This is certainly useful, although with colour themes in the form of
escape sequences (some minttyrc colour schemes are also distributed in
this form), a simple `cat` would also do the trick. A simple shell
script could do the listing or transform formats on-the-fly.
Anyway, mintty now has its own feature to load a colour scheme (option
ThemeFile, also in the Options menu, but not from the command line)
where colour schemes are kept in a dedicated subdirectory. It would be
good to integrate your script with this, so it's not necessary to
duplicate the schemes in two repositories.
As a weekend project, I put together mintty-colors , which is a
python package for changing color schemes in mintty on the fly.
I don't know if there already is such a function packaged in cygwin,
this was really just recreational. But if someone else finds it useful
