A dark but vibrant color theme for Emacs where almost everything except the code and the mode-line is muted so that the focus is entirely on buffer text. The mode-line for active window is highlighted to make it more noticeable while moving back and forth between windows.

Installation

Manual

Save the file overcast-theme.el to disk and add the directory containing it to 'load-path' using a command in your '.emacs' file like:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/")

The above line assumes that you've placed the file into the Emacs directory '.emacs.d'.

Activate the package with:

(require 'overcast-theme)

MELPA-Stable / MELPA / Marmalade

If you have MELPA-Stable, MELPA or Marmalade added as a repository to your Emacs, you can just install overcast-theme with

M-x package-install overcast-theme RET

Usage

Enable the theme by

(load-theme 'overcast)

Alternatively, use

(load-theme 'overcast
    t)

to avoid Emacs asking you for a confirmation before enabling the theme.

You might have to disable all themes that had been enabled earlier by

(mapcar 'disable-theme
    custom-enabled-themes)
