If you are using a plugin manager, see alternative installation options.
Restart zsh. Configuration wizard will start automatically. If it doesn't, type
p10k configure. Choose "Pure" style when asked.
Powerlevel10k with Pure style is faster than plain Pure and gives you access to extra features.
- Powerlevel10k is much faster at fetching Git status. This can make a difference if you are working in a large Git repository, on a slow machine, or on Windows.
- If you enable Instant Prompt in the configuration wizard, zsh will start instantly even if your
~/.zshrcis sourcing dozens of plugins. Powerlevel10k is effectively reducing zsh startup time while Pure is increasing it.
- If you enable Transient Prompt in the configuration wizard, prompt will be automatically trimmed down when accepting a command. See demo.
- Powerlevel10k is almost infinitely configurable, which is evidenced by its ability to emulate Pure given a suitable set of configuration options. When using Powerlevel10k, you can easily add extra information to the prompt, configure right prompt or completely change your shell style.
