A Rainbow in Your Console

Here’s news for all of our Pastebin users. You must have been using this online service for some time if you exchanged bits of your logs and other messages with other Calculatists.

Gentoo loves colors in the console; so do we!

Now you can use wgetpaste to redirect the output of emerge, eix, ls and other such in full color (provided that they support colored output, that is). Run eix-sync to enable the new settings before trying something like this:

emerge -pv … | wgetpaste

Please note that it does not apply to scripts, as color output is disabled by default for commands called from the bash shell.


One more way in which CL is different.
