hg-prompt adds an 'hg prompt' command to Mercurial for viewing repository information. It's designed to be used in a shell prompt.
hg-prompt requires Python 2.5+ and (obviously) Mercurial.
Clone the repository:
$ hg clone http://bitbucket.org/sjl/hg-prompt/
Edit the [extensions] section in your ~/.hgrc file:
[extensions] prompt = (path to)/hg-prompt/prompt.py
The documentation for hg-prompt is at the [project page][project]. There's a [Quick Start guide][quickstart], [Full Usage Guide][usage], [Keyword List][keywords], and a few other things there.
The documentation is stored in the docs/ directory of the repository if you prefer to read it offline.

Questions, Comments, Suggestions
The code was kind of thrown together in a few nights after I got tired of chaining three or four hg runs together to get what I wanted. I'm sure it's not perfect, so if you've got a way to improve it please add an issue and let me know.
Patches are also welcome!
