I am using Todolist program in console. The dates are in blue color and it is hard to see them. I have seen some ways to change the general settings of the console:

Changing the colors of lxterminal

Changing colour of text and background of terminal?

However I do only want to change the colors of Todolist program which runs in the console.

Is there a way to change these default colors? I was thinking of creating an alias of Todolist program in ./bashrc with an specific configuration of PS1, but I haven't been able to get it.

I am using LXTerminal.

Any ideas?

  • Is there a link or some background information about Todolist? – DK Bose Feb 3 '18 at 10:14

  • I don't use the program or know how to install it but I looked at the contents of the zip file and ~/todolist-master/vendor/github.com/fatih/color/README.md maybe of interest. – DK Bose Feb 3 '18 at 11:11
  • I have tried considering the @DKBose 's answer, but without success. I installed go get github.com/fatih/color but it does not let me change the colors. 'color.Cyan("Prints text in cyan.") bash: error sintáctico cerca del elemento inesperado '"Prints text in cyan."'' Any other ideas? – joshsoj Feb 4 '18 at 11:32
  • In that case, consider using another terminal emulator which offers you the option of having different profiles. – DK Bose Feb 4 '18 at 13:38
