    The terminal theme in that screenshot is the builtin wezterm defaults which are a minor evolution of the "Wez" theme that I uploaded to a random wiki years and years ago, and which found its way into the collection and is now also available as a selectable theme in wezterm: (that's NOT the same as wezterm's defaults, but it is very similar!)
