Display git branch in bash prompt
View .bashrc
# If you work with git, you've probably had that nagging sensation of not knowing what branch you are on. Worry no longer!
export PS1="\\w:\$(git branch 2>/dev/null | grep '^*' | colrm 1 2)\$ "
# This will change your prompt to display not only your working directory but also your current git branch, if you have one. Pretty nifty!
# ~/code/web:beta_directory$ git checkout master
# Switched to branch "master"
# ~/code/web:master$ git checkout beta_directory
# Switched to branch "beta_directory"
You can’t perform that action at this time.
