I have a question about the Fish (Friendly Interactive SHell), so I hope somebody can help me out.
Basically I'd like to customize the fish_greeting message. I can easily get it to say anything I'd like, but I'm having problems setting colors for different lines. Please note that I found some instructions from other sites which said to put this inside of
config.fish, rather than in
/functions/fish_greeting. I couldn't tell you why, but I followed those instructions nevertheless.
This copy of the command I've been working on should make what I just said more clear:
### Set Fish_Greeting to... ### set fish_greeting ' (set_color green) " Hi Ev! " (set_color blue) " Welcome to the Terminal! " '
I'm obviously doing it wrong because when I type
fish to test it out, I'm met with:
(set_color green) " Hi Ev! " (set_color blue) " Welcome to the Terminal! "
I know that looks like I've formatted something wrong here, but I assure you, those extra empty lines are shown on the terminal.
Does anybody know of a way I could do this easily? Is this something that's much too complicated for what its worth?
Thanks a lot!
