What is it?

set-bg generates a custom background image for iTerm2, setting it as the background. By default, it creates a letterpressed hostname alongside the Apple logo in the bottom right. It also creates an alias from ssh to sshb so that the hostname will change as you ssh to various servers.




Install

ImageMagick is required. To install ImageMagick, install MacPorts here: http://www.macports.org/

Then run:

sudo port install imagemagick

To install the set-bg suite of scripts:

wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/tricon/set-bg/raw/master/install.sh -O - | sh
