Oh My Posh
The snappy and most customisable cross platform/shell prompt renderer.
The installer will automatically install the default profile ("jandedobbeleer") into /etc/bash_completion.d/oh-my-posh. To change this, see https://ohmyposh.dev/docs/installation/customize
You also need a compatible font like Cascaydia Cove.
