description
The colorscheme switcher plug-in for the Vim text editor makes it easy to quickly switch between colorschemes. It defines commands and mappings to switch to the next and previous color schemes:

:NextColorScheme command and <F8> mapping
:PrevColorScheme command and <Shift-F8> mapping

For more information about the plug-in please refer to its homepage or the project page on GitHub:

install details
Please note that the vim-colorscheme-switcher plug-in requires my vim-misc plug-in which is separately distributed (see vimscript #4597).

Unzip the most recent ZIP archives of the vim-colorscheme-switcher and vim-misc plug-ins inside your Vim profile directory (usually this is ~/.vim on UNIX and %USERPROFILE%\vimfiles on Windows), restart Vim and execute the command :helptags ~/.vim/doc (use :helptags ~\vimfiles\doc instead on Windows). Now try it out: Execute :NextColorScheme to switch to the next color scheme.

If you didn't change the plug-in's configuration you can now use the F8 and Shift-F8 keys to switch to the next/previous color scheme.

If you prefer you can also use Pathogen, Vundle or a similar tool to install & update the vim-colorscheme-switcher and vim-misc plug-ins using a local clone of the git repository.
