This is yet another Solarized theme for Vim. It places itself half way between the original Solarized and the Flattened variant. It removes only some of the bullshit. The color palette is exactly the same as in Solarized, of course, although some highlight groups are defined slightly differently (and better, in my opinion).

The reason for the existence of this project is that the original Solarized theme does not define guifg and guibg in terminal Vim, which means that gui colors cannot be used with versions of Vim supporting true-color terminals.

This colorscheme works out of the box if you use:

- NeoVim with true-color support enabled, or
- Vim 7.4.1799 or later with termguicolors on,

and a true-color enabled terminal (e.g., iTerm). It also works in MacVim and other GUI versions, of course.

For terminals not supporting true colors, the requirement is the same as for the other colorschemes: your terminal ASCII colors must be set to the Solarized palette. The ugly degraded 256-color variant has been removed.
