Debug output is unreadable using solarized dark color scheme in Terminal #52

It looks like your color scheme is meant for solarized light, because when using solarized dark, the debug text is the same color as the background.

ya, I am using ubuntu and also using this color scheme and it is also not work.


just find out the problem.
at the solarized color scheme

at here:
"\u001b[90m" this value is the same as the background color
after my test, the colors can have better visual is 31-37,91-97
so, need to change the "\u001b[90m" to "\u001b[91m" then it will work


Have you tested against Solarized Light and Dark? Are your suggested changes pleasant defaults in both?


here is the screenshot on my end: ubuntu terminal solarized scheme

u can check out my fork: ( I also change some code to make the code better understand )


actually the "\u001b[90m" means the "color palette 9" u can hover on the color palette block, will show up the tooltip of the color palette.
then u will find out the "\u001b[90m" just the same color as the background, that is why we can not read the text

This is a controversial change as well, but it seems to be
wanted by the community, and usability is more important to me
than looks, so why not…
