Stay Prompt while at the prompt

Once installed globally, clockmoji can be used to keep time on your bash/zsh prompt!

Example: Add this to your bash config (.bashrc) to prefix your prompt with the current time!

PS1='$(clockmoji)'\ $PS1; export PS1;

Or if you use the excellent pure prompt with zsh, add this to your .zshrc

PURE_PROMPT_SYMBOL='$(clockmoji)'\ ❯


I don't see any emoji on my command line, what should I do?

If you're a linux user, you may need to install a special font in order for them to work. Here are a few ways to do it:

  • Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install ttf-ancient-fonts
  • Fedora: yum install gdouros-symbola-fonts
  • Others: Download and install the Symbola 7.21 font from here
