📟 Minimal Terminal Prompt

A clean PS1 bash prompt, showing user, host, pathname and git status

Bash Installation

Clone and cd into the repo, then copy the desired PS1 .sh file contents into your ~/.bashrc. Then just reload your bash profile (either restart your cmd, or run the source command)

git clone https://github.com/Lissy93/minimal-terminal-prompt.git

cd minimal-terminal-prompt

cat minimal-terminal-prompt.sh  >> ~/.bashrc

source ~/.bashrc

Done 😎

Note, for Mac OS X: Because by default OS X starts a login session first, the file ~/.bash_profile can be used in place of ~/.bashrc. Read more about this on this GNU Documentation Article.

References and Further Reading: All the information you could ever want to know about customising your bash PS1 prompt can be found on this detailed Linux Documentation and how-to guide, by Giles Orr: TLDP: Bash Prompt How-To

ZSH Installation

To install this theme for use in Oh-My-Zsh, clone this repository into your OMZ custom/themes directory.

$ git clone https://github.com/Lissy93/minimal-terminal-prompt.git ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/themes

Done 😎
