description
Briofita is a complex dark background GUI colorscheme with highlights for common programming languages and light
mark-up tools, usable under both low-light and normal-light conditions. Although heavier than common Vim
colorschemes it runs smoothly on current computers. (I have been using it for years with no issue).  

It implements colorscheme highlights for MANY syntaxes and fulfills study, research and work needs.
It supports Java, Javascript, Perl, Python, Ruby, Shellscript, SQL, PL/SQL,VimL, Asciidoc, Markdown, CSS,
HTML/XHTML, XML and C/C++ (among other programming languages).

Selected syntax elements can have their highlights changed by the user either manually or via plugin.
For GNU/Linux a companion plugin provides GUI menus that make it easy to change Briofita settings.
(The colorscheme may be used without the plugin.)

install details
a. Download the zip file.

b. Unpack it.
   The unzipped file tree will have three directories: "colors", "doc" and "plugin".

c. If you do NOT use a bundle-based plugin (like Pathogen):
     1 copy the content of the "colors" directory into your ".vim/colors" directory;
     2 copy the content of the "doc" directory into your ".vim/doc" directory;
        copy the content of the "plugin" directory into your ".vim/plugin" directory;
        restart Vim and do :helptags;
        do :help briofita, and read the help file to learn about Briofita;
     3 do :colorscheme briofita (or :Tcolorscheme briofita, if you installed the
       TabPageColorScheme plugin);
     4 for a start, call the plugin function that builds a menu, and play with it;
       (that menu will by default be under the Plugin main menu).

d. If you use Pathogen or other bundle-based plugin:
     1 create under your ".vim/bundle" directory a new directory, and name it "briofita";
        and copy the unzipped file tree under the ".vim/bundle/briofita" directory;
     2 restart Vim and do :Helptags (Pathogen command);
        do :help briofita, and read the help file to learn about Briofita;
     3 do :colorscheme briofita (or :Tcolorscheme briofita, if you installed the
       TabPageColorScheme plugin);
     4 for a start, call the plugin function that builds a menu, and play with it;
       (that menu will by default be under the Plugin main menu).

To uninstall, simply delete it from the above mentioned directories.

If you want to install the colorscheme, but not the plugin follow
the above instructions "c.1" and "c.3" (or "d.1" and "d.3") and then just delete the plugin ("briofita-support.vim") from
the plugin sub-directory  and the help file ("briofita.txt") from the doc sub-directory.
