Make Git Bash Awesome Again

Add some spice to git bash to help battle the cubicle blues.

Add some sweet ascii art

Edit your ~/.bashrc file and add the following

cat << EOF

Edit this line to make whatever your heart desires. Here is a fun one that creates the shrug emoji.

PS1='\[\033]0;$TITLEPREFIX:${PWD//[^[:ascii:]]/?}\007\]' # set window title
PS1="$PS1"'\n'                 # new line
PS1="$PS1"'\[\033[32m\]'       # change to green
PS1="$PS1"'\u@\h '             # user@host<space>
PS1="$PS1"'\[\033[35m\]'       # change to purple
PS1="$PS1"'¯\(°_o)/¯ '         # shrug
PS1="$PS1"'\[\033[33m\]'       # change to brownish yellow
PS1="$PS1"'\w'                 # current working directory
