A shell script to change your shell's default ANSI colors but most importantly, colors 17 to 21 of your shell's 256 colorspace (if supported by your terminal). This script makes it possible honor the original bright colors of your shell (e.g. bright green is still green and so on) whilst providing the additional base16 colors to applications such as Vim.
- You want to use a
*.256.*variant of a Terminal theme designed to honor the original bright colors.
- You prefer to use a script instead of a terminal emulator theme to color your shell.
- You use this script to have different colorschemes appear on different SSH sessions.
git clone https://github.com/chriskempson/base16-shell.git ~/.config/base16-shell
Firstly, place the following lines in
BASE16_SHELL=$HOME/.config/base16-shell/ [ -n "$PS1" ] && [ -s $BASE16_SHELL/profile_helper.sh ] && eval "$($BASE16_SHELL/profile_helper.sh)"
Next, open a new shell and type
base16 followed by a tab to perform tab completion.
the profile_helper will update a ~/.vimrc_background file that will have your current the colorscheme, you just need to source this file in your vimrc: i.e. (remove the base16colorspace line if not needed)
if filereadable(expand("~/.vimrc_background")) let base16colorspace=256 source ~/.vimrc_background endif
config.fish place the following lines:
# Base16 Shell if status --is-interactive eval sh $HOME/.config/base16-shell/scripts/base16-default-dark.sh end
Run the included colortest script and check that your colour assignments appear correct. If your teminal does not support the setting of colours in within the 256 colorspace (e.g. Apple Terminal), colours 17 to 21 will appear blue.
If colortest is run without any arguments e.g.
./colortest the hex values shown will correspond to the default scheme. If you'd like to see the hex values for a particular scheme pass the file name of the theme as the arguement e.g.
