* Move highlight statement to belonging paragraph

Highlight statement of `Include` wrongly moved to `Normal` paragraph. So
move it back to `Statement` paragraph.

Remove newlines between (Error|Warning|Info|More)Msg paragraphs.

* Align linked targets to same indentation

Keep linked highlight group targets to start from column 27.

This is a fork of vim-colors-off which is being developed based on my personal taste.


Minimalistic colorscheme which uses bold to highlight keywords and a distinguished color for constant literals (string, numbers, JSX tags).

  • What terminal emulator is shown on the screenshots?

    This is kitty. Fast and highly configurable.

  • Is this Vim or Neovim on the screenshots and why?

    This is Neovim.

  • What font is being used on the screenshots?

    Pragmata Pro which is not free but worth the money paid. Iosevka is another great font I used before which is similar in feel.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
