Changes ANSI colors in Terminal.app

Overview

Problem: The default blue and red colors in the Terminal.app are nearly invisible on a CRT.
  • Solution: HexEdit the hard-coded color values in the binary...
  • Better Solution: Add an ANSI color picker to the application.

TerminalColors is a SIMBL plugin that patches Apple's Terminal.app to add a color picker to allow the user to edit the ANSI colors.

Basically, a new inspector pane is added which enables you to select colors for all the individual ANSI colors. Why is this useful? The default blue and red colors used by the Terminal.app are nearly invisible to the human eye on a non-LCD screen. At that point, it seemed only right to provide functionality to cater to the potential whims regarding the other colors in the palette.

What's new in TerminalColors

Version 0.2.1:
  • rebuilt as a universal binary
  • added a metapackage installer for the plugin

I've been using the last version for a long time now... and it makes ls -G actually tolerable for my terminal (I prefer partially transparent black BG with silver fg)... gotta love it!

Awesome program, I used it to fix Terminal so that it rendered the dark gray ansii color as dark gray and not black. w00t! It crashed the term the first time I tried to use it, but I don't know if that was its fault or the terminal's. It worked fine after that, and has been stable since.
