wezterm.color.load_base16_scheme(file_name)

Since: 20220807-113146-c2fee766

Loads a yaml file in base16 format and returns it as a wezterm color scheme.

Note that wezterm ships with the base16 color schemes that were referenced via base16-schemes-source when the release was prepared so this function is primarily useful if you want to import a base16 color scheme that either isn't listed from the main list, or that was created after your version of wezterm was built.

This function returns a tuple of the the color definitions and the metadata.

For example, given a yaml file with these contents:

scheme: "Cupcake"
author: "Chris Kempson (http://chriskempson.com)"
base00: "fbf1f2"
base01: "f2f1f4"
base02: "d8d5dd"
base03: "bfb9c6"
base04: "a59daf"
base05: "8b8198"
base06: "72677E"
base07: "585062"
base08: "D57E85"
base09: "EBB790"
base0A: "DCB16C"
base0B: "A3B367"
base0C: "69A9A7"
base0D: "7297B9"
base0E: "BB99B4"
base0F: "BAA58C"

Then:

> colors, metadata = wezterm.color.load_base16_scheme("/tmp/cupcake.yaml")
> print(colors)
