viscolourchanger is a program to dynamically change the colourscheme used by cli-visualizer (herein referred to as ‘vis’), as generated by pywal.

Setup and Configuration

Initial Setup

To make vis recognise the generated colour scheme, it is necessary to add the line


to the vis config file located at $HOME/.config/vis.config.

(It is also helpful to add the line


in order to see a broader range of colours in the base vis config, but this is just personal taste and far more complex configurations are possible.)

Further Suggestions

That is all there is to viscolourchanger itself, and in absence of something further, pywal and viscolourchanger run separately. However, it is useful to make a wrapper for pywal. A simple wrapper which I have written is located here, and will allow for on-the-fly colour changes as pywal is run. To use this wal wrapper, you will need to have viscolourchanger in your $PATH.
