When we created the example workspace, the file ~/.config/polylith/config.edn was also created:
{:color-mode "dark"
:thousand-separator ","
:empty-character "·"}
For Windows systems the color-mode is set to none and for all other systems, dark will be used as default. Valid values are: none, light and dark.
In this documentation we have used the dark color schema, but we can switch to light by giving the color-mode parameter (or by updating ~/.config/polylith/config.edn):
poly info color-mode:light
...everything suddenly looks much brighter! The only difference between "light" and "dark" is that they use different codes for grey.
If we switch back to dark background and select none:
poly info color-mode:none
...things are now displayed without colors.
To refresh our memory, this is what it looked like using the dark color schema:
If you want to use the same colors in your terminal, here they are:
If the colors (f8eeb6, bfefc5, 77bcfc, e2aeff, cccccc, 24272b, ee9b9a) look familiar to you, it's because they are more or less stolen from the Borealis color schema! This color schema gives a really pleasant user experience when used from the text editor / IDE.
