My Ubuntu Configurations

.bashrc, .profile and configurations can be found here.


A simple getgo [verison] is what I use to update my go installation. Works like charm so far.

function getgo() {
    wget -P /tmp/"[email protected]".linux-amd64.tar.gz
    rm -rf ~/.local/go
    tar -C ~/.local -xzf /tmp/go"[email protected]".linux-amd64.tar.gz
    rm -rf /tmp/go"[email protected]".linux-amd64.tar.gz
    go version

Some aliases:

alias g='amfora'
alias du='du -bhs'
alias ls='ls --color=auto --group-directories-first'

For custom command prompt. Add this and comment the part commented below it.

(Stole it from StackOverflow and added my choice of colors)

parse_git_branch() {
 git branch 2> /dev/null | sed -e '/^[^*]/d' -e 's/* \(.*\)/(\1)/'
if [ "$color_prompt" = yes ]; then
 PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[00;35m\]\u\[\033[00;30m\]@\[\033[00;36m\]\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\W\[\033[01;31m\]$(parse_git_branch)\[\033[00m\]\$ '
 PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[email protected]\h:\w$(parse_git_branch)\$ '

# if [ "$color_prompt" = yes ]; then
#    PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[01;32m\]\[email protected]\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[00m\]\$ '
# else
#     PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[email protected]\h:\w\$ '
# fi
# unset color_prompt force_color_prompt


I usually place binaries like micro, amfora, youtube-dl in ~./local/bin (labeled as General below)

# Go
export PATH=$PATH:~/.local/go/bin:~/go/bin
export GOPATH=$HOME/go

# General
export PATH=$PATH:~/.local/bin

Bye Bye
