Colorizing Your Git Output


If the output from your git commands is not colorized, it is time to bring out the old git config.

Either you configure git with the git config commands from a shell:

git config --global color.branch auto
git config --global color.diff auto
git config --global color.interactive auto
git config --global color.status auto

or you open up ~/.gitconfig in your favourite text editor and add the following section:

branch = auto
diff = auto
interactive = auto
status = auto

Given that you have a decent shell you can now enjoy the full glory of your git output.
