Installing `hg-prompt` requires [Python][] 2.5+ and (obviously) Mercurial.


First, clone the repository:

    $ hg clone

Edit the `[extensions]` section in your `~/.hgrc` file:

    prompt = (path to)/

Make sure everything is working:

    $ hg prompt 'test'

Take a look at the [Quick Start][] guide to learn how to put some useful
information into your shell prompt.
