Solo Jazz Theme for Emacs

MELPA (recommended)

You can install this theme with the following package.el command: M-x package-install solo-jazz-theme

Or if you have use-package, simply add this declaration to your init.el:

(use-package solo-jazz-theme
  :ensure t
  (load-theme 'solo-jazz t))


Download solo-jazz-theme.el and put it under ~/.emacs.d/themes/, then add these lines to your init.el:

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

Rainbow Mode

If you would like to modify the theme, you may find it useful to see the colors directly. You can do so using rainbow mode by executing the following.

(advice-add 'rainbow-turn-on :after  #'solo-jazz-theme-rainbow-turn-on)
(advice-add 'rainbow-turn-off :after #'solo-jazz-theme-rainbow-turn-off)

Toggling rainbow-mode inside the solo-jazz-theme.el will colorize all solo-jazz color names wherever they appear in that buffer.
