Cool themes for Cool Retro Term

They’re actually called ‘profiles’ in Cool Retro Term. Oh, and in case you weren’t aware, this is Cool Retro Term …

That was my personal intro for this beautiful, little beast of a terminal app. Sorry to say, it’s only for Linux and Mac OSX. No worries though, Window’s command prompt looks abysmally old already!

So where are them themes?

Oh yeah! So I’ve finally exported several of my own profiles and posted them to GitHub. They’re as follows:


The one I’ve used for some neat, little asciinema recordings.

How do I use these themes?

Easy. Just:

  1. Right-click the “view raw” link under any of the theme codes above, then select “Save target as…“.
  2. Save that file on your computer.
  3. Open CRT (wicked cool acronym, eh?) and go to Edit > Settings > Import then select that file to import it.

Feel free to ask any questions. Cheers!
