Kitty

Project: https://sw.kovidgoyal.net/kitty/

Setup

No additional plugins are required to control kitty themes but there is a tiny amount of setup:

  1. Split your dark mode and light mode themes into separate .conf files, or skip this step and use pre-defined themes from iTerm2-Color-Schemes: ~/.config/kitty/{dark,light}.thcon.conf
  2. Use the paths to those files in thcon.toml (examples below)
  3. Replace the color settings in your main kitty.conf with includeĀ ~/.local/share/thcon/kitty.conf

In other words:

 # kitty.conf

-background #002b36
-foreground #839496
-# ...
+include ~/.local/share/thcon/kitty.conf
# ~/.config/kitty/dark.thcon.conf

background #002b36
foreground #839496
# ...
# ~/.config/kitty/light.thcon.conf

background #fdf6e3
foreground #657b83
# ...
