How to make your Mac terminal look like a Linux terminal
I finally switched from Linux to Mac!
Well, not entirely - I still have my Linux laptop, and I use both of them at home. But when I go traveling again I'll only be taking the MacBook with me.
I'm really enjoying the MacBook so far, but I do miss a couple of Linux things - especially the terminal. It comes with nice colours and fonts out of the box, and it's easy to use. I spend a lot of time in the terminal so that's important to me.
That's not the case on Mac or Windows. The first time I opened a terminal on my new MacBook, it looked rather ugly and hard to read.
So I customised it to look like Linux:
It also detects git and displays the current branch and status.
I used the PowerLevel10k theme.
I set it to "lean" as I like to keep it to just text (coloured for readability).
Then I added a couple of touch-ups to make it look just like the Ubuntu terminal.
I changed the background to this colour:
#11071A (not the exact same but it felt good on my eyes).
Finally, I changed the font to Ubuntu Mono and added 1.2 character spacing.
And done. Much better :) Now to do some actual coding!
