- Colors will be used in Windows only if the terminal supports it.
- Support in macOS ARM is limited to Apple M1 only
2.1 Installing from a package
Choose the right package for your operating system:
If there is no available package for your OS, you can download the cpufetch binary from the releases page, or build cpufetch from source (see below).
2.2 Building from source
You will need a C compiler (e.g,
make to compile
cpufetch. Just clone the repo and run
git clone https://github.com/Dr-Noob/cpufetch cd cpufetch make ./cpufetch
termuxapp (terminal emulator)
pkg install -y git make clanginside termux.
- Build from source normally:
- git clone https://github.com/Dr-Noob/cpufetch
- cd cpufetch

cpufetch will print the CPU logo with the system colorscheme. However, you can set a custom color scheme in two different ways:
4.1 Specifying a name
By specifying a name, cpufetch will use the specific colors of each manufacture. Valid values are:
./cpufetch --color intel (default color for Intel)
4.2 Specifying the colors in RGB format
5 colors must be given in RGB with the format:
[R,G,B:R,G,B:R,G,B:R,G,B:R,G,B]. These colors correspond to the CPU logo color (first 3 colors) and for the text colors (following 2).
./cpufetch --color 239,90,45:210,200,200:0,0,0:100,200,45:0,200,200
See cpufetch programming documentation.
