In addition to what was asked above, is there also a way for (neo)vim background colour to change when the terminal background colour is changed?

It's running in OSX in the default terminal app.

    are you running neovim inside a terminal like gnome-terminal/konsole/iterm2 ? Sep 19, 2016 at 19:25

The simplest answer is to use colorscheme=default. This assumes changing the other colors is acceptable.


You can check Seiya plugin, this one works for me. Check that for NeoVim one option is needed and in any case, install first and check with the command SeiyaEnable first.
