Seeing Red in Git

I have a hard time seeing the color red in the Windows command prompt. This is particularly bothersome when I’m using Git. I’ve tried changing the background but there are some utilities (I’m looking at you Chocolatey) that change the background back to black.

I’ve altered my .gitconfig file as follows:

    ui = auto

[color "status"]
  added = cyan bold
  changed = cyan bold
  nobranch = cyan bold
  untracked = cyan bold

[color "diff"]
  old = cyan bold

[color "branch"]
  remote = cyan bold



A nice reference to the default colors in Git can be found at Shallow Thoughts.
