2022-06-09 // terminal-is-not-fully-functional

After updating tmux and zsh last week, I started to see some weird errors like the one below:

❯ git log
WARNING: terminal is not fully functional
Press RETURN to continue

This seems to be caused by /usr/bin/less using an old ncurses version which lacks some color profiles. To fix this I’ve now installed less from Homebrew and configured Git to use that instead

brew install less
git config --global core.pager "/usr/local/bin/less -FX"
