Base16 color schemes (xterm and Vim)

Base16 is a set of color schemes, available for various applications. I like that it makes it possible to have the same color scheme in my terminals (xterm) and in Vim and to switch color scheme very easily (by issuing a single command in the terminal like base16_classic-dark).

I just followed the instructions in Scott Pierce’s Base16 Shell blog post.

I also have this line in my ~/.Xresources:

XTerm*termName: xterm-256color

Base16_pop and base16_pico are two of my favorite Base16 schemes.

You can see the list of the base16 schemes with this command:

alias | grep "^alias base16_"|sed "s/=.\+$//"
