Hey Guys πŸ™‹‍♂️, So nowadays I am more into terminal styling and there are a lot of tools available that can change the theme of our termux app and I have used almost all of them and also written posts about those theme changing tools. Today in this post I am going to tell you about one of the most awesome theme changing tool for termux in 2022. This is my favourite tool and better than all the previous tools that we have used. The installation is a little complicated, but I am going to give you a few simple steps to install it πŸ”₯. 


What is myTermux Theme?

myTermux is a custom configuration of termux application with different themes and colourful prompts. Almost everything about this configuration is unique, and the tool is really fun to interact with. myTermux have a lot of features like command Validation where if you type a right command it will be shown in green colour and if it's wrong the command will be red. It will also auto suggested you the files and paths based on your previous use.

With myTermux theme you see a really colourful UI and the experience is totally different from raw termux. myTermux is a person configuration of Termux by mayTermux, and you can check out the complete project here.

Now if you see an error saying  something about screen size, you will also see that script is telling you to zoom out, make sure to make the text in your screen to look small by pinching your screen inside, it is same as zooming out from a photo.

Zoom out and then type this command again if you see the same error then zoom out more, and ones the size of your screen is small enough the script will be executed.

Conclusion:

myTermux is my favourite configuration of termux till now, all the colours and prompts are totally different from previous themes that we have used. The design it totally Morden and make the experience of using termux really better. The default setup is actually best but if you want to change anything specific like font, colour, or even the entire look of the shell you can do that with a single command.  The installation can be a little tricky but if you are facing any issue make sure you comment and if multiple people are facing the same issue I will make a YouTube video on it. For now, enjoy your new theme, share your experiences and as always, stay ethical πŸ‘Ύ.
