For a complete experience, make your terminal use the same colorscheme as vim.

I use alacritty

Add this to ~/.config/alacritty/alacritty.yml

# Colors
colors:
  # Default colors
  primary:
    background: "0x1E1E3F"
    foreground: "0xE1EFFF"

  # Colors the cursor will use if `custom_cursor_colors` is true
  cursor:
    text: "0x1E1E3F"
    cursor: "0xFAD000"

  # Normal colors
  normal:
    black: "0x000000"
    red: "0xEC3A37"

Troubleshooting

True color

Make sure you are using a terminal emulator that supports truecolor. Read more about this here.

Colours don't look right

If you are running vim within tmux, you may run into some truecolor issues.

To fix, add this to you tmux.conf

set -g terminal-overrides ',xterm-256color:Tc'
set -g default-terminal "tmux-256color"
set -as terminal-overrides ',xterm*:sitm=\E[3m'

And in your .bash_profile || .zshrc

export TERM="xterm-256color"

Ensure you tmux kill-server, quit your emulator of choice and startup it all back up again. It should then look 👌.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
