Mac OS X Terminal Color

I was using linux ubuntu for my work now I’m using Mac OS X 10.7.3, I was surprised when I did ls command, the ls result returned had the same color for files and folders. Fortunately there is a trick to set ls command with colors.

Create or edit this file

~/.bash_profile

Then insert this inside it

export CLICOLOR=1
export LSCOLORS=ExFxCxDxBxegedabagacad

Save it, now open your new terminal instance.
