Usage

There are three modes of operation:

./base24.py update
./base24.py build
./base24.py inject

Basic Usage

If you just want to build all base24 colorschemes and then pick out the ones you need, simply run:

./base24.py update
./base24.py build

Once the process is finished, you can find all colorschemes in a folder named output located in the current working directory.

For a more detailed explanation of the individual commands, read on.

Update

Downloads all base24/ base16 schemes and templates to the current working directory. The source files, i.e. the files pointing to the scheme and template repositories

will also be updated by default. If you want to use your own versions of these files (to exclude specific repositories, for example), you can prevent the builder from updating the source files by using the -c/--custom option.

You can use -v/--verbose for more detailed output.

Build

Builds base24 colorschemes for all schemes and templates. This requires the directory structure and files created by the update operation to be present in the working directory. This operation accepts four parameters:

  • -s/--scheme restricts building to specific schemes

    Can be specified more than once. Each argument must match a scheme. Wildcards can be used but must be escaped properly so they are not expanded by the shell.

  • -t/--template restricts building to specific templates

    Can be specified more than once. Each argument must correspond to a folder name in the templates directory.

  • -o/--output specifies a path where built colorschemes will be placed

    If this option is not specified, an "output" folder in the current working directory will be created and used.

  • -v/--verbose increases verbosity

    With this option specified the builder prints out the name of each scheme as it's built.

Example:

./base24.py build -t dunst -s atelier-heath-light -o /tmp/output

Inject

This operation provides an easier way to quickly insert a specific colorscheme into one or more config files. In order for the builder to locate the necessary files, this command relies on the folder structure created by the update command. The command accepts two parameters:

  • -s/--scheme specifies the scheme you wish to inject

    Refers to the scheme that should be inserted. You can use wildcards and the same restrictions as with update apply. A pattern that matches more than one scheme will cause an error.

  • -f/--file specifies the file(s) into which you wish the scheme to be inserted

    Can be specified more than once. Each argument must be specified as a path to a config file that features proper injection markers (see below).

You will need to prepare your configuration files so that the script knows where to insert the colorscheme. This is done by including two lines in the file

# %%base24_template: TEMPLATE_NAME##SUBTEMPLATE_NAME %%

Everything in-between these two lines will be replaced with the colorscheme.

# %%base24_template_end%%

Both lines can feature arbitrary characters before the first two percentage signs. This is so as to accomodate different commenting styles. Both lines need to end exactly as demonstrated above, however. "TEMPLATE_NAME" and "SUBTEMPLATE_NAME" are the exception to this. Replace TEMPLATE_NAME with the name of the template you wish to insert, for example "gnome-terminal". This must correspond to a folder in the templates directory. Replace SUBTEMPLATE_NAME with the name of the subtemplate as it is defined at the top level of the template's config.yaml file (see file.md <https://github.com/chriskempson/base16/blob/master/file.md>_ for details), for example "default-256". If you omit the subtemplate name (don't omit "##" though), "default" is assumed.

Specify the name of the scheme you wish to inject with the -s option. Use the -f option for each file into which you want to inject the scheme.

As an example, here's the command I use to globally change the color scheme in all applications that support it:

./base24.py inject -s ocean -f ~/.gtkrc-2.0.mine -f ~/.config/dunst/dunstrc -f ~/.config/i3/config -f ~/.config/termite/config -f ~/.config/zathura/zathurarc

Exit

The program exits with exit code 1 if it encountered a general error and with 2 if one or more build or update tasks produced a warning or an error.
