Colors In Terminal

| Comments

Looking for a way to jazz up your Here’s a quick and easy way to do so! Open up Terminal first, then type in nano -w ~/.bash_profile This will open a command line-based text editor. The file you’re editing is one that gets loaded every time you open a new Terminal window (or tab). Paste or type in the following at the end of the document:

export CLICOLOR=1

Then hit Ctrl+O and Ctrl+X. These key commands save the file and exit the editor. Now, open a new Terminal window and type in ls. This will list the contents of the folder you’re in (which should be your home folder) and the titles of the folders should be colored as shown in the above screenshot!
