I have a Bash prompt that takes a while (~100-200ms) to generate, because it includes Git working tree status that takes some time to compute. Sometimes I start typing a command before it appears, but then the command wraps incorrectly.
Here is what I see in the terminal:
# I start typing: some command... # then the prompt appears: some command...username [branch*] some/directory $ some command... # then I type some more, causing the command to wrap: some command...username [branch*] some/directory $ some command...wra pping text 1 # and when I continue typing, the text overwrites the second line: some command...username [branch*] some/directory $ some command...wra wrapping text 2
Any idea how to prevent this?
Here is how my Bash prompt is set up:
# in .bashrc: PROMPT_COMMAND="PS1=\`/home/username/my-prompt.sh\`" # in /home/username/my-prompt.sh: $PROMPT=... $PROMPT+=... echo -ne $PROMPT
I believe I set up all my
\]s correctly inside $PROMPT. The issue appears only when I start typing before the prompt appears, and my command wraps.
