A friend asked me about how to change bash’s prompt color after you logged in, regarding my previous post.
I utilize a bash PS1 generator, just play around with the options and copy the Result code into the clipboard.
Next step, after you logged in, open with your favorite editor file named
$ vi ~/.bashrc
Paste the Result code from the PS1 Generator:
# Custom bash prompt via kirsle.net/wizards/ps1.html
export PS1="\[$(tput setaf 1)\]\[email protected]\h:\[$(tput setaf 7)\]\W\\$ \[$(tput sgr0)\]"
then, execute bash to see the result:
$ exec bash
All done. 🙂
