Themes

Color

You can specify a color theme, that will be picked up by zellij in the following way:

themes:
  default:
    fg: [0,0,0]
    bg: [0,0,0]
    black: [0,0,0]
    red: [0,0,0]
    green: [0,0,0]
    yellow: [0,0,0]
    blue: [0,0,0]
    magenta: [0,0,0]
    cyan: [0,0,0]
    white: [0,0,0]
    orange: [0,0,0]

for truecolor, or:

themes:
  default:
    fg: 0
    bg: 0
    black: 0
    red: 0
    green: 0
    yellow: 0
    blue: 0
    magenta: 0
    cyan: 0
    white: 0
    orange: 0

for 256 color.

If the theme is called default, then zellij will pick it on startup. To specify a different theme, run zellij with:

zellij options --theme [NAME]

or put the name in the configuration file with theme: [NAME].

Here are some example themes.

UI

Certain non-color aspects of Zellij's interface can also be customized.

Rounded Pane Corners

If your font has support for rounded corners (most do), then you can enable them by adding the following to your configuration file:

ui:
  pane_frames:
    rounded_corners: true

Zellij should pick up this change automatically next time the config is loaded.
