First thing that needs to be done is how to manage terminal theming. But for the full experience (inactive window dimming) this is an important first step.
What's important here is setting index color 18.
Follow the instructions for installing alacritty-shell
Copy a 256 color theme from alacritty-themes into alacritty.yml file.
Add the following snippet to
NOTE if using alacritty-shell use
colour247 instead of
fg=colour2is terminal green
bg=colour18is using the index color set from the theming above. It is important that colour18 is a lighter/darker shade of the background color. Usually by about 5-10 lightness values.
set -g pane-active-border-style fg=colour2,bg=colour18 set -g pane-border-style bg=colour18 set-window-option -g window-active-style bg=terminal set-window-option -g window-style bg=colour18
also using walh vim theme for dimming with vim screens.
