Favorite 256-color vim color scheme
What is your favorite 256-color color scheme for vim?

paulsm4 02-25-2011 03:00 PM

I strongly prefer no color scheme :)

I ended up going with the xoria256 color scheme. Mainly because there's a matching one for mc.

There goes my productivity.

* changes color scheme to Inkpot

black foreground, black background.
syntax highlighting in black.
more of a challenge

Better yet: make the cursor black, too.

Just a heads up that vim 8 ships with two color schemes, evening and and koehler, that were updated in the last couple of months.

badwolf is what I like and use 99% of the time.

If you really want to lose some time tinkering with vim colors schemes, grab this: .

Well I have to say those 2 shipped colours are revolting to me :(

I did quite like the look of badwolf, may have to try it for a bit :)

My current scheme is ingretu

I personally started with "torte", and went from there.

Haven't really liked people's theming choices enough to use myself daily.

I was reading 10 Vim Color Schemes You Need to Own and saw vividchalk which I like quite a bit. The statusline is a little too low contrast in terminal-vim, but that's not hard to fix. Some of the other ones look interesting, but I haven't tried them yet. I used to really like Solarized, but these days I like the high contrast colors.
