       tabs is the array with settings for all tabs. Access specific tab by index.


       Look inside provided rc.lua.example.


       After start sometimes there is black screen. Resizing termit window helps.

       In  options  table  'tabs'  field  should  be  the last one. When loading all settings are
       applied in the same order as they are set in options table. So if you set  tabs  and  only
       then colormap, these tabs would have default colormap.
