Custom Terminal guide

Here are some color schemes for you to try or use as the basis of your own designs.

Installing schemes

Copy the JSON from the "schemes" section into the correct section in settings.json, for example:

Before:

"schemes:" [],

After:

 "schemes": [
            {
                "name": "Retro",
                "background": "#000000",
                "black": "#00ff00",
                "blue": "#00ff00",
                "brightBlack": "#00ff00",
                "brightBlue": "#00ff00",
                "brightCyan": "#00ff00",
                "brightGreen": "#00ff00",
                "brightPurple": "#00ff00",
                "brightRed": "#00ff00",
                "brightWhite": "#00ff00",
                "brightYellow": "#00ff00",
                "cyan": "#00ff00",
                "foreground": "#00ff00",
                "green": "#00ff00",
                "purple": "#00ff00",
                "red": "#00ff00",
                "white": "#00ff00",
                "yellow": "#00ff00"
            }
        ]

Then add the profile-specific section, for example:

Before:

{
    "guid": "{234ab24f-34dd-ff3-ade434aad345}",
    "name": "Command Prompt",
    "commandline": "cmd.exe",
    "hidden": false
}

After:

{
    "guid": "{234ab24f-34dd-ff3-ade434aad345}",
    "name": "Command Prompt",
    "commandline": "cmd.exe",
    "hidden": false,
    "colorScheme" : "Retro",
    "cursorColor" : "#FFFFFF",
    "cursorShape": "filledBox",
    "fontSize" : 16,
    "padding" : "5, 5, 5, 5",
    "tabTitle" : "Command Prompt",
    "fontFace": "PxPlus IBM VGA8",
    "experimental.retroTerminalEffect": true
}
