git-0120b8c85c7a52b26ea7062fec349d178a4e0208.tar.bz2 allow to hide prompt for ignored pwd
Optionally set __git_ps1 to display nothing when present working directory is ignored, triggered by the new environment variable GIT_PS1_HIDE_IF_PWD_IGNORED. This environment variable may be overridden on any repository by setting bash.hideIfPwdIgnored to "false". In the absence of GIT_PS1_HIDE_IF_PWD_IGNORED this change has no effect. Many people manage e.g. dotfiles in their home directory with git. This causes the prompt generated by __git_ps1 to refer to that "top level" repo while working in any descendant directory. That can be distracting, so this patch helps one shut off that noise. Signed-off-by: Jess Austin <> Signed-off-by: Richard Hansen <> Reviewed-by: Richard Hansen <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
