Ocean theme for Terminal.app

This is a quick Terminal.app profile (color scheme) for OS X based on the base16 Ocean theme. I couldn't find one in the official repo, so I hastily made my own.

A little about base16:

Base16 provides carefully chosen syntax highlighting and a default set of sixteen colors suitable for a wide range of applications.


If you like this theme, be sure to check out the editor color schemes and Spacegray UI theme for Atom and Sublime Text.


Check out https://github.com/fabianperez/ocean-dark-iterm for an iTerm version.


  1. Download this repo.
  2. Open up Terminal, go to Preferences, then Profiles.
  3. In the bottom left, click the settings cog and select Import.... Navigate to the download file and open it.
  4. Lastly, set it as your default by selecting the new profile and clicking the Default button.

Terminal prompt

Curious about my Terminal prompt (the arrow, path, and Git info)? Snag it from my

in my mdo/config repo. Here's what you'd need—just copy, paste, and relaunch your Terminal.
