Colour palette of the Modus themes

The modus-themes is a project of mine that includes two themes for GNU Emacs: modus-operandi and modus-vivendi. They are part of core Emacs since its version 28 (summer 2020). The modus-themes project is released under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 3 (or later)—same as Emacs. In other words, it has a strong commitment to copyleft.

I understand that colours cannot be copyrighted in themselves, but if they can, the themes’ palette is hereby licensed under the terms of the Creative Commons Zero (CC0), meaning that it is in the public domain to the extent possible by law. You do not have to provide attribution for the colour palette, but doing so, such as by linking to this page, can help others discover the original material.

You will find the colours further below.

[ If you are using Emacs, you can always preview them with M-x modus-themes-list-colors or M-x modus-themes-list-colors-current. ]
