Atelier Schemes for Vim

NOTE: These color schemes are optimized and have been tested in the GUI version of Vim, and will work in terminal versions as well. For terminals which don’t support truecolor the colors will now use converted colors which are as close as possible in the 8-bit 256 colorspace. It works fine and looks good in Neovim, for the Gui colors for Neovim are now also specifically defined. For Terminal Vim 8+ and/or Neovim, in your (sourced) .vimrc or default .config/nvim/init.vim, have something like this:

set termguicolors
 if has('nvim')
set guicursor=n-v-c:block-Cursor/lCursor-blinkon0,i-ci:ver25-Cursor/lCursor,r-cr:hor20-Cursor/lCursor

For the most seamless experience: these same color schemes have also been ported to iTerm2, and for Hyper there is one: AtelierSulphurpool-Dark for Hyper.
