Get Colorful Directory Listing in Terminal on a Mac

| Comments

Terminal looks monochromatic by default on a Mac like this screenshot below.

Want to get ls colors on terminal on a mac like you may have seen in Ubuntu and some other linux distributions? Just append these two lines to your .bash_profile

export CLICOLOR=1
export LSCOLORS=ExFxCxDxbxegedabagacad

Make sure to restart your SHELL after which the terminal will show ls colors like below.
