# Configuration

To get started configuring starship, create the following file: ~/.config/starship.toml.

mkdir -p ~/.config && touch ~/.config/starship.toml

All configuration for starship is done in this TOML (opens new window) file:

# Inserts a blank line between shell prompts
add_newline = true

# Replace the "❯" symbol in the prompt with "➜"
[character]                            # The name of the module we are configuring is "character"
success_symbol = "[➜](bold green)"     # The "success_symbol" segment is being set to "➜" with the color "bold green"

# Disable the package module, hiding it from the prompt completely
[package]
disabled = true

You can change default configuration file location with STARSHIP_CONFIG environment variable:

export STARSHIP_CONFIG=~/.starship/config.toml

Equivalently in PowerShell (Windows) would be adding this line to your $PROFILE:

$ENV:STARSHIP_CONFIG = "$HOME\.starship\config.toml"

# Logging

By default starship logs warnings and errors into a file named ~/.cache/starship/session_${STARSHIP_SESSION_KEY}.log, where the session key is corresponding to a instance of your terminal. This, however can be changed using the STARSHIP_CACHE environment variable:

export STARSHIP_CACHE=~/.starship/cache

Equivalently in PowerShell (Windows) would be adding this line to your $PROFILE:

$ENV:STARSHIP_CACHE = "$HOME\AppData\Local\Temp"

# Terminology

Module: A component in the prompt giving information based on contextual information from your OS. For example, the "nodejs" module shows the version of Node.js that is currently installed on your computer, if your current directory is a Node.js project.

Variable: Smaller sub-components that contain information provided by the module. For example, the "version" variable in the "nodejs" module contains the current version of Node.js.

By convention, most modules have a prefix of default terminal color (e.g. via in "nodejs") and an empty space as a suffix.

# Format Strings

Format strings are the format that a module prints all its variables with. Most modules have an entry called format that configures the display format of the module. You can use texts, variables and text groups in a format string.

# Variable

A variable contains a $ symbol followed by the name of the variable. The name of a variable only contains letters, numbers and _.

For example:

  • $version is a format string with a variable named version.
  • $git_branch$git_commit is a format string with two variables named git_branch and git_commit.
  • $git_branch $git_commit has the two variables separated with a space.

# Text Group

A text group is made up of two different parts.

The first part, which is enclosed in a [], is a format string. You can add texts, variables, or even nested text groups in it.

In the second part, which is enclosed in a (), is a style string. This can be used style the first part.

For example:

  • [on](red bold) will print a string on with bold text colored red.
  • [⌘ $version](bold green) will print a symbol followed by the content of variable version, with bold text colored green.
  • [a [b](red) c](green) will print a b c with b red, and a and c green.

# Style Strings

Most modules in starship allow you to configure their display styles. This is done with an entry (usually called style) which is a string specifying the configuration. Here are some examples of style strings along with what they do. For details on the full syntax, consult the advanced config guide.

  • "fg:green bg:blue" sets green text on a blue background
  • "bg:blue fg:bright-green" sets bright green text on a blue background
  • "bold fg:27" sets bold text with ANSI color (opens new window) 27
  • "underline bg:#bf5700" sets underlined text on a burnt orange background
  • "bold italic fg:purple" sets bold italic purple text
  • "" explicitly disables all styling

Note that what styling looks like will be controlled by your terminal emulator. For example, some terminal emulators will brighten the colors instead of bolding text, and some color themes use the same values for the normal and bright colors. Also, to get italic text, your terminal must support italics.

# Conditional Format Strings

A conditional format string wrapped in ( and ) will not render if all variables inside are empty.

For example:

  • (@$region) will show nothing if the variable region is None or empty string, otherwise @ followed by the value of region.
  • (some text) will always show nothing since there are no variables wrapped in the braces.
  • When $all is a shortcut for \[$a$b\], ($all) will show nothing only if $a and $b are both None. This works the same as (\[$a$b\] ).

# Escapable characters

The following symbols have special usage in a format string. If you want to print the following symbols, you have to escape them with a backslash (\).

  • $
  • \
  • [
  • ]
  • (
  • )

Note that toml has its own escape syntax (opens new window). It is recommended to use a literal string ('') in your config. If you want to use a basic string (""), pay attention to escape the backslash \.

For example, when you want to print a $ symbol on a new line, the following configs for format are equivalent:

# with basic string
format = "\n\\$"

# with multiline basic string
format = """

\\$"""

# with literal string
format = '''

\$'''

# Command Duration

The cmd_duration module shows how long the last command took to execute. The module will be shown only if the command took longer than two seconds, or the min_time config value, if it exists.

Do not hook the DEBUG trap in Bash

If you are running Starship in bash, do not hook the DEBUG trap after running eval $(starship init $0), or this module will break.

Bash users who need preexec-like functionality can use rcaloras's bash_preexec framework (opens new window). Simply define the arrays preexec_functions and precmd_functions before running eval $(starship init $0), and then proceed as normal.

# Options

Option Default Description
min_time 2_000 Shortest duration to show time for (in milliseconds).
show_milliseconds false Show milliseconds in addition to seconds for the duration.

# Example

# ~/.config/starship.toml

[deno]
format = "via [🦕 $version](green bold) "

# Directory

The directory module shows the path to your current directory, truncated to three parent folders. Your directory will also be truncated to the root of the git repo that you're currently in.

When using the fish style pwd option, instead of hiding the path that is truncated, you will see a shortened name of each directory based on the number you enable for the option.

For example, given ~/Dev/Nix/nixpkgs/pkgs where nixpkgs is the repo root, and the option set to 1. You will now see ~/D/N/nixpkgs/pkgs, whereas before it would have been nixpkgs/pkgs.

# Options

Option Default Description
truncation_length 3 The number of parent folders that the current directory should be truncated to.
truncate_to_repo true Whether or not to truncate to the root of the git repo that you're currently in.
format "[$path]($style)[$read_only]($read_only_style) " The format for the module.
style "bold cyan" The style for the module.
disabled false Disables the directory module.
read_only "🔒" The symbol indicating current directory is read only.
read_only_style "red" The style for the read only symbol.
truncation_symbol "" The symbol to prefix to truncated paths. eg: "…/"
home_symbol "~" The symbol indicating home directory.
This module has a few advanced configuration options that control how the directory is displayed.
Advanced Option Default Description
substitutions A table of substitutions to be made to the path.
fish_style_pwd_dir_length 0 The number of characters to use when applying fish shell pwd path logic.
use_logical_path true If true render the logical path sourced from the shell via PWD or --logical-path. If false instead render the physical filesystem path with symlinks resolved.

substitutions allows you to define arbitrary replacements for literal strings that occur in the path, for example long network prefixes or development directories (i.e. Java). Note that this will disable the fish style PWD.

[directory.substitutions]
"/Volumes/network/path" = "/net"
"src/com/long/java/path" = "mypath"

fish_style_pwd_dir_length interacts with the standard truncation options in a way that can be surprising at first: if it's non-zero, the components of the path that would normally be truncated are instead displayed with that many characters. For example, the path /built/this/city/on/rock/and/roll, which would normally be displayed as as rock/and/roll, would be displayed as /b/t/c/o/rock/and/roll with fish_style_pwd_dir_length = 1--the path components that would normally be removed are displayed with a single character. For fish_style_pwd_dir_length = 2, it would be /bu/th/ci/on/rock/and/roll.

# Variables

Variable Example Description
path "D:/Projects" The current directory path
style* "black bold dimmed" Mirrors the value of option style

*: This variable can only be used as a part of a style string

# Example

# Dotnet

The dotnet module shows the relevant version of the .NET Core SDK (opens new window) for the current directory. If the SDK has been pinned in the current directory, the pinned version is shown. Otherwise the module shows the latest installed version of the SDK.

By default this module will only be shown in your prompt when one or more of the following files are present in the current directory:

  • global.json
  • project.json
  • Directory.Build.props
  • Directory.Build.targets
  • Packages.props
  • *.csproj
  • *.fsproj
  • *.xproj

You'll also need the .NET Core SDK installed in order to use it correctly.

Internally, this module uses its own mechanism for version detection. Typically it is twice as fast as running dotnet --version, but it may show an incorrect version if your .NET project has an unusual directory layout. If accuracy is more important than speed, you can disable the mechanism by setting heuristic = false in the module options.

The module will also show the Target Framework Moniker (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/standard/frameworks#supported-target-framework-versions (opens new window)) when there is a csproj file in the current directory.

# Regex Matching

Additional to simple aliasing, context_aliases also supports extended matching and renaming using regular expressions.

The regular expression must match on the entire kube context, capture groups can be referenced using $name and $N in the replacement. This is more explained in the regex crate (opens new window) documentation.

Long and automatically generated cluster names can be identified and shortened using regular expressions:

[kubernetes.context_aliases]
# OpenShift contexts carry the namespace and user in the kube context: `namespace/name/user`:
".*/openshift-cluster/.*" = "openshift"
# Or better, to rename every OpenShift cluster at once:
".*/(?P<cluster>[\\w-]+)/.*" = "$cluster"

# Contexts from GKE, AWS and other cloud providers usually carry additional information, like the region/zone.
# The following entry matches on the GKE format (`gke_projectname_zone_cluster-name`)
# and renames every matching kube context into a more readable format (`gke-cluster-name`):
"gke_.*_(?P<cluster>[\\w-]+)" = "gke-$cluster"

TIP

The python_binary variable accepts either a string or a list of strings. Starship will try executing each binary until it gets a result. Note you can only change the binary that Starship executes to get the version of Python not the arguments that are used.

The default values and order for python_binary was chosen to first identify the Python version in a virtualenv/conda environments (which currently still add a python, no matter if it points to python3 or python2). This has the side effect that if you still have a system Python 2 installed, it may be picked up before any Python 3 (at least on Linux Distros that always symlink /usr/bin/python to Python 2). If you do not work with Python 2 anymore but cannot remove the system Python 2, changing this to "python3" will hide any Python version 2, see example below.

The order in which custom modules are shown can be individually set by including ${custom.foo} in the top level format (as it includes a dot, you need to use ${...}). By default, the custom module will simply show all custom modules in the order they were defined.

TIP

Issue #1252 (opens new window) contains examples of custom modules. If you have an interesting example not covered there, feel free to share it there!

# Options

Option Default Description
command The command whose output should be printed. The command will be passed on stdin to the shell.
when A shell command used as a condition to show the module. The module will be shown if the command returns a 0 status code.
shell See below
description "<custom module>" The description of the module that is shown when running starship explain.
files [] The files that will be searched in the working directory for a match.
directories [] The directories that will be searched in the working directory for a match.
extensions [] The extensions that will be searched in the working directory for a match.
symbol "" The symbol used before displaying the command output.
style "bold green" The style for the module.
format "[$symbol($output )]($style)" The format for the module.
disabled false Disables this custom module.
os Operating System name on which the module will be shown (unix, linux, macos, windows, ... ) See possible values (opens new window).

# Variables

Variable Description
output The output of shell command in shell
symbol Mirrors the value of option symbol
style* Mirrors the value of option style

*: This variable can only be used as a part of a style string

# Custom command shell

shell accepts a non-empty list of strings, where:

  • The first string is the path to the shell to use to execute the command.
  • Other following arguments are passed to the shell.

If unset, it will fallback to STARSHIP_SHELL and then to "sh" on Linux, and "cmd /C" on Windows.

The command will be passed in on stdin.

If shell is not given or only contains one element and Starship detects PowerShell will be used, the following arguments will automatically be added: -NoProfile -Command -. This behavior can be avoided by explicitly passing arguments to the shell, e.g.

shell = ["pwsh", "-Command", "-"]

Make sure your custom shell configuration exits gracefully

If you set a custom command, make sure that the default Shell used by starship will properly execute the command with a graceful exit (via the shell option).

For example, PowerShell requires the -Command parameter to execute a one liner. Omitting this parameter might throw starship into a recursive loop where the shell might try to load a full profile environment with starship itself again and hence re-execute the custom command, getting into a never ending loop.

Parameters similar to -NoProfile in PowerShell are recommended for other shells as well to avoid extra loading time of a custom profile on every starship invocation.

Automatic detection of shells and proper parameters addition are currently implemented, but it's possible that not all shells are covered. Please open an issue (opens new window) with shell details and starship configuration if you hit such scenario.

# Example

# ~/.config/starship.toml

[custom.foo]
command = "echo foo"  # shows output of command
files = ["foo"]       # can specify filters
when = """ test "$HOME" == "$PWD" """
format = " transcending [$output]($style)"

[custom.time]
command = "time /T"
files = ["*.pst"]
shell = ["pwsh.exe", "-NoProfile", "-Command", "-"]
