El Capitan Theme

This is a dark version of the El Capitan theme created by Ricci Adams.

This README needs to be updated big time to reflect that. Most of the following is the same README from the original theme.

At the moment this theme is not 100% functional. I hope for it to be that way early next week! However - it does, for the most part, work well on retina displays.

OS X Yosemite inspired light theme for Sublime Text 3.
