    [Installation] [Getting Started] [Customization] [Wiki]

    ๐Ÿš€ This release of pywal contains some large changes and may very well break things for some users. Expect bugs and expect additional releases to fix them. The version has been bumped to 1.0.0 as I'm now happy with where pywal is feature-wise.

    โœ… The goal for the future is improving the schemes that pywal generates. Feel free to send me your wallpapers that generate subpar schemes and I'll use them in my testing data.

    Removal of -r

    The flag -r was removed as it was basically a glorified cat of the sequences file with 300ms of python overhead. The new recommended way to load the schemes is to replace wal -r with cat ~/.cache/wal/sequences.

    Removal of -t

    Yup! The -t flag to fix garbage in VTE terminals (termite, xfce4-terminal, gnome-terminal) is no longer needed. I've come up with a workaround that really shouldn't work but does. ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

    ๐Ÿ“œ The problem: The sequence \033[708;#000000\007 is unsupported by VTE and VTE's sequence parsing doesn't hide unknown sequences, instead it just displays them as plain text. We can't add an if statement or a check for VTE terminals as we're writing to each terminal via it's file descriptor. The only thing that is interpreted is escape sequences.

    โ†ช The workaround: The problem sequence is wrapped in a series of other escape sequences so that the unsupported sequence isn't echo'd to the terminal.

    How it works:

  • v0.7.5 Changes

    • ๐Ÿ›  Really fixed wallpaper bug.
  • v0.7.4 Changes

    December 19, 2017
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed wallpaper not changing in WMs.
