Seabed theme

Seabed is a low contrast colour scheme inspired by the deep sea. It is unique among my theme collection in that its two variants are essentially dark (in contrast to distinct light and dark versions). The difference between the two is one of degree: a dark and a ‘lighter’ dark. There is no pure red, orange, and yellow, while the rest of the palette hints heavily towards the blue side of the spectrum.

Packages or ports of it are available for the Atom text editor, Vim, the Vim Airline plugin, Jekyll websites using the Rouge gem, as well as the Xfce4, Terminator, iTerm2, urxvt, and Hyper terminal emulators.

Vim and Vim Airline

All Prot16 themes (including Seabed) are available as plugins for Vim and Vim Airline. To install them, use your favourite plugin manager. With vim-plug:

Plug 'protesilaos/prot16-vim'
Plug 'protesilaos/prot16-vim-airline'

Then specify your choice in .vimrc. Use either the light or dark variant:

colorscheme seabed_light
let g:airline_theme='seabed_light'

" or use these instead
colorscheme seabed_dark
let g:airline_theme='seabed_dark'

Secondary: Measurement units, strings, support functions, etc.
Tertiary: Cursor, support classes, etc.

Terminal emulators

Based on my current tests with a variety of terminal emulators for Arch Linux, Debian 9, and Linux Mint 17.3 and 18.x, I have settled on the following colour mapping (which you have to implement manually if none of the options below suits your needs).

For Seabed, the following terminal emulators are supported thus far:

Jekyll blog with Rouge for highlighting

To use Seabed on your Rouge-enabled Jekyll site, go ahead and implement either the the light or the the dark variant.

This demo makes use of the Rouge gem to create the markup. It is a lightweight solution for highlighting code on the web. Bear in mind that it is not a perfect representation of the Atom packages or terminal ports.
