Console color schemes

Posted on Wed 24 March 2010 in Technology • 1 min read

Console gives life to your cmd/powershell in windows. It features tabbed terminals/alpha and much more. If you’re used to screen/mrxvt/urxvt and those transparent terminals, you’ll feel at home with console.

Here are a bunch of colorschemes you can use in console. These are taken from phrakture‘s collection. Thanks Phrakture :)

Note that there is a difference in Unix colors and Win32 colors for the console. Here’s the mapping:

Unix 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 Win32 0 4 2 6 1 5 3 7 8 12 10 14 9 13 11 15

To use these open up console.xml and paste all the color schemes. Go to phrakture’s collection page and choose the one you love. Uncomment it in console.xml. Unfortunately I lost the script I used to get this done :(

Enjoy the colors! Click below to see the xml content.
