Getting colorschemes

  • You can get colorschemes from aaron-williamson/base16-alacritty

    REPO="https://github.com/aaron-williamson/base16-alacritty.git"
    DEST="$HOME/.aarors-williamson-colorschemes"
    
    # Get colorschemes 
    git clone $REPO $DEST
    # Create symlink at default colors location (optional)
    ln -s "$DEST/colors" "$HOME/.config/alacritty/colors"
    
  • You can also get colorschemes from from eendroroy/alacritty-theme

    REPO=https://github.com/eendroroy/alacritty-theme.git
    DEST="$HOME/.eendroroy-colorschemes"
    # Get colorschemes
    git clone $REPO $DEST
    # Create symlink at default colors location (optional)
    ln -s "$DEST/themes" "$HOME/.config/alacritty/colors"
    

Sync with vim/neo-vim

If you are using base16 colorschemes from base16-vim plugin, you can use the -V argument to automatically generate ~/.vimrc_background file when you change alacritty colorscheme. You will need to source this file in your vimrc to load the same colorscheme in vim.

Add this in your .vimrc file:

if filereadable(expand("~/.vimrc_background"))
  let base16colorspace=256          " Remove this line if not necessary
  source ~/.vimrc_background
endif

When you change your alacritty colorscheme, you simply need to source ~/.vimrc_background or your vimrc. If you are a neo-vim user, ~/.vimrc_background will be automatically sourced.

Examples

bash/zsh aliases

Add this in your .zshrc or .bashrc file:

LIGHT_COLOR='base16-gruvbox-light-soft.yml'
DARK_COLOR='base16-gruvbox-dark-soft.yml'

alias day="alacritty-colorscheme -V apply $LIGHT_COLOR"
alias night="alacritty-colorscheme -V apply $DARK_COLOR"
alias toggle="alacritty-colorscheme -V toggle $LIGHT_COLOR $DARK_COLOR"

i3wm/sway bindings

Add this in your i3 config file:

set $light_color base16-gruvbox-light-soft.yml
set $dark_color base16-gruvbox-dark-soft.yml

# Toggle between light and dark colorschemes
bindsym $mod+Shift+n exec alacritty-colorscheme -V toggle $light_color $dark_color

# Toggle between all available colorschemes
bindsym $mod+Shift+m exec alacritty-colorscheme -V toggle
