Shades-of-Purple Theme for Hyper™
I 💜 purple, because purple can be genius.
A FOSS (Free & Open Source Software) project. Maintained by @AhmadAwais.

Professional Hyper™ Terminal theme with hand-picked & bold shades of purple 💜 to go along with your command line usage. A custom Hyper™ Terminal theme with style.


Easy Installation

Make sure you have the latest Hyper™ Terminal installed i.e. >= ver 2.0. Which comes with the Hyper CLI. Then just run the following command.

hyper i shades-of-purple-hyper

Manual Installation

  1. Go to Hyper™ preferences i.e. Open your ~/.hyper.js config file. On mac press Command ⌘ + , — or just use your code editor like code ~/.hyper.js or subl ~/.hyper.js or vim ~/.hyper.js.
  2. Add shades-of-purple-hyper to your plugins array. Kind of like this:
plugins: [

— Done!!! 🙌

⚠️ TIP: If you want your terminal to look exactly like that, then I can share the fact that I use ZSH, with Powerline fonts in iTerm2 for which I created a Shades of Purple ZSH theme as well. You might want to add that after installing ZSH.

My Configuration File

To add a cool border, or some of the plugins that I use, you can checkout my configuration below and add this to your ~/.hyper.js config file
