Currently, I use iTerm on OS X. My terminal looks something along these lines:
I came across this picture of a terminal setup on GitHub, and I wanted to imitate it:
Specifically, I wanted to change the padding/margin along the left side/bottom side of the window. While the picture in question appears to utilize OSX's default Terminal, I'm hoping it can be done in iTerm as well, although an OSX Terminal-specific solution would work too.
I've tried looking through iTerm and OSX Terminal's preferences (especially under the "Window" section on iTerm, but I have looked elsewhere), and I have yet to find an option for adjusting where the characters start along the left side.
I've also tried to implement this programmatically in Bash:
bash -l | sed 's/^/ /'
This seems to work fairly well, although it only indents program output, not my prompt line (and I'm having trouble setting such a piped command as my login shell).
Also, it only adjusts
stderr and piping it with
bash -l 2>&1 simply hides all of Bash's output altogether.
Have I just overlooked some setting in iTerm/OSX Terminal? Is there any other way to set an "inner text area" within the Terminal window (i.e. set padding along the sides)?
