OSX Lion Terminal Colors

With little googling you will be able to find the instructions. I’m summarizing them below for convenience.

  • Choose your favorite theme, I use IR_Black

Upon installation, go to Preferences and make it your default theme.

  • To test it out, you can use this bash script to see how the colors look.

Save the script into .sh file and `chmod +x` to make it executable.

  • Change the emulation to `xterm-color`

Check out this post for the details.

  • Add alias ls=’ls -G’ in your ~/.bash_profile

With this, you enable colors for your files/folders when you execute ls command.
