nibalizer profile image Spencer Krum ・2 min read

The below script will add a pleasing visual queue of which account and region your are targeted at with IBM Cloud. Turn off color by setting $IBMCLOUD_PS1_COLOR_NO to any value. set_prompt and PROMPT_COMMAND example below is just an example and you can use the __ibmcloud_ps1 function anywhere you'd configure your prompt.
