Challenger Deep

Challenger Deep Theme for VIM

To enable this color scheme, set it in your vimrc:

colorscheme challenger_deep

if has('nvim') || has('termguicolors')
  set termguicolors



Plug 'challenger-deep-theme/vim', { 'as': 'challenger-deep' }


Plugin 'challenger-deep-theme/vim', {'name': 'challenger-deep-theme'}




  • g:challenger_deep_termcolors This options sets the terminal colors to 16 or 256 Colors. Default value is 256. If it is set to 16 ,this colorscheme will attempt to use the standard 16 colors of your terminal emulator and background color will be the default background color of your terminal emulator. For the best colors in terminal, its recommended to set set your terminalcolors to Challenger Deep Terminal Colors and use 16 colors.
