If you are a best text editor —a.k.a
Vim, user, and you want to use our
“active-inactive pane focus” feature that we implemented for tmux panes in this
tmux active focus post
vim/nvim as well, you need to make some tweak in your
The picture above shows how the inactive panes are slightly greyed, and that the border of the active panes is blue.
Active-inactive pane colors config
In order to apply active-inactive window style to Vim panes, it is necessary to
check the line in your
colorscheme.vim file that starts with
hi Normal. Or
The output should be like this:
Normal xxx ctermfg=145 ctermbg=234 guifg=#ABB2BF guibg=#1c1c1c
We need to update these
background settings to use our
highlight Normal ctermfg=145 guifg=#ABB2BF
or set to
highlight Normal ctermfg=145 ctermbg=none guifg=#ABB2BF guibg=none
I prefer latter since it is more verbose. Add this setting to your
colorscheme xxx line and source it.
It is very important adding after, otherwise will not give any effect.
