Another solution would be to make a very simple change through a framework such as
oh-my-zsh, as explained in this question:
If you use the oh-my-zsh framework for instance, depending on the theme you chose to use, you'd only have to replace the
%c character with
%~. The reason being that
%c shows the current folder, while
%~ shows the full path from the root.
The file where you'd want to make the change would be something like:
In my case, same as the linked question, I've selected the robbyrussell theme, so the file I had to modify was:
For safety, you can also copy the original
PROMPT= line at the end of
~/.zshrc before customising your theme.
