LS_COLORS

This is a collection of extension:color mappings, suitable to use as your LS COLORS environment variable. Most of them use the extended color map, described in the ECMA-48 document; in other words, you'll need a terminal with capabilities of displaying 256 colors.

As of this writing, around 300 different filetypes/extensions is supported. That's indeed a lot of extensions, but there's a lot more! Your help is greatly appreciated.

Fork this project on github, add the extensions you are missing, and send a pull request.

Some guidelines:

For files that usually ends up next to each other, like html, css and js, try to pick colors that fits in nicely together. Filetypes with multiple possible extensions, like htm and html, should have the same color.

To install and use this file, put something like this is your shell resource file:

eval $( dircolors -b $HOME/LS_COLORS )

A quick way to install would be the following set of commands (assuming bash):

wget https://raw.github.com/trapd00r/LS_COLORS/master/LS_COLORS -O $HOME/.dircolors
echo 'eval $(dircolors -b $HOME/.dircolors)' >> $HOME/.bashrc
. $HOME/.bashrc

ZSH SYNTAX HIGHLIGHTING

zsh-syntax-highlighting-filetypes highlights file on the command-line in realtime, using these colors.

DEVELOPERS

There's a library I've written that lets you use various LS COLORS on arbitary files and directories. A simple implementation can be found here.

Using this, you can do

find $HOME -maxdepth 1  | ls_color

mpc search artist Laleh | ls_color

... and so on.

SO WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE
