Building cyanogenmod for FP2

Getting live coloured output from your server while building

Instead of mka, use mka >log.txt 2>&1 when building on your server (you can use an alias, I called mine mklog).
Then, using the following command on your terminal (once again aliased, as blog, for me) :

ssh you@server tail -f /path/to/your/build/log.txt

Should supply live coloured output, that can be stopped with Ctrl+C.
I find it extremely useful combined with termux on Android that allows for bash shorcuts to be put on the home screen, when ssh and login via private key are duly configured. This way I can check the status of my build while outside.
