Parchment

Parchment is an editor theme for Vim and Emacs, inspired by Acme and Leuven. You might like it if you prefer light colorschemes but think black-on-white is too hard on your eyes, or if you find most colorschemes too busy.

Installation

Emacs

MELPA

After enabling installation of MELPA packages, install parchment-theme with M-x package-install. Load it using load-theme.

Or if you are using use-package (strongly recommended), simply add the following to your init.el:

(use-package parchment-theme
  :ensure t
  :config (load-theme 'parchment t))

Manual

To install parchment-theme for Emacs manually instead, first clone the repository to your local system:

mkdir -p ~/.emacs.d/themes
git clone https://github.com/ajgrf/parchment ~/.emacs.d/themes/parchment

Then add the following to your init.el or .emacs file:

(add-to-list 'custom-theme-load-path "~/.emacs.d/themes")
(load-theme 'parchment t)

Vim

Parchment can be installed in the same way as most other vim plugins and colorschemes. If you don’t have a preferred method of installing vim plugins, I recommend using pathogen to install parchment. Once pathogen is set up, just clone this repo into your bundle directory:

git clone https://github.com/ajgrf/parchment ~/.vim/bundle/parchment

Terminal Colors

If your terminal does not support true colors, you will need to use a matching terminal theme, and ensure that it does not use bright colors for bold text. The following X resources accomplish that for xterm and urxvt:

*background:           #ffffea
*foreground:           #000000

*color0:               #000000
*color1:               #880000
*color2:               #005500
*color3:               #663311
*color4:               #004488
*color5:               #770077
*color6:               #007777
*color7:               #eeeecc
*color8:               #eaeaea
*color9:               #ffeaea
*color10:              #eaffea
*color11:              #eeee9e
*color12:              #cceeff
*color13:              #ffeaff
*color14:              #eaffff
*color15:              #ffffea
