Show us your OSX Terminal.

CWA suggested a thread about how our OSX Terminals look and what colors we are using. Here is my Terminal in Lion. Color Scheme goes back to my Atari ST Terminal days.

Ooooh, I like this thread. ;)

Here's mine. I've changed the default config up a bit to meet my needs. I have a custom PS1 variable value (this is why my prompt is different from the default). So, instead of the the machine name:current directory username$ prompt, I have a simple current directory :: prompt. I've also made the background translucent with a slight blur.

In case you're interested, I've set PS1 to be the following:
Code:

PS1="\[\e[37;40m\]\w\[\e[31;40m\] :: \[\e[0m\]"

Since I'm not connected to multiple machines on this box, ever, you can have any colour you like, as long as it's white on black.

Cool CWA. That reminds me of my Commodore 128 in a terminal when I had it plugged into a Green Screen monitor. I got sick of Amber monitors and got one with Green text. Display looked like your terminal! Brings back many memories!

And Van, I know you would love this thread. :D

Funny that, so far, all but Dennis' has been transparent :)

Of course! You know me and my love of the CLI.

Indeed. Transparency sure does seem to be a popular change (if you want to count a sample of 4 as significant).

Hence the 'so far'. I will say that in the Linux crowd I know, it's common as well (I do the same color combination/transparency on my linux laptop as well)

I like the homebrew scheme. How about something more interesting - here is my code to setup my bash prompt (put in ~/.profile)
Code:

export PS1='\e[0;31m\w\e[m\n\T (\! \j) > '
everything up to the \n is for directory -> the \n is for newline. \T is for time \! is for job number and \j is for running jobs.
More info here
How to: Change / Setup bash custom prompt (PS1)

Also because blue doesn't show up well on a black/transparent background I changed my lscolors for directory (note this code snippet is all comment except for the last line (the export line) - which is the actual setup for lscolors) I just keep it all in the ~/.profile so that I have a reference for it.

Code:

#ansi colors for ls
# a    black
# b    red
# c    green
# d    brown
# e    blue
# f    magenta
# g    cyan
# h    light grey
# A    bold black, usually shows up as dark grey
# B    bold red
# C    bold green
# D    bold brown, usually shows up as yellow
# E    bold blue
# F    bold magenta
# G    bold cyan
# H    bold light grey; looks like bright white
# x    default foreground or background
#order of LSCOLORS
# 1.  directory
# 2.  symbolic link
# 3.  socket
# 4.  pipe
# 5.  executable
# 6.  block special
# 7.  character special
# 8.  executable with setuid bit set
# 9.  executable with setgid bit set
# 10.  directory writable to others, with sticky bit
# 11.  directory writable to others, without sticky bit
#                        1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1011
export LSCOLORS='Hxfxcxdxbxegedabagacad'

To use colors -
Code:

ls -G
You can put that as an alias in your .profile
Code:

alias ls='ls -G'

That ls colour "legend" is fantastic - that's a keeper for sure! I'm going to have some fun with that later.
