Solarized Colorscheme for Mutt
Developed by Ethan Schoonover email@example.com
See the homepage for the Solarized colorscheme for versions for Vim, popular terminal emulators and other applications.
Move the mutt-colors-solarized directory into the same location as your muttrc. Alternately, you can copy just the version of the colorscheme you will be using (see below for details).
Source the colorscheme in your muttrc. Only one of the following, depending on the light or dark background you wish to use, and whether you want to use the native 16 colors of your terminal emulator or the approximatation provided by the 256 color values. See note below for recommendations.
source $MAILCONF/mutt-colors-solarized/mutt-colors-solarized-dark-16.muttrc source $MAILCONF/mutt-colors-solarized/mutt-colors-solarized-light-16.muttrc source $MAILCONF/mutt-colors-solarized/mutt-colors-solarized-dark-256.muttrc source $MAILCONF/mutt-colors-solarized/mutt-colors-solarized-light-256.muttrc
Note: You can safely ignore the compile colors script and the template file.
They are used only for creating the actual colorscheme files. If you want to modify the colorscheme or colors, you can use the compile script and template to do so.
See the Solarized homepage for screenshots which will help you select either the light or dark background.
A thornier question is whether to use the 16 color version or the 256 color version. I have spent a great deal of time refining this colorscheme and for the most accurate experience I recommend that you set your terminal emulator to use the Solarized colorvalues with the 16 color mutt colorschemes in this distribution. Terminal colorschemes/values are available at the homepage linked to above.
The 256 color versions provide an approximate experience of the colorscheme in most regards, though the carefully selected monotones are crudely replaced by neutral tones.
