lab 96 - acme color schemes

NAME

lab 96 - acme color schemes

NOTES

The inferno version of acme always contained some code to configure the acme color scheme, but I'm not sure if it always, if ever worked.

I modified the code a little in acme-sac to make the color configuration work. And I came up with a few new schemes.

The schemes are checked into acme-sac under /acme/color. To use a different scheme add a line like this to your $home/lib/profile

run /acme/color/evening

Running the "evening" scheme will make acme look like this.

The configuration files sets a few environment variables of the following form:

acme-fg-text-0='#000000'

This sets the foreground text color in the body text to black. It's possible to mix two colors, as for the standard acme background.

acme-bg-text-0='#FFFFAA/#FFFFFF'

Another simple scheme is "bw" for black and white.

There is also a file /acme/color/standard for the default acme color scheme which can be copied tweaked.
