Configuration

You can configure the prefix and/or suffix to be showed in tab title, besides the current folder.

DISABLE

You can disable the plugin adding

ZSH_TAB_TITLE_DISABLE_AUTO_TITLE=true

CURRENT FOLDER

You can display in the tab title, just the last folder you are in. So for example, if you are at /home/user/zsh-tab-title, the tab will only display zsh-tab-title. The default behavior, it will show the complete path, truncated at 20 chars. To enable current folder only, do:

ZSH_TAB_TITLE_ONLY_FOLDER=true

CONCAT FOLDER AND PROCESS

When executing a command, it is showed in the tab title. You can setup to concatenate the current folder to it, so it can display, for example, zsh-tab-title:ls, when doing a ls in /home/user/zsh-tab-title. To enable concat folder and process, do:

ZSH_TAB_TITLE_CONCAT_FOLDER_PROCESS=true

FULL COMMAND

Enable to show the full command being run with it's arguments in the tab title. For example, nano .zshrc will show nano .zshrc instead of just nano. Default is to display only the command without it's arguments.

ZSH_TAB_TITLE_ENABLE_FULL_COMMAND=true

PREFIX

The prefix can be configured using the variable ZSH_TAB_TITLE_PREFIX and it will be added before the current folder, in tab title. For example:

ZSH_TAB_TITLE_PREFIX='$USER@$HOST - '

By default, if no value is informed, it is used the value %m@%n: which will show the user name and computer name, separated by @. For example: trystan2k@MyPC: /home/trystan2k. This default value can be disabled if variable ZSH_TAB_TITLE_DEFAULT_DISABLE_PREFIX is set to try. For example:

ZSH_TAB_TITLE_DEFAULT_DISABLE_PREFIX=true

SUFFIX

The suffix can be configured using the variable ZSH_TAB_TITLE_SUFFIX and it will be added after the current folder, in tab title. For example:

ZSH_TAB_TITLE_SUFFIX='- $USER'

This variable has no default value, so if nothing is informed, no suffix is added

ADDITIONAL TERMS

By default the tab title is set for iTerm, Hyper, and where $TERM is set to one of cygwin,xterm*,putty*,rxvt*,ansi,screen*,tmux* Additional $TERMS to set the tab title for can be configured with the variable ZSH_TAB_TITLE_ADDITIONAL_TERMS. For example:

ZSH_TAB_TITLE_ADDITIONAL_TERMS='alacritty|kitty|foot'

This variable has no default value, so if nothing is informed, no suffix is added
