#!/bin/bash
#
# DESCRIPTION:
#
# Set the bash prompt according to:
# * the active virtualenv
# * the branch/status of the current git repository
# * the return value of the previous command

# your prompts.
#
# USAGE:
#
# 1. Save this file as ~/.bash_prompt
# 2. Add the following line to the end of your ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile:
# . ~/.bash_prompt
#
# LINEAGE:
#
# Based on work by woods
