  • Limelight [0.0 ~ 1.0]

Limelight for a selected range

You can invoke :Limelight for a visual range. There are also <Plug> mappings for normal and visual mode for the purpose.

nmap <Leader>l <Plug>(Limelight)
xmap <Leader>l <Plug>(Limelight)


For some color schemes, Limelight may not be able to calculate the color for dimming down the surrounding paragraphs. In that case, you need to define g:limelight_conceal_ctermfg or g:limelight_conceal_guifg.

" Color name (:help cterm-colors) or ANSI code
let g:limelight_conceal_ctermfg = 'gray'
let g:limelight_conceal_ctermfg = 240

" Color name (:help gui-colors) or RGB color
let g:limelight_conceal_guifg = 'DarkGray'
let g:limelight_conceal_guifg = '#777777'

" Default: 0.5
let g:limelight_default_coefficient = 0.7

" Number of preceding/following paragraphs to include (default: 0)
let g:limelight_paragraph_span = 1

" Beginning/end of paragraph
"   When there's no empty line between the paragraphs
"   and each paragraph starts with indentation
let g:limelight_bop = '^\s'
let g:limelight_eop = '\ze\n^\s'

" Highlighting priority (default: 10)
"   Set it to -1 not to overrule hlsearch
let g:limelight_priority = -1
