Simple colored git branch status in Bash prompt

Update August 14: just pushed version 1.1 today. Less code, better performance and small bugs fixed – I always like this combo.

Original post:

I just rewrote some code I’ve been using for embedding git branch status in the Bash command prompt. It should be faster, more robust, cleaner and more compatible now. So I put it on Github:

If you use Bash and Git, give it a spin. It is intentionally kept simple in functionality, because the prompt is not my primary source of information about git repository status. I don’t want a long and cluttered prompt in general. It also tries to be as fast as possible, because no one likes a lagging command prompt.
