How does it work?
bash provides a special set of variables for your prompts.
PS1 is the one used by default. The install script adds a command to
~/.bashrc, a file that is run every time a new terminal opens. Inside of the new command, we run our script and set your
PS1 which runs some
git commands to determine its current state and outputs them as a string.
