#Antarctic Vim

A bleak, functional colorscheme with a splash of colour where needed.

Copyright © 2019 Samuel Walladge

#About

A light colour scheme designed to be functional. It is not designed to look pretty, but rather be readable in high glare conditions, use little coloured text (inspired by syntax off and semantic highlighting), and not include any eye-straining colour/contrast combinations.

Should work out of the box for 256 colour terminals and 24bit gui/terminals. If something doesn't look quite right, please open and issue with a description of the problem and ideally a screenshot.

Inspired by numerous web articles about light colour themes and less colourful syntax highlighting. I don't expect anyone else to like or use this. It's published publicly so I can install it with the rest of the Vim plugins I use. Most colour and typography choices are arbitrary and reflect my whims or laziness.

See https://www.swalladge.net/projects/antarctic-vim/ for screenshots.

#Installation

:h packages or use a package manager of your choice.

#Usage

:colorscheme antarctic

#Configuration

There is no configuration. If you want to customize the colours, you are free to fork the repository and make changes as you wish (see development info below). Please consider making a pull request back to the original repository if you feel your changes may benefit the wider community.

#Development

This colour scheme is developed using romainl's erb template. Ruby must be installed (for the erb command).

Edit the variables in colors/paper.erb and run make to build colors/antarctic.vim. colors/antarctic.vim should not be edited directly.
