Fix vim color issues in tmux

  1. In .tmux.conf add:
     set -g default-terminal 'screen-256color'
     set -ga terminal-overrides ',xterm-256color:Tc'

    Where ‘xterm-256color’ should be whatever your $PATH is outside of tmux.

  2. In .vimrc add:
     set termguicolors
     let &t_8f = "\<Esc>[38;2;%lu;%lu;%lum"
     let &t_8b = "\<Esc>[48;2;%lu;%lu;%lum"

    This will tell vim the escape codes. It’s explained in :h xterm-true-color.

    tic tmux-256color.terminfo
  2. set -g default-terminal "tmux-256color" in .tmux.conf src
