Screenshots and last updates on the official repo.

Unicon is inspired by solarized (https://github.com/altercation/vim-colors-solarized), gruvbox (https://github.com/morhetz/gruvbox) and lucius (https://github.com/jonathanfilip/vim-lucius). It has light and dark variants and supports GUI and 256-color terminals.

I like the ideas solarized based on, but was not satisfied with the implementation because of very low contrast. That was the main reason for creating this colorscheme. Palette for unicon was created to provide increased and really even contrast with background. Accent colors are different for light and dark variants. You can toggle between variants with commands:

set bg=dark
set bg=light
install details
Put colors/unicon.vim to ~/.vim/colors/
or  better use any plugin manager: vim-plug, NeoBundle, Vundle or Pathogen.
To enable colorscheme insert command:

:colorscheme unicon

or write down to ~/.vimrc:

set background=light  " or dark
colorscheme unicon

If your terminal supports true colors you may add the following line to ~/.vimrc before setting colorscheme:

set termguicolors
