To use this theme, you can set it as the cli.theme option. Note that this is in addition to the builtin theme, which is still in effect.

Usage

simple_theme(dark = getOption("cli.theme_dark", "auto"))

Arguments

dark

Whether the theme should be optimized for a dark background. If "auto", then cli will try to detect this. Detection usually works in recent RStudio versions, and in iTerm on macOS, but not on other platforms.

Details

options(cli.theme = cli::simple_theme())

and then CLI apps started after this will use it as the default theme. You can also use it temporarily, in a div element:

cli_div(theme = cli::simple_theme())

Showcase

show <- cli_div(theme = cli::simple_theme())

cli_h1("Heading 1")
cli_h2("Heading 2")
cli_h3("Heading 3")

cli_par()
cli_alert_danger("Danger alert")
cli_alert_warning("Warning alert")
cli_alert_info("Info alert")
cli_alert_success("Success alert")
cli_alert("Alert for starting a process or computation",
  class = "alert-start")
cli_end()

cli_text("Packages and versions: {.pkg cli} {.version 1.0.0}.")
cli_text("Time intervals: {.timestamp 3.4s}")

cli_text("{.emph Emphasis} and  {.strong strong emphasis}")

cli_text("This is a piece of code: {.code sum(x) / length(x)}")
cli_text("Function names: {.fn cli::simple_theme}")

cli_text("Files: {.file /usr/bin/env}")
cli_text("URLs: {.url https://r-project.org}")
