color scheme
This is one of six colorschemes that are based on DuoTone themes by Simurai for Atom, http://simurai.com/projects/2016/01/01/duotone-themes/ converted with the help of Base16-builder.

DuoTone themes use only 2 hues, this leads to a more calm color scheme, but still lets you find the stuff you're looking for.  

One can find the demopage for these colorschemes at:
