It occurred to me that when I'm doing stuff in the terminal my PS1 is repeated several times for each command. My PS1 includes CWD and git branch so it can get reasonably long.
Is there a way I can set my PS1 to just a $ dollar symbol, but move that other information into a 'status bar' or just keep it out the way at the bottom of the terminal? Much like tmux's status bar, but with those bits that usually form part of my prompt.
Ideally, I'd like a solution that just involves changing my .bashrc, but any solution would work. I did a bit of googling and found a git branch thing for tmux (but no CWD / other bits) and a really flakey 'status bar with time in' that didn't really work.
