A simple, low-contrast Vim colorscheme with (drastically) reduced syntax highlighting.


Highlight only when exceptional. Such is the way of highlight.vim.

You can see it in the editor's own UI elements. Notice how the statusline remains unassuming, unless something of note appears.

You can see it in the syntax highlighting itself. Notice how everything is a colorless white by default. Comments are melded into a background gray. Strings are highlighted.
install details
Copy the contents of colors into ~/.vim on UNIX-like systems, or install with your favorite plugin manager.
