Customize bash in Mac terminal to show version control information

Highlights: I came across nice utility vcprompt which shows the git source control information in Mac OS bash terminal.

Install vcprompt using brew
brew install vcprompt

Now Add this code in .bashrc file in your home directory
You can search for different colors and use those as variables with “$” prefix.
You can pass different format options for vcprompt -f flag.

export PS1="\n\u:\w \[$RED\] \$(vcprompt -f [%b])\[$NO_COLOR\] \n→ "

Once you are done with above changes, either restart the terminal or run the command to load configuration file.

source ~/.bashrc

Result: Now You will see the project current branch and other information when you navigate to a folder which is under source control.
