I posted this to Flickr earlier this evening, but some people wanted to know how I did it so here you go:
If you are on a Mac the command you want to run to put a burger in your Bash shell prompt like mine is:
export PS1="\w 🍔 "
(which will eventually end up looking like
export PS1="\w <U+1F354> ")
That string is \w for “current working directory”, a space, an emoji burger, and two more spaces for padding.
If you want it to be permanent put that line in your .profile or .bash_profile.
For my prompt I removed my system user name and host. People use those to know which computer they’re on and which user they are, but I know I am me and I am on the burger computer so I removed them. Here are some other options.
- \d – Current date
- \t – Current time
- \h – Host name
- # – Command number
- \u – User name
- \W – Current working directory (ie: Desktop/)
- \w – Current working directory, full path (ie: /Users/Admin/Desktop)
