ZSH Highlighting

Does anyone know how I could highlight directories, executable files, etc in a terminal with ZSH? When I type "ls" I was the files to be highlighted.

alias ls="ls --color"
This should do it, you have to type it every session. The solution is to add the line to your ~/.zshrc file.

Maybe try this one...
eval `dircolors`
alias ls="ls -h --color=auto"
You'll have colors for more file types

(the h is for a human readable output : Ko, Mo, Go etc...)
