A dark color theme for Emacs 24+ (using deftheme), inspired by the default dark theme in Light Table 0.4.0. This color theme is based off the definitions and format in sellout's awesome emacs-color-theme-solarized, providing support for a lot of modes.

This is still pretty rough around the edges; I think some color tweaks are still needed, and pull requests are definitely welcome.


Showing ido and some syntax highlighting


  1. Add the directory containing noctilux-definitions.el and noctilux-theme.el to your custom-theme-load-path (e.g. (add-to-list 'custom-theme-load-path "~/.emacs.d/lib/color-themes")).
  2. Add (load-theme 'noctilux t) somewhere to your Emacs initialisation.


You'll at least need Emacs 24 for deftheme color-theme system. Used and tested with 24.3 and an sRGB graphical Emacs setup.
