Colortemplate is a plugin for Vim 8 and later that allows you to easily develop color schemes. Its ambitious goal is to become *the* way to create new color schemes for Vim!

Colortemplate is based on a very simple but very flexible template format. This is a minimal template:

Full name:  My Gorgeous Theme
Short name: gorgeous
Author:     Me <me@somewhere.org>

Variant:    gui 256
Background: dark

; Color palette
Color:      myblack #333333 ~
Color:      mywhite #fafafa ~

; Highlight group definitions
Normal      mywhite myblack

Term colors: mywhite mywhite mywhite mywhite mywhite mywhite mywhite mywhite
Term colors: myblack myblack myblack myblack myblack myblack myblack myblack

Use :Colortemplate to turn a template into a full-fledged colorscheme. For example:

:Colortemplate ~/.vim

will translate your template and write your new shining color scheme into ~/.vim/colors/gorgeous.vim, ready to be used!

Main Features:

- Generates color schemes that support all environments, from black&white to
  millions of colors, and both terminal and GUI Vim.
- Generates color schemes that load efficiently and have a consistent structure
  following best practices.
- Automatically provides xterm approximations for GUI colors.
- Imports any color scheme. You do not have to start from scratch!
- Provides a sophisticated style picker. Create color schemes in real-time
  directly within Vim!
- Displays information about the highlight group under the cursor.
- Computes useful statistics about your color scheme.
- Supports generating any kind of auxiliary files (say,
  `autoload/gorgeous.vim` or `scripts/foo.sh`).
- Has syntax completion for highlight groups, keywords and common colors.
- …And a lot more!

Colortemplate is fully documented: to learn everything about it, read `:help
colortemplate.txt`.

vim-colortemplate-2.0.0.tar.gz 2.0.0 2019-07-15 8.0 Lifepillar After applying the final touches, the v2.0 milestone has been reached! What are you expecting to start designing your color schemes?
vim-colortemplate-2.0.0rc1.tar.gz 2.0.0rc1 2019-07-03 8.0 Lifepillar The v2.0 milestone is approaching! This release fixes a few minor issues and adds a couple more options to control the output of your color scheme (now even from the template itself via the `Colortemplate Options` key!). New features: `omit` keyword to omit parts of a highlight group definition (e.g., `hi Foo white omit` defines only the foreground color); RGB names are not converted to hex values in the output. Please test and provide feedback so v2.0 will be a rock solid release!

vim-colortemplate-2.0.0b3.tar.gz 2.0.0b3 2019-06-11 8.0 Lifepillar Ironed out a few features and added new ones: `ga` now shows colors; statistics has been extended with “critical pairs” of fg/bg colors; file extension may be omitted when including files; added #if, #let, #unlet, #call commands to streamline some verbatim blocks. And several bugs were removed!
