Doom Emacs' Theme Pack

A theme megapack for GNU Emacs, inspired by community favorites. Special attention is given for Doom Emacs and solaire-mode support, but will work fine anywhere else.

See the screenshots.

Doom Emacs

The built-in :ui doom module installs and configures doom-themes for you, and loads doom-one by default. To change the theme, change doom-theme:

;; in ~/.doom.d/config.el
(setq doom-theme 'doom-city-lights)

Manually + use-package

doom-themes is available on MELPA. Here is an example configuration with some common defaults laid out:

(use-package doom-themes
  :ensure t
  ;; Global settings (defaults)
  (setq doom-themes-enable-bold t    ; if nil, bold is universally disabled
        doom-themes-enable-italic t) ; if nil, italics is universally disabled
  (load-theme 'doom-one t)

  ;; Enable flashing mode-line on errors
  ;; Enable custom neotree theme (all-the-icons must be installed!)
  ;; or for treemacs users
  (setq doom-themes-treemacs-theme "doom-atom") ; use "doom-colors" for less minimal icon theme
  ;; Corrects (and improves) org-mode's native fontification.

Theme list

This megapack's first and flagship theme is doom-one (inspired by Atom One Dark), but also includes 67 themes submitted to us by the Emacs community. We welcome PRs to help us maintain and address inconsistencies in them.

Check out the wiki for details on customizing our neotree/treemacs/etc extensions.

  • (doom-themes-visual-bell-config): flash the mode-line when the Emacs bell rings (i.e. an error occurs). May not be compatible with all mode line plugins.

  • (doom-themes-neotree-config): a neotree theme that takes after Atom's file drawer; a more minimalistic icon theme plus variable pitch file/directory labels, as seen in the doom-one screenshot.

    (This requires all-the-icons' fonts to be installed: M-x all-the-icons-install-fonts)

  • (doom-themes-treemacs-config): two treemacs icon themes, one that takes after Atom's, and a second more colorful implementation.

  • (doom-themes-org-config): corrects and improves some of org-mode's native fontification issues.

    • Re-set org-todo & org-headline-done faces to make them respect underlying faces (i.e. don't override the :height or :background of underlying faces).
    • Make statistic cookies respect underlying faces.
    • Fontify item bullets (make them stand out)
    • Fontify item checkboxes (and when they're marked done), like TODOs that are marked done.
    • Fontify dividers/separators (5+ dashes)
    • Fontify #hashtags and @at-tags, for personal convenience; see doom-org-special-tags to disable this.

Complementary plugins

The following plugins complement our themes:


There are three ways to customize themes in this package:

  1. Explore the available variables provided by our themes, starting with the ones provided for all packages:

    • doom-themes-enable-bold (default: t): if nil, disables bolding as much as possible (only affects faces that our theme supports; it won't catch them all).
    • doom-themes-enable-italic (default: t): if nil, disables italicization as much as possible (only affects faces that our theme supports; it won't catch them all).
    • doom-themes-padded-modeline (default: nil): if t, pad the mode-line in 4px on each side. Can also be set to an integer to specify the exact padding. or M-x customize-group RET doom-themes to explore them.
  2. Use the custom-set-faces macro (Doom users should use custom-set-faces! instead) to customize any face. e.g.

    ;; Must be used *after* the theme is loaded
      `(mode-line ((t (:background ,(doom-color 'dark-violet)))))
      `(font-lock-comment-face ((t (:foreground ,(doom-color 'base6))))))
  3. Copy your favorite theme into your custom-theme-directory (normally ~/.emacs.d/, or ~/.doom.d/themes for Doom users), and tweak it there.


PRs are welcome to maintain our themes, including additional theme and plugin support.
