    It would be great if a colour could be assigned to a host and then that colour is then used for the host icons and text wherever it is shown.

    Being able to override just a part of a theme per host would be great too so that a general theme can be set (or a default one used) but then alter the terminal font colour for development, staging and production servers, for example.

    i love ui&design&icon from termius;
    but it would be great to mark keywords colorful,just like hostname ,'error' or 'exception' in log,the command executed etc;
    the font color in 4.7.1 is going to make me blind;i really wish termius can equip this funciton in the future;

    Please add the ability to edit the colors in the themes so i can make my own theme.

    I'd like to think my eyesight isn't bad, but that'd be false. I wear glasses. Each individual has their own visual strengths and weaknesses. Color perception is one of those. Sadly, some people are colorblind.

    Termius Dark doesn't even define yellow for some reason; it's white. It's otherwise a fairly nice theme. The blue is way too dark in my opinion, but that's true by default in Putty as well. At least I can change that in Putty. No magenta either; it's red.

    I agree. The ability to customize all the colours for a theme is sorely missing.

    I agree. The blue in "Pro" theme is hard to see and it hurts the eyes. It would be best to have configurable themes.

    I am running Termius in Chrome OS on my Chromebook and the blue background messes with my eyes. I can't even see the directory name that I am in. Is there any way I can change this. Other terminal shells just have a black background that is easy to read. I like the app a lot. It works well, does what I want it to do and I want keep using it but it is eye test every time I use it.

    you dont really need to threatened them in this way either, i understand that termius is still young if we compare with the old yet powerful PUTTY, but i believe they can provide a better functionality as well as nice UI and mobile support. First thing first is that they need to know what are the people using these days, why they use them, then try to dominate the competitors. This is one of the way by getting feedback.

    To be honest, even now i still dont use Temius as much as putty or mobaxterm, but i still following and see if they have some interesting improvements over that can persuade me to move over in the end

    I join Hans , I use termius on my android device so long time using putty I'm thinking well I'll look what are the other ssh clients available , I saw YOU were here termius and the main problem I have to use your product is the same Hans said, in putty I can change everything but the UI is not very sexy but no matter and this system of theme you have , it's a good idea but please more police, colour of police are a choice you NEED to add!!

    I'm still trying other ssh clients or continue to use putty (I wait your answer before uninstall termius)

  • Hans Yulian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    no, that one is applied to every session of the terminal, what i need is in like in the putty, under options:

    window -> colours, you will be able to set different colors, for example foreground and background, and this is per configuration. so this is per configuration basis, not per application basis, thus i can have a visual feedback of my production server, as i set it to red color, then development server is purple color, so it reduce the possibility of me to be mistaken of environment

  • Hans Yulian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    In putty, you can set specific configuration's back color and font color, this will help differentiate different server based on the color that we set, for example, i have these configuration with my putty for font colors:

    personal cloud: cyan
    working development server X: light purple
    working production server X: red
    working production server Y: blood red


    So, when i use multiple session of ssh, i will not mistakenly do certain action that i should do in dev, but i do it in prod server instead, as this can be very dangerous

    Having the ability to config style would be a huge improvement over whats available, or at least just include a .css file or such outside of the application, with a "custom" option to include it or override existing ones.

    I notice in some of the terminal themes the cursor is not the same colour as the fonts. For example, the "Pro" theme the fonts are white, but the cursor is black. Which at times it hard view. Would it be possible to fix this so the colour of the cursor is the same of the colour of the font?
