default_cursor_style = "SteadyBlock"

Specifies the default cursor style. Various escape sequences can override the default style in different situations (eg: an editor can change it depending on the mode), but this value controls how the cursor appears when it is reset to default. The default is SteadyBlock.

Acceptable values are SteadyBlock, BlinkingBlock, SteadyUnderline, BlinkingUnderline, SteadyBar, and BlinkingBar.

return {
  default_cursor_style = "SteadyBlock",

Using a blinking style puts more load on the graphics subsystem. animation_fps can be used to tune the frame rate used for easing in the blink animation.
