Here's a shorter script that displays a sample of all 256 cterm colors, by appending to the current buffer:

let num = 255
while num >= 0
    exec 'hi col_'.num.' ctermbg='.num.' ctermfg=white'
    exec 'syn match col_'.num.' "ctermbg='.num.':...." containedIn=ALL'
    call append(0, 'ctermbg='.num.':....')
    let num = num - 1
endwhile

Save this as e.g. color_demo.vim, then do :so color_demo.vim from any buffer.


Update: 20 January 2010

An embellished version of this script is available at: xterm-color-table.vim

Xterm-color-table

xterm-color-table.vim

Update: 27 April 2011

Here's a Python script that will output a grid of color samples in HTML by parsing the generated color list above. Copy the color list exactly as-is to a text file. Save these code as separate file called foo.py. Then do: python foo.py >samples.html and view the result in a browser.

import re
print '<html>'
with open('NAME_OF_FILE.txt') as fin:
	for line in fin.xreadlines():
		m = re.search(r'_(\w+).+(#\w+)', line)
		if not m: continue
		print '<div style="float: left; width:100px; height:100px; background-color:{1}; font-size:8pt; color: #111; font-family:ubuntu;">{0}</div>'.format(*m.groups())
print '</html>'

Formatvim plugin contains a tool which is able to output a color table in format

---
- '#000000'
- '#b21818'
…
a list in YAML format where first item contains color that is used when you set ctermbg=0, second for ctermbg=1 and so on. Requires imagemagick, its perl bindings and, optionally, xdotool (and mercurial to clone the repository). Usage:
hg clone http://formatvim.hg.sourceforge.net:8000/hgroot/formatvim/formatvim
./formatvim/tools/getcolors.pl colors.yaml 256

where “colors.yaml” is a file where colors will be saved to and 256 is a number of colors your terminal supports. Documentation is here.
