thias/cosmetic — version 1.0.2 Apr 28th 2015



Cosmetic configuration changes. Purely a matter of taste. Initially only tested on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but changes to support more distributions are very welcome.

  • cosmetic::bash : Change bash prompt and a few other minor tweaks.
  • cosmetic::release : Create nice looking release and motd files.
  • cosmetic::vimrc : Tweak the original global vimrc to change indentation.


Change bash prompt to include some color, different for root (red vs. green) :

class { '::cosmetic::bash':
  # Green user with blue directory
  ps1      => '[\[\033[01;32m\]\u\[\033[00m\]@\h\[\033[01;34m\] \W\[\033[00m\]]\$ ',
  # Red user with blue directory
  ps1_root => '[\[\033[01;31m\]\u\[\033[00m\]@\h\[\033[01;34m\] \W\[\033[00m\]]\$ ',

The exact same, from hieradata :

  - '::cosmetic::bash'
cosmetic::bash::ps1: '[\[\033[01;32m\]\u\[\033[00m\]@\h \[\033[01;34m\]\W\[\033[00m\]]\$ '
cosmetic::bash::ps1_root: '[\[\033[01;31m\]\u\[\033[00m\]@\h \[\033[01;34m\]\W\[\033[00m\]]\$ '
