Add colors to git command output
Instead of seeing a plain output after a git command we can have the display in color.
like when we execute git status to view changed or new files we can view each segment in colored way:
or for when we execute git diff a_modified_file_name
it is better to view deleted lines in red (-) and added lines in green (+).
For the same add following segment into your git config file (.gitconfig) for me this file is at my home location i.e (~/.gitconfig)
[color] ui = auto [color "branch"] current = cyan blue reverse local = blue remote = green [color "diff"] meta = blue frag = magenta old = red new = green [color "status"] added = blue changed = green untracked = magenta
