Tempus Themes for Vim

DEPRECATION NOTICE — MOVED TO GITLAB.

The theme files can be copied manually or installed as a bundle with a plugin.

Manual method: we use the command line

Start by cloning the tempus-themes-vim repo and entering it (unless you prefer copy-pasting, in which case adapt accordingly):

git clone https://github.com/protesilaos/tempus-themes-vim.git --depth 1 && cd tempus-themes-vim

Create destination directory

The manual method requires you to copy the file to ~/.vim/colors/. Run the following command, while ignoring line that start with # (those are just comments):

# Create path to colors directory if it does not already exist
mkdir -p ~/.vim/colors/

Copying to destination directory

Now run the following command for the theme of your choice. The example uses tempus_winter.vim:

cp colors/tempus_winter.vim ~/.vim/colors/

Done.

Pro tip. To copy all the themes at once, run the following:

cp colors/*.vim ~/.vim/colors/

Applying the theme

Once copied to the right place, the theme is declared with the following options inside the .vimrc:

" Theme
syntax enable
colorscheme tempus_winter

Plugin method

Use your favourite plugin manager. With vim-plug add the following line to your .vimrc:

Plug "protesilaos/tempus-themes-vim"

Then execute the plugin manager's command to update the plugin files.

Applying the theme

Once available, the theme is declared with the following options inside the .vimrc:

" Theme
syntax enable
colorscheme tempus_winter

Enjoy!
