Making mistakes in production is one thing that always scares me. This problem multiplies if you use a lot of terminal tabs but a quick and easy solution is to make production red so it’s immediately noticeable where you are logged into.

For the image above I’m using Termius on iOS which supports this and allows you to set it on a folder level and then any ssh connections under the group inherits the color.

It’s a really simple way to help distinguish which connection you are logged into and can be a life saver. This can done in other terminals too, just do a web search to find instructions for your app of choice.
