Klere Theme for the Emacs Editor
A dark Emacs theme with lambent color highlights and incremental grays
Why I Created Klere
Put simply, I wanted bright colors though without clashing. I like dark themes and colors that seem more radiant; not like they cut through the black/dark-gray in distinct lines, like pastels might, but would seem to radiate from the dark, softy glowing.
So, putting colors together bit by bit, I came up with Klere; it's bright but not in a way that overpowers its dark-gray background of the other shades of gray that outline the other fixtures: vibrant colors for highlight, grays for outlines; that's the hope, at least.
How to Download/Install
Klere is on Melpa; you can install it by running
M-x list-packages in Emacs and searching for
klere-theme if you have the Melpa repository loaded by
Package. If you don't have the repository added – yet –, you can find instructions for how to add it at the Melpa Github page.
If you don't want to use either Melpa or Emacs's package manager, choose a directory to store your themes in (or, at least, Klere in) – such as
~/.emacs.d/themes – and load them as so:
(add-to-list 'custom-theme-load-path "~/.emacs.d/themes/") in your emacs init file. You can, then, load the theme via
customize or adding
(load-theme 'klere t) to your init file, as well.
