Re: mintty-colors: changing colors in mintty on the fly

As a weekend project, I put together mintty-colors [1], which is a
python package for changing color schemes in mintty on the fly.

I don't know if there already is such a function packaged in cygwin,
this was really just recreational. But if someone else finds it useful
- great!
This is certainly useful, although with colour themes in the form of escape sequences (some minttyrc colour schemes are also distributed in this form), a simple `cat` would also do the trick. A simple shell script could do the listing or transform formats on-the-fly. Anyway, mintty now has its own feature to load a colour scheme (option ThemeFile, also in the Options menu, but not from the command line) where colour schemes are kept in a dedicated subdirectory. It would be good to integrate your script with this, so it's not necessary to duplicate the schemes in two repositories.
Kind regards,
