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:
[color] 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.
