Noir theme

Noir is a low contrast theme inspired by nights in the wilderness. It is special among my theme collection in that its two variants are essentially dark (in contrast to distinct light and dark versions). The difference between the two is one of degree: a dark and a ‘lighter’ dark.

Packages or ports of it are available for Vim and Atom, as well as the Xfce4, RXVT-Unicode (urxvt), and XTERM terminal emulators.

Note that this theme is part of the wider Prot16 collection. The Prot16 git repo includes all files (except the Atom packages) for each and every item.

Wish to contribute? Work can be done to port the themes to other applications. The program that handles the process is the Prot16 Generator (a bash script to build themes on demand or to work with other scripts in automating the process).
