I want to distinguish my command from the rest of the output of the shell easily through different colors. But I don't have much experience with customizing my bash shell, so I don't know how to reset the color (after) my input.
my current PS1 variable looks like this:
export PS1="$red\u$green\$(__git_ps1) $turk\w $white$ " # '\$(__git_ps1)' git status prompt (generates a space before it even if empty)
So my input is white. But even the output of the commands is white because it is not reset. Furthermore, if the command itself color codes its output, then it itself resets the colors which result in some ugly mixing of white and gray.
So how do I reset the color after my input command?
