Make Terminal look good

The IR theme is one of the cleanest themes out there for terminal. Grab it from Todd's detailed blog linked below. I also use some of the colors from the theme to pretty up the shell a bit and make it look like:

Terminal Window

Put these settings in your .bashrc or .bash_profile

export COLOR_NC='\033[0m' # No Color export COLOR_WHITE='\033[1;37m' export COLOR_BLACK='\033[0;30m' export COLOR_BLUE='\033[0;34m' export COLOR_LIGHT_BLUE='\033[1;34m' export COLOR_GREEN='\033[0;32m' export COLOR_LIGHT_GREEN='\033[1;32m' export COLOR_CYAN='\033[0;36m' export COLOR_LIGHT_CYAN='\033[1;36m' export COLOR_RED='\033[0;31m' export COLOR_LIGHT_RED='\033[1;31m' export COLOR_PURPLE='\033[0;35m' export COLOR_LIGHT_PURPLE='\033[1;35m' export COLOR_BROWN='\033[0;33m' export COLOR_YELLOW='\033[1;33m' export COLOR_GRAY='\033[1;30m' export COLOR_LIGHT_GRAY='\033[0;37m'

Specify your shell to display time and current folder with home abbreviated as ~

export PS1="[[${COLOR_LIGHT_RED}]\T[${COLOR_NC}]][ [${COLOR_LIGHT_BLUE}]\w [${COLOR_NC}]] [${COLOR_PURPLE}]> [${COLOR_NC}]"
