Add Color to the Mac Terminal Prompt
On Mac OS X, the Terminal output isn’t colorized by default. Add the following to ~/.bash_profile:
export CLICOLOR=1 export LSCOLORS=ExFxCxDxBxegedabagacad
And uncheck “Use bold fonts” in Terminal preferences under Text. Monaco font in bold looks hideous.
While we are at it, make sure you are using the Pro settings scheme as a default. Which you use is really personal preference, but if you are a beginner, let’s start you off on the right foot with Pro.
