Note to self: base16 color themes

Use base16-builder-python to build the base16 themes.

Clone the repo, create a virtual environment and install the undocumented requrements:

$ pip install pystache pyyaml aiofiles

Then download the current base16 colorschemes and output templates:

$ ./pybase16.py update

Now you can build all the application specific themes using

$ ./pybase16.py build

Delete color themes from iTerm2

Quitting iTerm, opening ~/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.iterm2.plist in Xcode. Color themes can be found under the key Custom Color Presets. Delete any you do not want.

iTerm2 color theme variants

Use the *-256.itermcolors files. They conserve compatibility with the standard ANSI color palette.
