Something to pretty up my terminal

Was wondering if there is anything out there that i can use to pretty up
my terminal's output? (linux)

Stuff like migrations and most rake tasks output as just white text on
black.

thanks!

Couple of options...

Install the 'wirble' gem.

In ~/.irbrc add the following:

require 'rubygems'
require 'wirble'
Wirble.init
Wirble.colorize

If you're using capistrano, install the capistrano_colors gem and then add this to the top of your deploy.rb file:

require 'capistrano_colors'

Like that idea. Add that and you will have to start shielding your
eyes. The text terminal is your friend. Do *everything* you can in the
text terminal. You will learn better and faster, I promise.
