The dotmatrix theme is basically the look of "powerline", but done right on the user experience side. The main idea is to highlight what's important, instead of displaying too many things because fancy colors everywhere are fun.
To achieve that, the dotmatrix theme has been very carefully designed:
- it uses four modules: host/path, machine state, environment, version control.
- it uses a consistent visual grammar (using 3 separators and 3 colors).
- it follows good practices for color blindness.
The full rendering of the modules is summarized in the design document. I've used this prompt for months and it seems ready for a beta release.
The current code uses a similar approach to the one used for the powerline theme, but needs refactoring.
