I’ve used tomasr’s vim color scheme molokai for a long time now. Recently I decided that the default iTerm2 colors were a little lack luster, so I ported over the main colors from this theme into an iTerm2 theme.


If you don’t already have your iTerm2 colors configured or you’re looking for a change, you should definitely check out iTerm2-Color-Schemes, a GitHub repo by mbadolato filled with tons of themes he’s ported, collected, and been given.

You can see and install the Molokai theme there.


I don’t have too many good screenshots of this theme that aren’t vim because I’m actually using solarized dircolors for colorizing the output of my ls and related commands. However, there are still plenty of tools I use which resort to default ANSI colors to colorize their output, like git and brew. You can see a git log command along side a table of all ANSI color combinations resulting from this theme (this table can be a bit overwhelming: it’s best to just look at the first two columns to get an idea of what the colors really look like).
