Rainbow Stream Comments

Images & colors: Terminal vs. iTerm

about Rainbow Stream and iTerm2 · Aug 2014 · Helpful Not helpful

On Mac OS 10.6:

  • in iTerm 2.0: everything works correctly.
  • in Terminal: tweets are entirely black & white*, and images are colored but messed up.
    Colors show in help though.
