Good intro, especially with the custom characters / colors.

Once you decide that a custom prompt is definitely for you, you may want to consider a more comprehensive prompt framework.

I suggest taking a look at Bash-It

It has a lot of prompt themes to chose from.

Many of the themes support different segments that you can use to customize your prompt, ie:

  • Git/Svn status
  • Node/Python/Ruby Status
  • K8S Status

I'm a huge fan of (and contributor to) the Bash-It Powerline themes, which support many different types of segments, along with the ability to control both the order of segments and their colors.
