Customization of wish is done using a gINIe file (format specific to wish)
which is an extended INI config file. The default location for config file is
~/.config/wish/config.gie. The default config file is automatically copied

Multiple config files can be supplied as an array to
Comments start with a

Key value pairs are in the form of
key = value. Keys cannot have whitespaces
= in them. Values can have any character as part of them. Surrounding
spaces in values are stripped away. To keep surrounding spaces as a part of
the value. Although, keys are case-sensitive in gINIe, wish treats them case-
Block names are enclosed in
[core]). Block names are case
sensitive. All key value pairs after a block starts and before the next block
begins are considered a part of that block. All key value pairs must be in a
core: Core block configures Wish itself. Available keys are:
auto_newline: Automatically add a newline if last line of output doesn't end in newline. (0 to disable, 1 to enable)
theme: Wish theme.
powerline: Enable / Disable powerline. (0 to disable, 1 to enable)
plugin: Adds a plugin to the section the block is added to. All config for that plugin goes there. Check wiki for details on available keys for plugins. The key "name" defines the plugin to use. Plugin blocks outside a section are ignored.
Section names are enclosed in
|left|). All blocks after a section
starts and before the next section begins are considered a part of that
section. Blocks don't necessarily need to be in a section.
Available sections are
right for left prompt and right prompt
Sample config file
[core] auto_newline = 1 powerline = 1 theme = rgb_gradient |left| [plugin] name = path_powerline max_perc = 50 [plugin] name = python_venv [plugin] name = newline [plugin] name = custom_text text = ' λ ' [plugin] name = space |right| [plugin] name = date format = %a %b %H:%M [plugin] name = hostname
Which results in the following prompt
