Blau theme

Blau is a medium contrast theme inspired by the colours of FC Barcelona. It comes in light and dark variants, while using a single 16-colour palette.

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.

Atom text editor packages

Blau light available at

Atom GitHub Or run the command apm install blau-syntax

Atom GitHub Or run the command apm install blau-dark-syntax

Vim and Vim Airline

The Vim port is in its early testing phase. Language support in particular could use some more work. Everything is subject to change.

All Prot16 themes (including Blau) 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 blau_light
let g:airline_theme='blau_light'

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

Primary: Class names, variables, functions, etc.
Secondary: Measurement units, strings, support functions, etc.
Tertiary: Cursor, support classes, etc.

Terminal emulators

All of my themes were originally developed for Atom. I do, nonetheless, plan to branch out from there. For the time being, I am experimenting with ways to make ports for at least some of the most popular programs. Based on my current tests on Arch Linux and Linux Mint 17.3 and 18, I have settled on the following colour mapping (which you have to implement manually if none of the options below suits your needs).

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

Jekyll blog with Rouge for highlighting

To use Blau on your Rouge-enabled Jekyll site, go ahead and implement this SCSS stylesheet. Read the inline comments on how to switch between light and dark.

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.
