abbreviated pwd for oh-my-zsh

Functionality of the theme_title_use_abbreviated_path parameter from some oh-my-fish themes

Displays the current path with all but the last directory shortened to the first letter

Replaces $HOME with ~


copy .abbr_pwd to $HOME then source it from your .zshrc

source $HOME/.abbr_pwd

You can use my own theme copy if agnoster suits you, but if not you can edit your theme of choice in $HOME/.oh-my-zsh/themes by finding the promptdir() method and modifying the contents to contain $(felixpwdabbr) as you wish. For agnoster it was as easy as replacing '%~' with $(felixpwd_abbr).
