Emacs: introduction to the ef-themes “Melissa” variants

User can find two new themes in the current development version of my ef-themes. These are ef-melissa-dark and ef-melissa-light. They form a pair within the broader collection, as they both give the same impression of a warm, predominantly yellow/orange feel, with carefully chosen complementary hues.

Sample pictures are shown below, though make sure to review the entire collection: https://protesilaos.com/emacs/ef-themes-pictures. Click to enlarge the image for best results.

Coming in version 1.4.0 (next stable release)

I consider the “Melissa” pair done, though I may still make some minor tweaks over the coming days leading up to the publication of the next stable version of the ef-themes package. Enjoy!

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