Theme Park mode

So much to see in Theme Park!

With this minor mode enabled you can cycle through your installed themes. I made it into a minor mode so that you're not limited to any particular buffer or other constraints when you want to view themes.

Designed to be deactivated (C-c C-q / down arrow) once you're done deciding on a theme.


Available on marmalade and you can install it via M-x package-install theme-park-mode or manually by dropping theme-park-mode.el in your Emacs load-path and (require 'theme-park-mode).


M-x theme-park-mode

C-c C-n / right arrow = next theme
C-c C-p / left arrow  = previous theme
C-c C-r / up arrow    = start over
C-c C-q / down arrow  = quit
C-c C-c               = show name of current theme
C-c C-g               = toggle global / local mode
C-c C-l               = toggle global / local mode
C-c C-t               = tag theme for inclusion in local mode
C-c C-d               = remove theme from local list
C-c C-v               = show tagged themes
C-c C-s               = save tagged themes for future sessions

Local mode

While browsing through themes with this minor mode you can "tag" themes for a smaller list of frequently used themes. Use C-c C-t when on a theme you like and it will be tagged. When you have two or more themes tagged you can go into "local mode" with C-c C-l and cycle between them. You can save the list for future sessions with C-c C-s.


Easiest to use the keybinds but you can use M-x customize-group theme-park-mode or edit tpm-tagged in your init file (i.e: (custom-set-variables '(tpm-tagged '(zenesque-dark-colors underwaterd)))) if you want to change the list manually.


Requires Emacs v24+

You may consider this repo beta and the version on Marmalade as stable.

Psst, look here

If you're experiencing flashing, it's beacuse I unload the current theme before going to the next one, to avoid face tainting. So be careful if you're sensitive to that.
