🏆 I provide private lessons on Emacs, Linux, and Life in general: https://protesilaos.com/coach/. Lessons continue throughout the year.

Screen shots of the Ef themes for GNU Emacs

Refer to the official manual for the specifics of these themes (if you have the package installed, just evaluate this: (info "(ef-themes) Top")).

The following screen shots correspond to version 1.2.0-dev, except for the ef-maris-light and ef-maris-dark which are part of 1.3.0-dev. The screen shots were taken on 2023-06-18, while the “Maris” ones were done on 2023-07-22. The typeface is Iosevka Comfy, my modified version of Iosevka.

Enlarge the image, because the smaller size can affect your perception of what is on display.
