MacOs – Multiple terminals with customised color scheme

If you are like me 😀 So not closing yourself only to one operating system you then probably operate between the world of Windows and world of Linux 😀

At the moment I have set up my working environment in a way that allows me to work wit both systems. So one one end I got the new and shiny Windows 10 and on the other boot I got Mac OS.

And on Mac Os I have been looking for software that would give me better control and visibility of my sessions than the standard terminals app. With a bit of looking around I found couple of alternatives and the one that really got my attention is iTerm

The way it looks its more than satisfying 🙂 You can see detailed view of horizontal split on the screen below :

The program has a lot of cool color schemes to offer. What I also did was to edit my profile file accordingly to the mentioned solutions in this post

If you rather just to get details of modification here it is :

export CLICOLOR=1
export LSCOLORS=GxFxCxDxBxegedabagaced
export PS1='\[\033[01;32m\]\[email protected]\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[00m\]\$ '


Hope this will help you to customise your environment up to your needs 😀 If you are using other helpful tools feel free to share in comments!
