Hypest for Hyper
A beautiful and minimal macOS theme for Hyper — with vibrancy, light and dark modes, and theming for several popular Hyper plugins.
If you are switching from another Hyper theme you may need to relaunch the app for Hypest to fully theme the window.

Issues with selection colors when vibrancy is enabled
There is a known issue in the Xterm.js engine where selection colors appear to
render as opaque blocks with invisible text if the
background has transparency.
There is a known issue on the Hyper
repository and an open issue
on the Xterm.js repo but unfortunately no fixes for the issue as it stands.
If you're just looking to solve pasted text selection for zsh shells there is a workaround for that at least, left in a comment on the Hyper issue. Run the following command to disable the background color of pasted content to make pasted text visible:
echo 'unset zle_bracketed_paste' >> ~/.zshrc
The only way to entirely work around the issue for now is to use the non-vibrant theme in Hypest by setting vibrancy to false in your Hypest configuration.
