Visual cues for branches and remotes

1.6K votes

I often have several remotes added for a given repository. Especially on GitHub doing open-source work. On some repositories (including some GitHub Exterprise repositories) the icon may be difficult to see or missing altogether.
I would like some way to customize the view of a remote locally and have branches and tags from that remote be visually distinct.


Some suggestions/options I think could work:
- Allow for picking an icon (a small, fixed set of icons would be fine) and color for the icon. This icon would then replace the existing one that it derived from the remote repository.
- Allow for picking a color for the remote. This color could be a border around the existing branch and tag labels in the history tree.
