Changing Default Colors in Git and Posh-Git

Git In Git, color.status.changed, color.status.untracked and color.branch.remote, default to red on normal (whatever your console background color is). This can be difficult to read. You can change them using: git config “foreground-color background-color attribute” ​For example: git config –global color.status.changed “yellow normal bold” git config –global color.status.untracked “yellow normal bold” git config –global color.branch.remote “yellow normal bold” Note that “yellow normal dim” will show up as white in PowerShell, so if you want to use yellow, you must also specify bold.

New CMS Software

My instance of Orchard crapped out on me a couple of days ago. I was hosting it on Azure and I think they updated to .NET 4.5 and the version I was using didn’t work with it. Tried updating a local copy of my site to the latest version of Orchard over the last couple of days with no luck. I figured since I was going to have to start from scratch anyway, maybe I should try out a different CMS. [Read More]
