My custom bash prompt

I wanted more information in my bash prompt, such as date/time and the directory I was in.  Here’s what it looks like:

bash_prompt

And this is what I added in my ~/.bash_profile:


PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\d \T > \[$(tput sgr0)\]\[\033[01;32m\]\u@\h\[\033[00m\] : \[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[00m\]\n\$ '

Run source ~/.bash_profile and enjoy. 🙂

BTW, there’s also a website that you can use to create your own: http://bashrcgenerator.com/.
