script type
color scheme
This script's homepage is https://github.com/bdesham/biogoo. Go there for a full README and a screenshot.

This is a bunch of colors that I thought were visually appealing and looked good together.  The background is light shades of gray, and the text is all dark colors.  Note that this color scheme only works in GUI mode (i.e., gvim and not "terminal vim").

I don't really test with syntax files that I don't use.  If you find a situation that looks crappy in biogoo, or if you find something lacking in general, please e-mail me with details and I'll fix the problem :-)

biogoo.vim 1.6.2 2011-02-28 6.0 Benjamin Esham Put the README-type content into a separate file and put everything into a GitHub repository.  (No changes to the color scheme itself.)
biogoo.vim 1.6.1 2010-08-16 6.0 Benjamin Esham Fixed some oversights in 1.6. Version 1.6 swapped the spelling-error color so that setting 'cursorline' or 'cursorcolumn' doesn't make words invisible and added "ColorColumn" to support 'colorcolumn' in Vim 7.3.
biogoo.vim 1.5 2006-11-21 6.0 Benjamin Esham completed support for Vim 7's new highlighting groups
biogoo.vim 0.95 2002-09-28 6.0 Benjamin Esham Initial upload
