About

Nimbus is a dark theme that I developed for my personal use. It's the only theme I ever use. I regularly add and modify faces and am always looking to support more third-party packages.

Nimbus was originally a fork of Ample.

Installing

Make sure you have set up MELPA and run:

M-x package-install RET nimbus-theme RET

Use M-x customize-themes to activate it, or put the following in your Emacs configuration file:

(load-theme 'nimbus t)

Or, if you have use-package:

(use-package nimbus-theme)

Troubleshooting

If you encounter any issues with Nimbus (such as text faces being hard to read or not appearing as expected), please try the following:

  1. Restart Emacs and make sure Nimbus is the first theme you enable. Switching custom themes during an Emacs session may cause artifacts from the previous theme to remain.
  2. Leave a bug report on GitHub. Please try to include screenshots as well as full instructions for reproducing your problem, including setup of the relevant mode.
