I wasn't quite sure where to post this, so figured an issue off of your repository might be the most likely to be found by others. :) I took a bit of time today and roughly mirrored the base colors that your solarized theme for dircolors gives in OSX's LSCOLORS environment variable:
It's not nearly as comprehensive (you can't do file-type matching, for example), but it should be close, for those who don't want to replace ls with the GNU version.
hi logic, can you provide a screenshot here so that people can see how it looks like. I can link this issue from the README ...
Sure, no problem. Here are the default colors:
And here they are in a Solarized-esque version:
Thanks, I've added a note to this issue ...
There is also another way.
You can install coreutils from homebrew and use that without replacing the OS X tools. Since they are installed with 'g' as the prefix
in your .bashrc, .profile or .bash_profile add this line
# Load GNU aliases
and alias ls to GNUs alias
alias ls='gls --color=auto'
and of course add the aliases to coreutils before the ls alias
# Load GNU aliases
add note for osx users as proposed by @metamorfos in Issue #10
coreutils can also be installed from the fink and MacPorts repositories (older alternatives to homebrew). Choose one and stick with it; don't mix them!
Better lscolors for solarized shell
Set LSCOLORS for ls colors in Solarized theme
@teoljungberg is "aliases" meant to be a directory or file (8.23_1 has no such file/directory)? what should be done after adding these lines to .bashrc/.bash_profile to make this work?
@zevav It was when I wrote up that guideline, but after looking into it now I can see that it's not a directory. If you use homebrew as I used, and if you have /usr/local/bin in your path you have all of these in your PATH already. You can just alias ls to gls
