Apparently I'm living in 1995 for not wanting an RGB puke show in my terminal emulator. Since when is it wrong (or not enough) with using the standard 16 colours?

@hund I mean.. I like having 256-color support because it allows me to show *different* colors, I don't necessarily need more than 16 tho

@hund @metalune personally, if my terminal emulator doesn't have true color it's getting replaced. e.g. Ive recently gotten interested in alacritty.

@hund i just enabled 16 bit color in my terminal emulator. It’s nice to be able to match color schemes elsewhere like in text editors and so forth


I'm generally OK as long as there are at least 2 (preferably contrasting) colours in my terminal emulator :)
