Getting patched fonts for a powerline in the terminal can be quite an adventure. I almost gave up on it, but now that I’ve figured it out it seems extremely obvious.
# pip install --user powerline-status # brew install fontforge --with-python git clone https://github.com/powerline/fonts.git cd fonts ./install.sh
Most importantly, select the font with the word
powerline in the name in the preferences option of your terminal.
