[SOLVED] How to Color Git using Ubuntu Terminal?
When you want to change from the black and white colors in your git, you can use the default git color configurations using the command:
git config --global color.ui true
--global is optional, if you want to make the coloring for the current repository, ignore this and type it as:
git config color.ui true
To make it more colorful you can add more configurations in your .gitconfig file. By default, git supports the colors black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta, cyan and white. To add configurations by yourself, open the Ubuntu terminal and type the command to open git configuration file. Here I have used the vi editor, so you type,
Add the following configurations to the file and save.
[color] ui = auto [color "branch"] local = yellow current = yellow reverse remote = green [color "diff"] frag = magenta bold meta = yellow bold new = green bold old = red bold [color "status"] changed = green added = yellow untracked = magenta bold
This way you can change the colors of your git status, diff etc as your own idea and make your git beautiful. Have fun and happy coding.
