they are shown so you can tweak
them to act and look like you want. The key difference is that they can be invoked using
tips which are the
commands you are typing. Due to the possibility of the use of an alias, you can define for which keyword
the segment should be rendered.
You need to extend or create a custom theme with your tooltips. For example:
This configuration will render a right-aligned git segment when you type
g followed by a space. Keep in mind that
this is a blocking call, meaning that if the segment renders slow, you can't type until it's visible. Optimizations in this space
are being explored.
