Best Terminal Theme Ever

Adapted from Noah Frederick's peppermint theme.

Step 1

Download the peppermint theme from the link above.

Step 2: Enable Terminal Coloring

Enable some terminal coloring by adding the following lines to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile

COLOR_BOLD="\[\e[1m\]" COLOR_DEFAULT="\[\e[0m\]" PS1="$COLOR_BOLD\u@\h \w \$ $COLOR_DEFAULT"

Step 3: Git Coloring

Open up your terminal and paste the following line in:

git config --global --add color.ui true

And that's it, you're done. I didn't really like the default font for peppermint so I changed it back to menlo. Finally, I hit command+= twice to increase my font size and there you have it!

Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: everything around that you call life, was made up by people no smarter than you.
