Latest commit

To use italic Comment, use let g:zenburn_italic_Comment=1 prior to
loading the colorscheme.

Note: not all terminals support cterm=italic, if the support is missing,
the terminal output will look weird.

Fixes #26.

ZENBURN

Zenburn is a low-contrast color scheme for Vim. It’s easy for your eyes and designed to keep you in the zone for long programming sessions.

Zenburn has been ported to many different editors and environments. For more information and list of derivatives, visit http://kippura.org/zenburnpage

No:

  • dayglo vomit
  • black, red, blue and green on screaming white background
  • headache
  • watery, squinting eyes
  • the "I wanna run away" feeling

Yes:

  • alien fruit salad
  • harmonious colors help with concentration
  • improved focus
  • stay longer in the zone
  • more productivity
  • looks good
  • 256-color terminal mode
  • GVim mode
  • customizeable
  • etc.

INSTALLATION

To use Zenburn in GVim, simply copy the file to colors/ subdirectory under your Vim configuration folder (e.g. ~/.vim/colors or C:\vim\colors).

To use Zenburn in Vim, you must enable the 256-color mode for Vim. This can be done with e.g. export TERM=xterm-256color. You might also need to add set t_Co=256 into your .vimrc file, before loading the colorscheme. Note, that due to limitations of the 256-color mode the color scheme is not exactly like it appears in GVim, but very close nevertheless.

To load Zenburn in Vim/GVim:

:colors zenburn

To automatically load the colors upon startup of Vim, add this to .vimrc:

colors zenburn

DEVELOPERS

Captain Obvious says: make a symlink from ~/.vim/colors/zenburn.vim which points to the real zenburn.vim. This way you don't need to copy files around and making the Vimball is easy!

MAKING A VIMBALL

To make a Vimball, open zb-vimball.txt and then :MkVimball zenburn.vba
