I updated the repository, thanks for the @kurahaupo's PR, also syncronized this gist with the repository, and added the link.

About Querying the Terminal: the response should actually look like ...;48:2::1:2:3m - note the double colon which allows a position for the optional color space value.

I want to know why MacOS built-in terminal not support true color?

@khamer @JoshMerlino what is the 4:3 supposed to do in the middle of that escape sequence, before the 38 and 48 "extended" colour codes?

@mintty @wendajiang @JoshMerlino - please note that this gist is no longer maintained. Please add your comments to the standardterm repo instead.

@XVilka - this is why I suggested that the entire content of this gist should be deleted except for the link to the repo. It would also help to mark all the comments as "hidden".

After my confirmation. Xshell6/7 support truecolor. But you must set "Tools-Options..-Advanced" check the "Use true color*"

@coolmian would you mind please adding your notes as an issue on the standardterm repo ? (Preferably create a PR with a fix.)
