adventures into the land of the command line

my groovy hyper setup

Hyper is ooosum! This is how I set up mine…

The custom PS1:

vim ~/.bash_profile

export PS1=$'\xe2\x96\xb2 \[email protected]\h:\w \[\e[0;38;5;208m\]\xe2\x98\x85\[\e[0m\] \[$(tput sgr0)\]'

The plugins:

npm install -g vtop
npm install -g hyperpower
npm install -g hyper-statusline
npm install -g hyper-tabs-enhanced
npm install -g hyper-dark-scrollbar
npm install -g hyperterm-alternatescroll
npm install -g hypergravity

The config:

cat ~/.hyper.js
