Monokai forever! 🎉 Inspired by Sublime Text's interpretation of monokai, this colour is both gui- and cterm-supported. It works for all languages, and is particularly good for Javascript development ❤️

🔌 Installation

I recommend using Plug.

Add the following to your .vimrc and run PlugInstall

Plug 'patstockwell/vim-monokai-tasty'

For JavaScript or React development, monokai-tasty supports definitions from all these plugins. Add some of these for an even better look and feel:

Plug 'pangloss/vim-javascript'
Plug 'MaxMEllon/vim-jsx-pretty'
Plug 'styled-components/vim-styled-components'
Plug 'elzr/vim-json'
Plug 'jparise/vim-graphql'

If you use Vundle:

Plugin 'patstockwell/vim-monokai-tasty'

🐺 Use

Add the following to your .vimrc (after the Plug declaration):

colorscheme vim-monokai-tasty

If you use a terminal that supports italic text, add (before the colorscheme declaration):

let g:vim_monokai_tasty_italic = 1
colorscheme vim-monokai-tasty

To use the included lightline.vim theme:

let g:lightline = {
      \ 'colorscheme': 'monokai_tasty',
      \ }

To use the included vim-airline theme:

let g:airline_theme='monokai_tasty'

🔮 Extras

  • If you use iterm2 (you should), there is an included monokai.itermcolors file.
  • If you use GnuCoreutils there is a dircolors file (compliments the iterm colours)
