Display git repository information in a command prompt.

Project description

GitPrompt displays the current branch, the status of stash and rebase, and optionally, non-zero exit status codes.


To follow along, create a new repository and set your prompt:

$ git init; touch x; git add x; git commit -m x
$ export PS1='cwd$(../gitprompt $?) $ '

The current branch is displayed:

cwd master $ git checkout -b new
cwd new $ git checkout master
cwd master $ echo y1 > y; git add y; git commit -m y1; git checkout new

The number of saved stashes is indicated:

cwd new $ echo y2 > y; git add y; git stash save
cwd new stash $ touch z; git add z; git stash save
cwd new stashes! $ git stash pop ; git stash pop

Whether a rebase is in progress is indicated:

cwd new $ git rebase master
cwd new rebase! $ git rebase --abort
cwd new $ git config core.editor true; git rebase --interactive master
cwd new rebase! $ git rebase --abort

If gitprompt was passed a non-zero exit code, it will be displayed:

cwd new $ true
cwd new $ false
=> 1
cwd new $
