Check out the dark-notify project GitHub - cormacrelf/dark-notify: Watcher for macOS 10.14+ light/dark mode changes, although I believe it only works on macOS.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I think it should work on other operating systems. Because the trigger comes from outside. And at the end of the tutorial there is a description for other OS’s.

check my theme.lua u can find it there

Spawn a timer from vim.loop. I use something like this in my config:

function! misc#time_background() abort
lua << EOF
  local timer = vim.loop.new_timer()
  timer:start(0, 600, vim.schedule_wrap(function()
    local hour = tonumber('%H'))
    -- You can change color scheme here.
    local bg = (hour > 8 and hour < 19) and 'light' or 'dark'
    if ~= bg then = bg end
