This guide is for usage inside PowerShell only. If you plan to use Oh my Posh inside other shells as well, have a look at the platform specific install instructions.
If you wish to install for all users in a linux environment, you will need to install from an elevated PowerShell session. You will also need to import the module one time from the elevated session in order to set the executable permissions correctly.
To display every available theme in the current directory, use the following cmdlet.
$PROFILE in your preferred PowerShell version and add the following line. Autocompletion is available so it will loop
through all available themes.
Once added, reload your profile for the changes to take effect.
At this point you're good to go. The
jandedobbeleer.omp.json theme displays most common use-cases
in your prompt so 9/10 you'll be more than happy with it. However, if you want to explore additional
functionality, going through the additional steps below will help you get started.
We downloaded all the themes and set
jandedobbeleer.omp.json as the one to use.
However, there are a lot more to be discovered and maybe there are some you like better.
Maybe there's a theme you like, but you don't fancy the colors. Or, maybe there's a segment you want to tweak/add, or replace some of the icons with a different one. Whatever the case, read through all available options first, by starting with the configuration guide.
You can output the current theme to the format you like (
toml) which can be used to tweak
and store as your custom theme.
Once you're done editing, adjust your
$PROFILE to use your newly created theme.
