Vim Color Scheme: Hemisu

Development 13/11/2011

Introducing Hemisu, a color scheme for the command-line editor Vim, that comes in two flavors (dark and light) and nicely complements Peppermint.

Features

  • Two modes: one optimized for daytime, the other optimized for low light conditions
  • Made to work with both GUIs (gui) and 256-color terminals (cterm)
  • Provides harmonious colors and styles for all predefined UI elements and syntax groups

Usage

To install and use this color scheme, move the file hemisu.vim into your colors directory (e.g., ~/.vim/colors/).

The color scheme comes in two flavors, dark and light. To toggle between the two modes, set the background in Vim:

set background=dark
set background=light

To enable syntax highlighting and use the color scheme automatically when you start Vim, add the following to your .vimrc:

syntax on
colorscheme hemisu

    Hi,
    just wanted to say Thank You for this great scheme! Actually it’s my new favorite, as good or even better than Solarized.

    BTW: Your download link on the main page points to an empty github directory (https://github.com/noahfrederick/Hemisu/downloads). (NF: fixed.)

    Best regards
