What would you like to do?
Iterm2 - ssh change background color when in production
# .bash_profile
# Copy this file on the desired machine.
# This script will change your iterm tab color and the background for that tab.
# Requirements
# - iterm as terminal
# - a profile named Prod in iterm. You can configure it how ever you want. A profile can be found in Preferences -> Profiles
# Set tab color to red
echo -e "\033]6;1;bg;red;brightness;255\a"
# Set window profile ( in my case, Prod profile will make the background red)
echo -e "\033]50;SetProfile=Prod\a"

nice.. but when exiting the SSH session the window remains red. . did I miss a return to original state setting?
