Wow! nice! Any chance we can reproduce this on bash?

Nvm, this was just the nudge I need to switch to zsh.

Hmm, can't quite reproduce this using vcs_info (see man zshcontrib), seems it considers untracked files to not be unstaged and it doesn't support tags. It does distinguish between staged and unstaged changes though.

autoload -Uz vcs_info

zstyle ':vcs_info:*:prompt:*'     check-for-changes true
zstyle ':vcs_info:*:prompt:*'     stagedstr         "%{$fg[green]%}*%{$reset_color%}"
zstyle ':vcs_info:*:prompt:*'     unstagedstr       "%{$fg[red]%}*%{$reset_color%}"
zstyle ':vcs_info:*:prompt:*'     branchformat      "%r"
zstyle ':vcs_info:*:prompt:*'     formats           "%u%c%{$fg[green]%}[%b]%{$reset_color%}"
zstyle ':vcs_info:*:prompt:*'     nvcsformats       ""

Ran into an issue with this where I needed to source from within a directory to get git info about it. That info would then follow me around regardless of what directory I was in.

Makes sense, but unworkable for me as a oh-my-zsh-free git prompt.
