I used to have a black / orange / green git bash color style.
Now I needed to download it again and it's a mess (for me).

All pink, lime green and yellow. It hurts my eyes.

Is there a way to return it to old version style or customize it ?

This new version had some great improvement, it allows you to edit font style, transparency and some other things. Really Nice !

But is there a way to edit the text that is your path where you are at.


set git to use default colors:

$ git config --global color.ui auto

alternatively, you can set the colors manually by editing ~/.gitconfig

  diff = "blue black bold"
  status = "green red"
  branch = red
  interactive = auto
  ui = true

you can also set each context manually:

[color "status"]
    untracked = cyan
    changed = red
    added = green

[color "branch"]
  current = magenta reverse
  local = magenta
  remote = green

quoting git config documentation:

You can set the color to any of the following values: normal, black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta, cyan, or white. If you want an attribute like bold in the previous example, you can choose from bold, dim, ul (underline), blink, and reverse (swap foreground and background)
