  -a "alpha"            Set terminal background transparency. *Only works in
  -b background         Custom background color to use.
  --backend [backend]   Which color backend to use. Use 'wal --backend' to

  --theme [/path/to/file or theme_name], -f [/path/to/file or theme_name]
                        Which colorscheme file to use. Use 'wal --theme' to
                        list builtin themes.
  --iterative           When pywal is given a directory as input and this flag
                        is used: Go through the images in order instead of
  --saturate 0.0-1.0    Set the color saturation.
  --preview             Print the current color palette.
  --vte                 Fix text-artifacts printed in VTE terminals.

viscolourchanger is a program to dynamically change the colourscheme used by cli-visualizer (herein referred to as 'vis'), as generated by pywal.

##Setup and Configuration ###Initial Setup To make vis recognise the generated colour scheme, it is necessary to add the line


to the vis config file located at $HOME/.config/vis.config.

(It is also helpful to add the line


in order to see a broader range of colours in the base vis config, but this is just personal taste and far more complex configurations are possible.)

###Further Suggestions That is all there is to viscolourchanger itself, and in absence of something further, pywal and viscolourchanger run separately. However, it is useful to make a wrapper for pywal. A simple wrapper which I have written is located here, and will allow for on-the-fly colour changes as pywal is run. To use this wal wrapper, you will need to have viscolourchanger in your $PATH.
