Apropospriate Theme

A colorful, low-contrast, light & dark theme set for Emacs 24.3+. It strives to be pleasant, clean, and consistent, with special focus for the current buffer.

This theme started as a Frakenstein mash-up of base16-eighties-theme and solarized-light themes which I customized heavily, then completely swapped out the color palette based on Google's Material color suggestions.




Install & Usage

The recommended and easiest way to install is through MELPA via package.el:

M-x package-install apropospriate-theme

Or you can always manually download the directory somewhere and add it both load-path and custom-theme-load-path.

Once installed, load either theme variant with M-x load-theme or in your config:

(require 'apropospriate)
(load-theme 'apropospriate-dark t)
;; or
(load-theme 'apropospriate-light t)

use-package style:

(use-package apropospriate-theme
  :ensure t
  (load-theme 'apropospriate-dark t)
  ;; or
  (load-theme 'apropospriate-light t))
