Candy Chain

Candy Chain is a colourful and subtle colour theme for Emacsen. It's supposed to highlight what matters to you, while toning down less important things.


You first need to get the [color-theme][] package. If it's not available on your package manager, just build it from the releases:

$ wget
$ tar -xzf color-theme*.tar.gz
$ cd color-theme*
$ sudo make install

Then, get the theme's source:

$ cd ~/.emacs.d/vendor
$ git clone git://

And install it on your emacs config file:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/vendor/candy-chain")
(require 'color-theme)
(require 'candy-chain)



This theme is released under GPL v2. See COPYING for less information:

$ cd ~/.emacs.d/vendor/candy-chain
$ less COPYING

(Of course, given you've already cloned the source...)
