With the retirement of the "Arctic Ice Studio" personal & Nord project
brand [1] various migrations to the `svengreb` GitHub account [2] of
other projects were also completed within the last weeks. There are also
changes in Nord projects like `nordtheme/web` that other projects
depended on and can now be adapted as well.
Therefore all Nord projects must adapt these changes which includes...

- the migration and repository name change of
  `arcticicestudio/nord-docs`[2] - all references must be updated.
- the migration of the `arcticicestudio/styleguide-git` repository to
  the `svengreb` "real-in-person" identity [3] - all references and
  used npm packages must be updated.
- the migration of the `arcticicestudio/styleguide-javascript`
  repository to the `svengreb` "real-in-person" identity [4] - all
  references and used npm packages must be updated.
- the migration of the `arcticicestudio/styleguide-markdown` repository
  to the `svengreb` "real-in-person" identity [5] - all references and
  used npm packages must be updated.

An arctic, north-bluish color palette.

A total of sixteen, carefully selected, dimmed pastel colors for a eye-comfortable, but yet colorful ambiance.

Created for clear, uncluttered and elegant designs following a minimal and flat style pattern. For syntax highlighting it aims to ensure an undisturbed focus on important parts of the code, a good readability and a quick visual distinction between the different syntax elements.

Nord consists of four named color palettes providing different syntactic meanings and color effects for dark & bright ambiance designs.

All colors are numbered from nord0 to nord15 where each palette contains a different amount of colors. The naming convention preserves the compatibility for terminal color schemes and allows an uncomplicated use as base for such.
