Which shells are supported?

Supported (animation plays) Prompt appears before animation Prompt command support Update checking
Fish (no syntax highlighing) Untested
Note that if you use a shell configuration that is drastically different than the default, then your mileage may vary. Please report ALL bugs, regardless of your configuration. The goal is to support all configurations.

Interested? Here's how to set it up on your tilde.club account!

Note that all examples shown below use ~sebastian/bin/motd-*. I strongly recommend that for security reasons you copy the file into your own home directory and run a local copy instead of just trusting my copy. To do this, run cp ~sebastian/bin/motd-shell ~/bin, replacing motd-shell with the script corresponding to the shell that you use. Although I know that I'm not malicious, you don't, so you shouldn't take my word for it.

Running it once:

Setting it up permanently:

  1. Run touch ~/.hushlogin to silence the old official prompt (if you haven't already).
  2. Put the code for running the script at the bottom of your ~/.profile. You can find the commands for that above under "Running it once". If your shell doesn't read .profile, you may need to put it in a shell-specific profile (e.g. Bash users should use ~/.bash_profile). Fish users should need to put status --is-login; and motd-fish in ~/.config/fish/config.fish. Ensure that the motd script runs AFTER the PS1 variable has been set. DO NOT put the script from my home directory into your profile. Copy the script into your home directory and run it from there instead. It's a pretty terrible idea to let another user have control of a script that runs everytime you log in.
  3. Test if it works by logging out of the ssh/mosh session and logging back in.

How do I get rid of the annoying update check? I don't want to update!!

Passing --no-update-check as a flag to the script will suppress update checking messages on Bash and Zsh. Using Bash as an example, you'd run ~sebastian/bin/motd-bash "$PS1" --no-update-check. The --no-update-check flag must be the last argument passed to the program. You can also manually modify the script and comment out the part of the code in charge of update checking if you really want.
