Colorize GIT - display GIT log, diff in color

To be honest, I like using a GUI when it's available, but if it's not, or if it's much slower to use one, well You'll stuck with git command line, and in that case a color presentation of log or diff will help you a lot in finding what you are looking for. This may be an old trick, but it helped me a lot:

git config --global core.pager "less -FRSX"
git config --global color.ui auto
git config --global color.pager true
