My bash prompt is now two lines
Every ten years or so I change up my shell prompt. This year I added a newline so that the ever increasing information I display doesn’t crowd out the actual command I’m using (especially since I added git_prompt.sh):
And here’s what it looks like in iTerm2:
This has another benefit I hadn’t anticipated. I often cut-and-paste text for my terminal. Until now, I had to then cut out the prompts because it’s irrelevant to the reader and takes up space. Now, all that irrelevant stuff is on a line by itself.
