Colored Git Prompt
My Git prompt: gist.github.com/29138
Shows the current branch name. The red star tells me that my repository is dirty.
I find this very useful every day. But sometimes, as when going into my MP3 directory, 'git status' takes a very long time to complete scanning over 300GB, so I added a file named '.git-prompt-disable' in the MP3 dir and I don't get the red star.
