malcolmt / Malcolm's $PS1 prompt
Created Sep 17, 2010
People keep asking about my fancy bash prompt (I've been using it since the mid-90's). So, here it is.
View Malcolm's $PS1 prompt
.-(malcolm@djelibeybi 15:19:34) ~
`--> echo $PS1
\n\[\033[35m\].-(\[\033[33m\]\u@\h \[\033[36m\]\t\[\033[35m\]) \[\033[0m\]\w\n\[\033[35m\]\`-->\[\033[0m\]
I should note that in my .bashrc file, I enter the information like this:
# My fancy two-line, colored prompt
export PS1="\n\[$e[35m\].-(\[$e[33m\]\u@\h \[$e[36m\]\t\[$e[35m\])\[$e[0m\]\w\n\[$e[35m\]\\\`-->\[$e[0m\] "
You can’t perform that action at this time.
