Creating Your Lovely Color Scheme

For other environments

IDEs and text editors

Terminal emulators

NOTE: provides configuration files for the 16 ANSI colors for many terminal emulators (e.g. GNOME Terminal, iTerm2, etc.). Use .Xresources file as import and export it for the emulator of your choice.


Building your own Iceberg

NOTE: This section is for color scheme developers. If you just want to use the color scheme, you don't have to follow these steps.

  1. Install cocopon/pgmnt.vim, a template engine for Vim color scheme, to your Vim.

  2. To modify a color palette, edit autoload/iceberg/palette/(dark|light).vim. If you make changes, be sure to :source this file before step 4 otherwise your color palette changes will not be reflected.

  3. To modify highlighting groups or links, edit src/iceberg.vim.

  4. After editing, compile the source file as below:

    :e src/iceberg.vim
    :cd %:h
    :source %

    Compiled files will be output into autoload directory.
