Share your prompt!

Inspired by @WilsonEPhillips awesome bash prompt and Share your desktop thread

Show me your prompts!

Preferable in this format (so I can steal it others can recreate it):

  • picture
  • shell used
  • prompt

Shamefully I still use the default prompt, but I will start anyway:

  • Screenshot_20231120_205436
  • Bash
  • PS1='[\u@\h \W]\$ '

I wish I could remember which bash prompt generator I used to do this.


Bash shell

The one in /root has a different color for the user

2 line color prompt (root)
export PS1="ā”Œā”€ā”€[\[\e[31m\]\u\[\e[m\]@\[\e[36m\]\h\[\e[m\]] \d, \[\e[36m\]\T\[\e[m\] [\e[1;33m\]\w\[\e[m\]] \nā””ā”€ā”€[ <\[\e[5;31m\]\\$\[\e[m\]> "

2 line color prompt (user)
export PS1="ā”Œā”€ā”€[\[\e[1;33m\]\u\[\e[m\]@\[\e[36m\]\h\[\e[m\]] \d, \[\e[36m\]\T\[\e[m\] [\e[1;33m\]\w\[\e[m\]] \nā””ā”€ā”€[ <\[\e[1;5;33m\]\\$\[\e[m\]> "
