Hemisu Color Scheme for Vim

Screen shot of MacVim

Features

  • Two modes: one optimized for daytime, the other optimized for low light conditions
  • Made to work with both GUIs (gui) and color terminals (cterm)
  • Provides harmonious colors and styles for all predefined UI elements and syntax groups

Usage

To install and use this color scheme, move the file hemisu.vim into your colors directory (e.g., ~/.vim/colors/).

The color scheme comes in two flavors, dark and light. To toggle between the two modes, set the background in Vim:

:set background=dark
:set background=light

To enable syntax highlighting and use the color scheme automatically when you start Vim, add the following to your .vimrc:

if &t_Co > 2 || has("gui_running")
  syntax on
  colorscheme hemisu
endif
