Colortemplate is a plugin for Vim 8 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 8
Background: dark

# Color palette
Color:      black #000000 ~
Color:      white #ffffff ~

# Highlight group definitions
Normal white black
# Etc…

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 terminals and GUI, from black&white to million of colors.
- Generates color schemes that load efficiently and have a consistent structure following best practices.
- Detects a few common mistakes, e.g., missing highlight group definitions.
- Supports generating any number of auxiliary files (say, autoload/gorgeous.vim).
- Automatically provides xterm approximations for GUI colors.
- Has syntax highlighting and completion.
- Much more! To get started, see :help colortemplate.txt.

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!
vim-colortemplate-2.0.0b1.tar.gz 2.0.0b1 2019-06-04 8.0 Lifepillar Fixed a couple of regressions, notably one breaking mappings.
vim-colortemplate-2.0.0b.tar.gz 2.0.0b 2019-06-03 8.0 Lifepillar The toolkit for color scheme designers, pure 100% VimScript. Colortemplate aspires to become your favourite way to make color schemes! V2 is a complete overhaul of the script with a lot of new features—too many to mention here! Streamlined UI with window toolbar (if your Vim supports it), variants, mappings, new commands, improved documentation, etc… but it is still very easy to use!
vim-colortemplate-1.3.0.tar.gz 1.3.0 2018-08-05 8.0 Lifepillar Output a statistics tab when compiling a template, with useful information about your colorscheme (contrast ratio, color difference, brightness difference, GUI/terminal differences). Create colorschemes that transparently fallback to using 16 colors when t_Co < 256. Many other minor changes.
vim-colortemplate-1.2.2.tar.gz 1.2.2 2018-03-04 8.0 Lifepillar Enable completion of Colortemplate keywords. Add syntax highlighting for debugPC and debugBreakpoint. Minor updates to the documentation.
vim-colortemplate-1.2.1.tar.gz 1.2.1 2018-01-23 8.0 Lifepillar A few bug fixes, especially a couple related to the Include: directive. Clean up the templates folder.
vim-colortemplate-1.2.0.tar.gz 1.2.0 2018-01-21 7.0 Lifepillar Lots of small (and not so small) fixes! Improved documentation. Add Palette directive to include generated palettes. New functions to generate Vimspectr color palettes. Making top notch colorschemes has never been easier!
vim-colortemplate-1.1.1.tar.gz 1.1.1 2017-11-11 8.0 Lifepillar Lots of new goodies! "Include" directive to import files; "auxfile" blocks to generate additional files (e.g., in autoload); warnings for undefined basic highlight groups; more and stricter checks; improved documentation (with new Best practices section!). There are some backward incompatible changes wrt v1.0.0: please see the help file.
vim-colortemplate-1.0.0.tar.gz 1.0.0 2017-10-28 8.0 Lifepillar The toolkit for colorschemes developers!
Lots of new features and bug fixes: new parser; better error handling; generate colorschemes supporting 16 colors, 256 colors and true colors, with dark and/or light background; infer the best approximate colors automatically using DeltaE*; embed the documentation directly in the template; new information fields and interpolation possibilities; utility function to explore approximated colors; toggle the display of details about the highlight group under the cursor; tests added.
vim-colortemplate-0.0.2.tar.gz v0.0.2 2017-10-01 8.0 Lifepillar Bug fixes in error handling.
