I live in the terminal, and I wanted a good Vim theme for a dark background. I don't like most of the default themes. So I decided to create my own. The name partially comes from the fact that I use Hot Pink as a main color. I also thought it would be funny to be able to answer the question: "What's your Vim theme?" with "I use the Hotness"


  • Download the .zip of this repo and unzip it
  • Copy colors/hotness.vim to your ~/.vim/colors directory
  • in your ~/.vimrc file, add the following lines
set background=dark

" Turns on syntax highlighting.
syntax on

" Current Theme
colorscheme hotness

" Highlight the current line
set cursorline

Now you're all set to apply the Hotness to your code!
