Adding Predictive IntelliSense to my Windows Terminal PowerShell Prompt with PSReadline
I've long said You should be customizing your PowerShell Prompt with PSReadLine. Go to your PowerShell prompt, and
Install-Module PSReadLine -AllowPrerelease -Force
Then, after running code $profile or nodepad $profile, add
Sure, but next, add these:
Set-PSReadLineOption -PredictionSource History
Set-PSReadLineOption -PredictionViewStyle ListView
Set-PSReadLineOption -EditMode Windows
This means that PSReadLine (and hence, your prompt in general) will use your prompt history to make predictions on what you want to see next. These predictions can be on one line in light gray (full details on Jason's blog) but I like them to pop down in a ANSI style ListView. Then you can edit them with up and down arrows (or Emacs or VI soon).
I'm loving PSReadLine an will be doing a video on setting up your best prompt soon.
