joemaller / PS1 Color Functions for Shell
Last active Mar 9, 2018
A set of simple color functions to help customize the shell's $PS1 prompt. These wrap the nasty color and background escape codes into more humane functions. Due to shell string escaping oddness, these must be used with `PROMPT_COMMAND` instead of directly in PS1. A complete git-aware .bashrc prompt is here:…

# This:
# PROMPT_COMMAND='PS1="\e[32;1m\]\u@\[\e[35;1m\]\H \[\e[0m\]\w]\$ "''
# Can be more clearly written as:
# PROMPT_COMMAND='PS1="$(DARK_GREEN \\u@)$(PURPLE \\H) \w]\$ "''

joemaller / array_sortByKey.php
Created Jan 22, 2013
This works, but not well enough. Needs better handling of undefined values and arranging things in fixed lengths. For example, if there three items and only one has a sort key, but it's sort key asks to be in the second place, then the item specifying spot two should get spot two and all the undefined items should maintain order around it. Funda…
