WSL2 just official launch out with Windows 10 last month. I use time to customize the shell for the WSL2 and would like to take a note down for future me can repeat it when it nescessaries.
Dark Blue Directory in WSL2 Terminal
It is hard to see blue directory. So, this one can change with
dircolors by added the
To done that, use
dircolors --print-database for export the current colors configuration to the file
dircolors --print-table > ~/.dircolors #Ubuntu WSL
Then edit some color such as the directory colors from blue to be yellow as following
DIR 01;33 # directory
this one will change color of directory listing to be
yellow that is great enough to see.
Zsh Terminal Fonts
Follow this blog for setup zsh with powerline fonts for Windows. This help to make Windows terminal can display special characters in zsh shell.
Another finding is that have to use font
DejaVu Sans Mono for Powerline which seem perfect showing all characters of the zsh terminal.
It make much more fancy when
ls list the file in colorful way. follow by this repository.
