Selenized color palette
Selenized is a color theme for terminals and text editors, carefully designed using professional-grade CIE Lab* color space for maximum readability and great eye comfort.
- make the contrast just right: strong but not tiring to the eyes
- adjust lightness of all colors for uniform readability
- select colors in a way that boosts code comprehension
- make it as beautiful and visually pleasing as possible
Read more about the design here.
Ready-to-use config files are available for the following terminals:
- GNOME terminal (default terminal on Ubuntu, Linux Mint and other Linux distros using Gnome)
- Konsole (KDE's terminal)
- if you use Terminal.app (default OS X terminal), I recommend switching to iTerm, for reasons listed here.
If your terminal is not listed here, you can always manually copy hex values into its preferences. Please consider sending me a pull request with the resulting configuration so that I can add it to officially supported terminals :-)
Like Solarized dark, but better.
Oldschool black-and-white look with a littel more contrast.
A warm sepia variant, corresponding to Solarized light.
Unlike many dark-on-white palettes, yellow color is readable here.
What about Solarized?
There is a popular color palette named Solarized. I really liked the design principles behind Solarized, but it has a couple issues, which Selenized solves.
By the way, the name is derived from the greek word "selene", which means the moon (as opposed to the sun in Solarized).
Some command-line programs need reconfiguration to look good with Selenized, because they make assumptions about the colors configured in terminal (see this issue for details):
