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.
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:
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
Enable the theme by
(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)
Inspired by a template from ThemeCreator.
