I’ve never liked the standard colour path of OSX terminal and, not surprisingly, I didn’t like even the one that comes within Yosemite.
If you are like myself and you want to add some colours in your terminal, here is how you can do it:
- open the Terminal
- create a file called “.bash_profile” using your favourite text editor
- add these lines into it:
export CLICOLOR=1 export LSCOLORS=ExFxBxDxCxegedabagacad export PS1="\[\e[00;31m\][\h@\u]\[\e[0m\]\[\e[00;37m\] > \[\e[0m\]\[\e[00;32m\]\w\[\e[0m\]\[\e[00;37m\] : \[\e[0m\]" alias ll='ls -ltr'
- save and close the file
- restart your Terminal
The final result will be a Terminal coloured like the following one, showing “[hostname@user] > path :”
If you want to make your own combination of colours you can easily get your config using this web app https://bashrcgenerator.com/
