Amber VT Override
This is a derivative of the Modern override but with several color differences reminiscent of the Digital Equipment Corportation PDP-8/I minicomputer.
All of the
<pre> text boxes are styled to mimic an amber monochrome
terminal. This is an anachronism, since teletypes were the main terminal
type used with the PDP-8/I, released in 1968, whereas amber glass
terminals were more of a mid-1980s thru mid-1990s sort of thing.
Nevertheless, I think it’s a nice visual match: if such terminals were
available at the time the PDP-8/I was release, I think DEC would have
shipped them as the default terminal.
This skin demonstrates the multiple override technique: see the
@import directives in the
*.scss files in this directory. Notice
that some are at the top of the file, and some at the end. See the prior
link for the reasoning behind all of this.
Because of this “override of an override” technique, most of the changes
you’re likely to want to make to this skin are actually in lower levels:
Modern, the Fossil default base skin, or in the
layer. If you’re looking for variables to adjust this override
and can’t find something suitable, look deeper: chances are good that
the skin is already extensible in the way you wish, if only by passing
--define-late/L flags to Inskinerator.
