Solarized Dark - Patched

Some applications assume the ANSI color code 8 is a gray color. Solarized treats this code as equal to the background. This theme is for people who prefer the former. See issues #59, #62, and #63 for more information.

Credits

The schemes Novel, Espresso, Grass, Homebrew, Ocean, Pro, Man Page, Red Sands, and Terminal Basic are ports of the schemes of the same name included with the Mac Terminal application. All of Terminal's schemes have now been ported, with the exception of "Solid Colors" (random backgrounds, which iTerm doesn't support) and "Aerogel" (which is hideous).

Credits for all other themes are listed in CREDITS.md

If there are other color schemes you'd like to see included, drop me a line!

Terminator color schemes

Edit your Terminator configuration file (located in: $HOME/.config/terminator/config) and add the configurations for the theme(s) you'd like to use the [profiles] section. The terminator/ directory contains the config snippets you'll need. Just paste the configurations into the [profiles] sections, and you're good to go!

At a minimum, this is all you need. You can customize the fonts and other aspects as well, if you wish. See the Terminator documentation for more details.

An example config file that includes the code snippet for the Symfonic theme would look like this:

[global_config]
    [keybindings]
    [profiles]
      [[default]]
        palette = "#1a1a1a:#f4005f:#98e024:#fa8419:#9d65ff:#f4005f:#58d1eb:#c4c5b5:#625e4c:#f4005f:#98e024:#e0d561:#9d65ff:#f4005f:#58d1eb:#f6f6ef"
        background_image = None
        use_system_font = False
        cursor_color = "#f6f7ec"
        foreground_color = "#c4c5b5"
        font = Source Code Pro Light 11
        background_color = "#1a1a1a"
      [[Symfonic]]
        palette = "#000000:#dc322f:#56db3a:#ff8400:#0084d4:#b729d9:#ccccff:#ffffff:#1b1d21:#dc322f:#56db3a:#ff8400:#0084d4:#b729d9:#ccccff:#ffffff"
        background_color = "#000000"
        cursor_color = "#dc322f"
        foreground_color = "#ffffff"
        background_image = None
    [layouts]
      [[default]]
        [[[child1]]]
          type = Terminal
          parent = window0
        [[[window0]]]
          type = Window
          parent = ""
    [plugins]

Konsole color schemes

Copy the themes from the konsole directory to $HOME/.config/konsole (in some versions of KDE, the theme directory may be located at $HOME/.local/share/konsole), restart Konsole and choose your new theme from the profile preferences window.

If you want to make the themes available to all users, copy the .colorscheme files to /usr/share/konsole.

Terminal color schemes

Just double click on selected theme in terminal directory

PuTTY color schemes

New Session Method

This method creates a new blank session with JUST colors set properly.

Download the appropriate colorscheme.reg file and import the registry changes by right-clicking and choosing Merge. Choose "Yes" when prompted if you're sure. Color scheme will show up as a new PuTTY session with all defaults except entries at Window > Colours > Adjust the precise colours PuTTY displays.

Modify Session Method

This method modifies an existing session and changes JUST the color settings.

Download the appropriate colorscheme.reg file. Open the file with a text editor and change the color scheme portion (Molokai below) to match the session you want to modify:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\Sessions\Molokai]
- CHANGE TO (EXAMPLE) -
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\Sessions\[email protected]]

NOTE: Some special characters will need to be changed to their Percent-encoded representation (IE, Space as %20). To quickly find the right session name view the top-level entries at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\Sessions\ with regedit.exe.

Other PuTTY Recommendations

Window > Apprearance
 Font: Consolas, bold, 14-point
 Font quality:
  ( ) Antialiased     ( ) Non-Antialiased
  (O) ClearType       ( ) Default
Window > Colours

Xfce Terminal color schemes

Copy the colorschemes folder to ~/.local/share/xfce4/terminal/ and restart Terminal.

FreeBSD vt color schemes

Append your favourite theme from freebsd_vt/ to /boot/loader.conf or /boot/loader.conf.local and reboot.

MobaXterm color schemes

Copy the theme content from mobaxterm/ and paste the content to your MobaXterm.ini in the corresponding place ([Colors]).

LXTerminal color schemes

Copy the theme content from lxterminal/ and paste the content to your lxterminal in the corresponding place ([general]).

Visual Studio Code color schemes

Copy the theme content from vscode/ and paste the content to your UserSettings.json.

Windows Terminal color schemes

Copy the theme content from windowsterminal/ and paste the content to your profiles.json in the corresponding place ("schemes"). Then specify the name of your theme by "colorScheme" in "profiles".

Alacritty color schemes

Copy the theme content from alacritty/ and paste the content to your alacritty config file.

Previewing color schemes

preview.rb is a simple script that allows you to preview the color schemes without having to import them. It parses .itermcolors files and applies the colors to the current session using iTerm's proprietary escape codes. As noted in the linked page, it doesn't run on tmux or screen.

# Apply AdventureTime scheme to the current session
tools/preview.rb schemes/AdventureTime.itermcolors

# Apply the schemes in turn.
# - Press (almost) any key to advance; hit CTRL-C or ESC to stop
# - Press the delete key to go back
