Emoji's, the bash prompt and Fridays
I work with a bash prompt all day on a Mac, playing with docker and git, so it is nice to have a prompt that is a bit more interesting,
You can fairly easily include emoji's and some colour escape codes (google bash prompt color escape codes) to liven things up.
The following lives in my .bash_profile
export PS1='\[\033[38;5;220m\]$(__git_ps1)\[$(tput sgr0)\]\n\w 🍏\$ ' if [ "$(date +%a)" = "Fri" ]; then export PS1='\[\033[38;5;220m\]$(__git_ps1)\[$(tput sgr0)\]\n\w 🍺\$ ' fi
Mine is a little special on Fridays, being a beer instead of an apple 😃.
I also use two lines, as our branch names get pretty long. Thank goodness for bash completion!!
