Colorizer Say Thanks!

A plugin to color colornames and codes

screenshot of the plugin

This plugin is based on the css_color plugin by Nikolaus Hofer. The idea is to highlight color names and codes in the same color that they represent.

The plugin understands the W3-Colors (used for CSS files for example), the Color names from the X11 Window System and also codes in hex notation, like #FF0000 (which represents Red in the RGB color system). Additionally, it supports the CSS color specifications, e.g. rgb(RR,GG,BB) color representation in either absolute or percentage values and also the HVL Color representation like hvl(H,V,L).

It works best in the gui version of Vim, but the plugin also supports 256 and 88 color terminals and translates the colors to those supported by the terminal. 16 and 8 color terminals should work theoretically too, but hasn't been widely tested. Note, that translating the colors to the terminal might impose a performance penalty, depending on the terminal type and the number of matches in the file.

For terminals that are capable of displaying true colors, the plugin will also use true colors, if the 'termguicolors' option is set.

Also, it can highlight terminal color sequences correctly and will hide those terminal ansi sequences, so that the file can be read like it would be shown in the terminal. Here is a screen capture for coloring ANSI terminal sequences: Terminal Coloring.
