A dark pastel colorscheme my friend spent too much time on.


This colorscheme is compatable in GUI and Terminal Vim. It includes some modified color highlighting for the following filetypes: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, HAML, SASS, CoffeeScript, Ruby, ZSH, and a couple others. Also includes better highlighting for diffing between files in Vim.

Add the eddie.vim file inside the colors directory to your existing colorschemes in ~/.vim/colors/


A buddy of mine spent a lot of time on his Eclipse color theme and I was continually frustrated with most Vim colorschemes so I just ported his but added some new colors for diffing.


  • My JavaScript doesn't look like that

Sometimes I mess around in syntax files. It's on Github but I won't take any responsibility for things malfunctioning if you decide to use them.

  • How do I get the highlight group for a word?

Add this command to your .vimrc and use it as :Syn for the word under the cursor.

  • I don't like what you did for <insert some tag in some language here>

It's super easy to customize. Just look in the colors/eddie.vim file for whatever you don't like (say, CSS highlighting for pseudo-elements would be under the CSSgroup as cssPseudoClass), find it and change the color to another one defined at the top of the file or add your own.

Think it's a good change? File a pull request with a screenshot so that people can give feedback!
