Display GIT branch in the terminal

I encounter with this issue how to make possible to display my GIT branch in the console. I found the answer in ASK UBUNTU: https://askubuntu.com/questions/730754/how-do-i-show-the-git-branch-with-colours-in-bash-prompt

Step 1
nano ~/.bashrc

Step 2
Add the following code at the end of the line
# Show git branch name
force_color_prompt=yes
color_prompt=yes
parse_git_branch() {
 git branch 2> /dev/null | sed -e '/^[^*]/d' -e 's/* \(.*\)/(\1)/'
}
if [ "$color_prompt" = yes ]; then
 PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[01;32m\]\u@\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[01;31m\]$(parse_git_branch)\[\033[00m\]\$ '
else
 PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\u@\h:\w$(parse_git_branch)\$ '
fi
unset color_prompt force_color_prompt
Step 3
Reload the file
source ~/.bashrc
