[alpine-user] less and Color

From: Andrew Bell <>

git diff on alpine seems to pass its output through less, but the color
escape codes seem to get modified/trashed in the process. I know I can use
git diff --no-color, which works fine, but I'd like to fix or at least
understand why my terminal isn't getting proper escape codes for colors and
instead I get a bunch of '[[31m", for instance.

Ideas appreciated,

Andrew Bell
