Ultimate Prompt and bashrc. File


I've been working on my .bashrc file on and off for years. Over the years, I have searched through scores of others' .bashrc files and command prompts.

I think this is the most amazing and ultimate command prompt and .bashrc file I have ever seen, and I wanted to share it with anyone who wanted to use it.

I wanted this script to work on any machine running bash just "out of the box" without any needed modifications. And it's very friendly for new people coming to Linux.

To download it, simply go here:
http://mindnugget.com/bashrc/bashrc.tar.gz

Or, you can just execute this and reboot (backup your existing .bashrc file first if you need it):
Code:
/bin/rm -f ~/.bashrc* && cd ~ && wget http://mindnugget.com/bashrc/.bashrc && wget http://mindnugget.com/bashrc/.bashrc_help
Once installed, for FULL COLOR HELP and description of each command and change, simply type:
Code:
hlp
Yes, it has it's own full color "help file" (using less supporting Page up and down - type Q to exit). No, I didn't make a man page for it and don't plan to. If you don't like the color, there is a non-color version included in the archive.

First, here's the command prompt:

Dark background:


Light background:


Solarized dark:


Solarized light:


Black and white:


It has a lot of useful information on it including the date, time, cpu usage, jobs, network connections to your machine, current user, server (if logged in SSH), your current directory, the size of all the files, the file count, and any errors with lookup text descriptions for those exit codes.


The ONLY feature this prompt does not contain (out of every prompt I've ever seen) is a timer for the last command executed. I did have the code working for this, but it requires debug, and it's just not very accurate. Also, it would stop working correctly if scripts gave weird exit codes. I removed it and may add it back in at some point.

Please note: The editor used in this script is nano, pico, or joe (it will automatically use what you have installed without any configuration). I use a graphical UI editor for most of my coding, so I have no need for the power of Emacs or even Vim. To change it, just change the alias and modify the edit function. If you install joe (available in almost all repositories and Joe's Own Editor), the scripts will automatically use it immediately instead without any configuration or reboot. This script also uses multitail and tree for a couple of commands. To automatically install them on Mint, Ubuntu, Debian, Red Hat, Fedora, SuSE, Gentoo, or Mandriva, just type: install_bashrc_support

So what are some of the new lazy/helpful commands?

hlp - Show's a full color help file with these commands and other nice shortcuts

Configuration (These will find your configuration files for you! There is no need to modify the script.)
ebrc - Edit the .bashrc file
phpconfig - Edit the PHP configuration
apacheconfig - Edit Apache web server configuration
mysqlconfig - Edit MySQL database configuration

Searching
h - Search command line history (also CTRL-S and CTRL-R)
p - Search running processes
f - Search filenames in the current folder
ftext - Searches for text in all files in the current folder

Information
da - Show the date
ver - Show the current version of the operating system
checkcommand - Show if a command is aliased, a file, or a built-in command
cpu - Shows the CPU usage
topcpu - Show the top 10 CPU processes
logs - Show all logs in /var/log
apachelog - View Apache web server logs (requires multitail)
rot13 - Rot13 conversion

Folders
la - Directory listing: show hidden files
ls - Directory listing: add colors and file type extensions
lx - Directory listing: sort by extension
lk - Directory listing: sort by size
lc - Directory listing: sort by change time
lu - Directory listing: sort by access time
lr - Directory listing: recursive ls
lt - Directory listing: sort by date
lm - Directory listing: pipe through 'more'
lw - Directory listing: wide listing format
ll - Directory listing: long listing format
labc - Directory listing: alphabetical sort
lf - Directory listing: files only
ldir - Directory listing: directories only

.. - go back 1 folder
... - go back 2 folders
.... - go back 3 folders
..... - go back 4 folders
up - go up a specified number of folders

bd - change into your previous folder (also cd -)
cpp - Copy file with a progress bar
cpg - Copy and go to the directory
mvg - Move and go to the directory
mkdirg - Create and go to the directory
rmd - Remove a directory, all sub folders, and files
pwd - Show the current directory (not an alias)
oldpwd - Show the previous directory (not an alias)
pwdtail - Returns the last 2 fields of the working directory

countfiles - Count all files (recursively) in the current folder
diskspace - Show how disk space is being used
folders - Show subfolders and disk space
folderssort - Show subfolders sorted with disk space
tree - Show a folder and file tree
treed - Show a folder tree
mountedinfo - Show mounted information

home - go to your home folder
web - Change into your Apache web folder

File Permissions
000 - Change permissions to no read/write/execute
644 - Change permissions to read only/write for owner
666 - Change permissions to read only
755 - Change permissions to read only and execute/write for owner
777 - Change permissions to read, write, and execute
mx - make files executable

Archives
extract - Extract any archive(s) (does everything unp does without the need to install it)
mktar - Create a tar file
mkbz2 - Created a bzip2 archive file
mkgz - Create a gzip archive file
untar - Extract a tar file
unbz2 - Extract a bzip2 archive file
ungz - Extract a gzip archive file

Network
netinfo - Show current network information
whatsmyip - Internal and external IP address lookup
ipview - Show the number of connections to the web server
openports - Show open ports

Reboot
rebootsafe - reboot safely
rebootforce - force reboot

I really recommend adding bash completion to your system.
http://www.caliban.org/bash/index.shtml

Download and then copy the bash_completion/bash_completion file to /etc - the script will automatically pick it up if installed. You probably will want to make a /etc/bash_completion.d directory for any additional completion scripts.

If you have any comments or useful things you'd like to see added, let me know in the comments below.

Enjoy!

Thanks, dugan! I thought I would share if it helps someone in some way. And I love my prompt!

I forgot to say, the script used multitail and tree (both awesome commands), but you can find those in almost all repositories.

For example:

Code:
sudo apt-get install multitail tree
or

Code:
yum install multitail tree
And the .bashrc script will still work without these.

That is pretty cool, I'll give it a shot and see how I like it.

I did notice a small problem though. At the top it's trying to source global definitions and programmable completion, but it's missing a "source" or ".". As-written it's trying to execute those files, which results in a permission denied error.

I also tried to use it on a very old machine I have here, and it resulted in an infinite loop of errors. I actually had to ssh into the machine as another user, su to root, and restore my original .bashrc from there because I couldn't get to a prompt as me. Not a huge deal, but maybe there should be some version checking to make it more robust.

If you're interested, the actual error was:
Code:
-bash: PS1+=\[\033[1;30m\](\[\033[0;36m\]$(date +%a) Sep-9: command not found
-bash: PS1+=\033[0;34m 4:30:21pm\[\033[1;30m\])-: command not found
-bash: PS1+=(\[\033[0;35m\]CPU 0.5%: command not found
-bash: PS1+=\[\033[1;30m\]:\[\033[0;35m\]\j: command not found
-bash: PS1+=\[\033[1;30m\]:\[\033[0;35m\]Net 24: command not found
-bash: PS1+=\[\033[1;30m\])-: command not found
-bash: PS1+=(\[\033[0;31m\]\u@\h: command not found
-bash: PS1+=\[\033[1;30m\]:\[\033[0;33m\]\w\[\033[1;30m\])-: command not found
-bash: PS1+=(\[\033[0;32m\]14M\[\033[1;30m\]:: command not found
-bash: PS1+=\[\033[0;32m\]$(/bin/ls -A -1 | /usr/bin/wc -l)\[\033[1;30m\]): No such file or directory
-bash: PS1+=\n: command not found
-bash: PS1+=\[\033[0;32m\]>\[\033[0m\] : command not found
Looks like it doesn't like the "+=" syntax.

Also, the stty and bind commands fail when opening a non-interactive session, eg:
Code:
> ssh server ls
/home/user/.bashrc: line 22: bind: warning: line editing not enabled
stty: standard input: Invalid argument
/home/user/.bashrc: line 43: bind: warning: line editing not enabled
/home/user/.bashrc: line 46: bind: warning: line editing not enabled
Fixed by adding a line to the top:
Code:
iatest=$(expr index "$-" i)
and then sticking an if statement around those four lines (the three binds and the stty call):
Code:
if [[ $iatest > 0 ]]; then bind "set bell-style visible"; fi
etc.

Awesome input. Thank you, suicidaleggroll!

Okay, I made all the changes you recommended except the concatenations for really old versions of bash. I might do that at a later date.

Thanks for the help and input!!

To "upgrade" to the latest version, just type:
Code:
rm -f ~/.bashrc* && cd ~ && wget http://mindnugget.com/bashrc/.bashrc

I use
Code:
bind '"\e[A": history-search-backward'
bind '"\e[B": history-search-forward'
on 100% of my servers' .bashrc files.
Is there a similar snippet that I can use outside of jeffguys' .bashrc to suppress this warning during non-interactive shells?

Thanks.

The same one I posted above should work.

$- is a special flag passed to bash at runtime. The presence of an "i" in the result means it's interactive, which is what that "iatest=$(expr index "$-" i)" snip is looking for. The result is the index of the letter "i" in the output of "$-". A value >0 means it was there, a value of zero means it wasn't. So if you then stick a "if [[ $iatest > 0 ]]" around all of your interactive-only commands, you should be set.

It's not perfect, as scripts/shells can be forced to run in interactive mode even if it's not an interactive session (by adding a -i to the bash flags or putting a "#!/bin/bash -i" for the header, but for a .bashrc file it's good enough.

Another option is to test PS1, but I don't like that because some .bashrc files will set PS1 regardless of it being an interactive session or not.

Habitual, what you want is:

Code:
if [[ $iatest > 0 ]]; then bind '"\e[A": history-search-backward'; fi
if [[ $iatest > 0 ]]; then bind '"\e[B": history-search-forward'; fi
All credit to suicidaleggroll of course.

Couple of points (from my systems point of view):

1. Probably not a biggee for some, but several of my machines, including my main pc at home, does not have ifconfig installed and hence all of the net based parts fail. Now I know IPv6 is still working it way through,
but all my machines are using iproute2 (hence ip command) for net based actions.

2. I found the below comment and resulting code to be a little ambiguous as a new directory on my system with no files in it will return '8.0K'
Quote:
# Total size of files in current directory
3. As we are in bash, why not use (()) for testing arithmetic

4. 'f' alias says it searches for files but there is no -type option to indicate this (ie directories will also be returned)

5. netstat commands are not available for me ... is there something to advise (maybe it is in help) what packages need to be installed

6. With aliases like countfiles, I find it cleaner (IMO) to use a function in place of trying to put it all on one line and be concerned about escaping
Code:
countfiles()
{
  for t in files links directories
  do  
    echo "$(find . -type ${t:0:1} | wc -l) $t"
  done 2> /dev/null
}
7. Your for loop for extracting archives is flawed in that it will undergo word splitting due to the use of $*. Either use a quoted "$@" or simply leave it off all together:
Code:
for archive
8. I would advise the use of [[]] over its single counterpart [] due to the prior being more robust and allows for additional features

9. pwdtail - in awk you can simply call $(NF-1) instead of setting the variable

10. distribution has no solution for Arch based systems

11. The big 'if' for setting PS1 would maybe look nicer as a case??

Hopefully some helpful feedback

jeff and suicidaleggroll:
Thanks for this nugget! It solves the issue and works both locally and remotely. I posted it at Improved ~./bashrc history search with credit, of course.

Have a Great Day.
You rock!

Edit: Fri Sep 19, 2014 - 11:14:49 AM EDT
I had to revert to the former entries in my local ~/.bashrc for "some" reason.
