To change the bash prompt on your AWS EC2 instance from the default of

[ec2-user@ip-10-1-1-1 ~]$

to

ec2-user@ec2-name /data/cool-app (development=)
└─►

Add as temp_bash_profile.sh

Note, ''' = '

Update ec2_name="ec2name" to the name of your ec2 ie super-cool-service

vim temp_bash_profile.sh

Append to existing bash profile
using sed

sed -i '/# User specific environment and startup programs/ r temp_bash_profile.sh' ~/.bash_profile

or edit and add to the end

vim ~/.bash_profile

Test and see results

source ~/.bash_profile

ec2-user@ec2-name /data/cool-app (development=)
