Making iTerm 2 highlight errors all the time

This helps when you have to chase down stupid stuff all day, every day:

Launch iTerm2

Go to iTerm2 – Preferences – Profiles – Advanced – Triggers – Edit

Click +

In the Regex, type:   (error|ERROR|Error)

Action: Highlight Text

Pick a color, Pick a background color that stand out for you

Check the Instant box

Close back out

I have:

(Fail|FAIL|fail)

(Differ|DIFFER|differ)

(Insufficient|INSUFFICIENT|insufficient)

(Access|ACCESS|access)

(Denied|DENIED|denied)

(Error|ERROR|error)
