Base16 Builder is a nimble command-line tool that generates themes for your favourite programs. See it in action below:
Base16 Builder is easy to use. All you have to do is supply a color
dark). Base16 Builder will use the information you provide to generate a theme and write it to stdout.
Because Base16 Builder writes to stdout, it's possible to pipe the theme anywhere you like. In the above screencast, the theme is piped to a new file called "theme", but this could just as well have been a configuration file like ".Xresources".
You don't have to be savvy with Unix pipelines to enjoy Base16 Builder. If you'd prefer, you can just copy the output with your mouse
This project aims to rejuvenate Chris Kempson's original tool by incorporating some fresh features:
