Hi Asciinema —
First, thanks for this terrific piece of technology—I love it!
I’m trying to better understand how the colors displayed in my terminal during recording relate to those that are used during playback. From my limited experience so far, I’m finding that some colors that I’ve set (e.g., those used to highlight strings or comments in emacs) tend to be preserved during playback, while others (e.g., the one set in PS1 for entering commands, or for keywords in emacs) are not. I understand that the themes used by asciinema need to be able to influence which colors are used during playback, but am having trouble understanding why some choices I make seem to stick, but not others. Or maybe more to the point: I’m having trouble with color decisions I’ve made in my local environment looking good in the asciinema themes (and am not certain I want to go so far as to invent a new asciinema theme myself).
Related: I tend to use a terminal with a white background, but have been unable to find a theme that preserves that. I thought when I was cycling through the five themes the other day, I did find one, but today they all seem to have dark backgrounds other than solarized-light (?).
Thanks for any help here,
