Bash PS1 prompt with exit status

Just add the following code to your '~/.bashrc' file,

export PS1='\[\e[01;32m\]\u\[\e[0m\]\[\e[00;37m\] \[\e[0m\]\[\e[01;37m\]>\[\e[0m\]\[\e[00;37m\] \[\e[0m\]\[\e[01;33m\]\w\[\e[0m\]\[\e[00;37m\]\n\[\e[0m\]\[\e[$(((($?>0))*31))m\]\$\[\e[0m\] '

And then run the following command to apply changes,

source .bashrc
