I like to use a custom prompt (current path in blue) on my unix machine:
export PS1='\[\e[0;34m\]\w \$\[\e[m\] '
But when I try to use it on Mac's terminal it doesn't work: it fails to detect the end of the prompt and overwrites the prompt when I type commands. This also happens when I'm inputting a long command where it wraps over the same line instead of starting a new line.
I don't understand why this is the case since I use bash on both machines. Any suggestions on how to remedy this?
