So I ran into some weird issues with background color bleed when using iTerm2 & vim on OSX. So I thought I’d write my solution up since I found a lot of incorrect information out there.
Step 1: Open iTerm2’s preferences:
Preferences -> Terminal -> ‘Report Terminal Type’ = xterm-256color
Step 2: Open up your .vimrc and add these lines.
set background=dark " solarized options let g:solarized_termcolors = 256 let g:solarized_visibility = "high" let g:solarized_contrast = "high" colorscheme solarized
It’s just that easy!
