Emacs: introduction to the ef-themes “cherie” theme

The ef-cherie theme is now part of my ef-themes package. It is a legible dark theme with warm colors (mostly pink, magenta, gold). Conceptually, it is the first theme I designed for this project but never finalised: it was missing the je ne sais quoi that only became obvious after I started covering the different stylistic variants that form part of this collection.

Sample pictures are shown below. Also check the entire set: https://protesilaos.com/emacs/ef-themes-pictures. To get the most accurate results, click to enlarge the image.

The ef-themes now includes 20 items (10 light, 10 dark), which cover a broad range of preferences and requirements for accessibility. I consider the project complete from a stylistic point of view, potential tweaks notwithstanding.

[ The ef-themes are a collection of light and dark themes for GNU Emacs whose goal is to provide colourful (“pretty”) yet legible options for users who want something with a bit more flair than the modus-themes (also designed by me). ]

These share some similarities, though you will notice that the new theme is much warmer than the other two. The following samples show ef-trio-dark, ef-cherie, ef-winter in this order.

Coming in version 0.9.0 (next stable release)

ef-cherie is under development. I think its character is clear at this point and will condition any possible tweaks to its colour palette or how colours are mapped to various constructs. At any rate, changes are still possible.

Expect this and other goodies to be widely available in the next version of the ef-themes, which I will prepare some time before the end of this month.
