New htop color scheme

From a couple of weeks I use htop in my work to get a fast view about the system status, htop is an an interactive process viewer for Linux, similar to classic UNIX top, but with some enhancements, for example a more configurable view, the integration with strace and lsof programs and much more.

But (and it’s a big “but” for me) I really dislike the color scheme that use by default. htop comming with five color schemes, but I cannot find any beautifull one (from my personal point of view, of course), so I decided to make a new schema. I called “blueweb” theme (dont’ ask) ;). And here is the result:

htop with blueweb theme

You can download the patch file for the htop source code. And yes, unfortunately you need to patch the code.

Now my htop looks nice 🙂

  1. CRT.c was changed earlier this year, is your patch current to that or can you generate another patch file? Wanted to ask first since this post was 4 years old.

    1. Hi Wes,

      The patch should work like the first day 🙂 The changes in CRT does not affect the basic structure of the file, only add more offset in some lines.

      If something fail, please report it to me and I’ll try to fix it.

      Best regards!
