Jazz theme for Emacs 24+

Jazz is a warm dark color theme for Emacs 24+ inspired by zenburn color theme. The theme uses Emacs 24+ theming support and is tested only with GUI version of Emacs.



Download jazz-theme.el to the directory ~/.emacs.d/themes/ and add this to your .emacs (or .emacs.d/init.el or whatever init file you use):

(add-to-list 'custom-theme-load-path "~/.emacs.d/themes/")

Now you can load the theme like this:

M-x load-theme RET jazz


jazz-theme is available in MELPA repository (instructions on adding the repo can be found here). With MELPA repo added the theme can be installed by:

M-x package-install jazz-theme


The Jazz theme can also be installed with el-get (the package is available via MELPA):

M-x el-get-install RET jazz-theme RET

The el-get recipe for the theme (if needed) would be the following though:

(:name jazz-theme
       :description "A warm dark color theme for Emacs 24+"
       :type github
       :pkgname "donderom/jazz-theme"
       :minimum-emacs-version 24
       :prepare (add-to-list 'custom-theme-load-path default-directory))

Auto load

To load it automatically on Emacs startup add this to your init file:

(load-theme 'jazz t)


Jazz theme with some Ruby


You are more than welcome to send a pull request for any improvement you think is worth adding to the theme (we're colour-nazi after all, aren't we? :)).
