How to integrate vcprompt with bash shell to show git information in Ubuntu

Sunday, March 10, 2013

If you are using git in Linux then you might have hit command 'git status' to find out in which branch are we currently on, whether there are any changed contents or any uncommitted changes. Wouldn't be nice if we can get those git information easily so that we need not hit that command frequently. 'vcprompt' is the solution here. You can easily integrate vcprompt in bash prompt so that we can see git information from the prompt itself. Lets discuss some steps to integrate vcprompt in bash. I am using Ubuntu 12.10 here. It should also work in other similar Linux variations.
vcprompt is a script to show version control information in the command prompt. This script is written by djl. vcprompt is heavily inspired by Greg Ward's original implementation in C.

Requirements: Python 2.4 or later
You can check Python version from following command.
python --version
If curl is not installed in your systemm then you have to install curl first.
sudo apt-get install curl

How to do?

Download vcprompt script and make it executable.
sudo curl -sL https://github.com/djl/vcprompt/raw/master/bin/vcprompt > ~/bin/vcprompt

sudo chmod 755 ~/bin/vcprompt
Now we have to setup bash to use vcprompt.For this you we need to modify .bashrc file
gedit ~/.bashrc
Copy the following code and paste it in the end of the file.
PS1='\n\033[0;34m\u@\h:\033[0;31m\w \033[01;35m $(vcprompt -f '[%b%m%u%a]')\033[00m \n> '
Save the file and close the editor. Enter following command.
source ~/.bashrc
Hmm...now you get nice looking prompt. If you are in the git working folder then you will see current branch and other git informations.

Dont forget to check README file of vcprompt for more customization options.

How to add Xampp Control panel GUI in Ubuntu 12.10 (Linux)

Monday, March 4, 2013

When you install Xampp in Linux, there is no control panel GUI for starting or stopping the Server and other components in default installation. But you can create easily. This short tutorial is for those who want to add Xampp control panel GUI in Ubuntu 12.10.


How to do?

First you need 'python-glade2' for this to work
sudo apt-get install python-glade2
Now open Terminal and create a new file named 'Xampp.desktop'
sudo gedit ~/Desktop/Xampp.desktop
You will get text editor. Now copy following code and paste it there.
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Xampp Control Panel
Comment=Start or Stop XAMPP
Exec=gksudo python /opt/lampp/share/xampp-control-panel/xampp-control-panel.py
Icon=/opt/lampp/htdocs/favicon.ico
Categories=Application;Development;Web
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Terminal=0
If you have installed Xampp for Linux in other than '/opt' folder then change the 'Exec' and 'Icon' value accordingly.

सिन्धुपाल्चोकमा जन्मिए पनि काठमाण्डौलाइ कर्मथलो बनाएका निलाम्बर शर्मा आफुलाइ 'मात्र नेपाली'का नामले चिनाउन चाहन्छन् । इलेक्ट्रोनिक्स इन्जिनियरिङका बिद्यार्थी र सफ्टवेयर डेभ्लपरको पेशा अँगालेका निलाम्बर ब्लगिङ र सामाजिक संजालमा रुची राख्छन । निलाम्बरको ब्लग http://www.nilambar.net/ मा खासगरी सुचना-प्रविधिका कुराहरु धेरै पाइन्छन । मेरोरिपोर्टको साताका ब्लगर स्तम्भमा यसपाली हामीले उनै निलाम्बरसंग कुराकानी गरेका छौँ । प्रस्तुत छ प्रकाश लामिछानेले गरेको कुराकानी :
ब्लग लेखन कहिलेदेखि शुरू गर्नुभयो?
ब्लगिङमा नजानिँदो पाराले छिरियो । blogger.com मा पहिलो चोटी ब्लग बनाएको सन् २००८ मा हो । सुरुमा चाँही आफ्नै नामको वेबसाइट बनाउने रहरले ब्लग बनाएको थिएँ । सुरुमा खासै सक्रिय थिइन अहिले जस्तो ।
केका लागि ब्लगिङ गर्नुहुन्छ?
सफ्टवेर क्षेत्रमा भएको नाताले मेरा पोष्टहरु प्राय: त्यहीसंग सम्बन्धित हुन्छन । सफ्टवेर बनाउँदा आएका अप्ठ्याराहरुलाइ हल गर्ने तरिकाहरु पोष्ट गर्छु । आफुलाई जे कुराले अप्ठ्यारा पर्यो त्यही कुराले अरुको समय बर्बाद नगरोस् अनि सजिलो होस् भन्नका लागि यसो गरेको हो । कहिलेकाहीँ अरु आफुलाई मनमा लागेका कुराहरु पनि पोस्ट गर्ने गर्छु ।
