Focus is a minimal, fast and git-aware prompt for Mac terminal. It is spartan and efficient: neither plugins nor fancy configurations needed. It just works out of the box.

Every day I spend hours on Mac terminal. At first it was bash, then I switched to zsh, then again I migrate to Fish and finally I came back to the beloved zsh.

Focus is a minimal, blazing fast and git-aware zsh prompt. To start using it just check out the github repository anc copy the .zshrc file to your home directory.

I usually pair Focus with iTerm2 and Base16 Ocean theme (see picture above to have a preview).
