So I have already customized my terminal to a very good extend but lately I have been more into trying to do some shell scripts to fasten my workflow. Like pushing, Committing, minifying and/or compiling my Sass code. I wanted to output some colored messages in the terminal but I didn’t like my limited color pallet in the terminal (Red, Green, Yellow, Cyan, White, Black, etc..) I wanted different color hues & some fancy stuff.
So I searched for this if it’s possible
& I found this for ZSH & iterm2, another search for “Spectrum” & I found this function Actually, it turned out that the spectrum function is already in ohmyzsh . Drop this function inside your
.zshrc file then call
spectrum_ls in the terminal & boom! watch the magic.
Now all you need to is to reference the color code outputted like so
$FG in your ZSH theme, just replace “000” with the color code “000” is black btw & you are good to go! for example in create a new ZSH theme & try this
I hope someone can find this useful, I didn’t know about it before & I’m really in love with the terminal.
