I should’ve mentioned how you can fix it. The simplest fix is to add your
git aliases to the linked code. This, however, won’t fix all corner cases.
It might be possible to expand aliases there but it still won’t for
functions and scripts that call git.

An alternative solution is to call vcs_info from precmd hook on every
prompt. This will be correct but slow.

To solve the performance problem you can replace vcs_info with gitstatus
<https://github.com/romkatv/gitstatus>, which is over 10x faster. There is
an example
you can follow.

Powerlevel10k <https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k> provides a turnkey
solution. It’s already integrated with gitstatus, it’s very fast, and very
flexible. You can configure Powerlevel10k to look like your current scheme,
if you like.
