Ocarina theme

It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.

Ocarina is a medium contrast colour scheme loosely inspired by The Legend of Zelda video game series. It has been created in celebration of Zelda’s 30th anniversary. It comes in light and dark variants, while using a single 16-colour palette.

Packages or ports of it are available for the Atom text editor, Vim, the Vim Airline plugin, Jekyll websites using the Rouge gem, as well as the Xfce4, Terminator, iTerm2, urxvt, and Hyper terminal emulators.

Vim and Vim Airline

All Prot16 themes (including Ocarina) are available as plugins for Vim and Vim Airline. To install them, use your favourite plugin manager. With vim-plug:

Plug 'protesilaos/prot16-vim'

Then specify your choice in .vimrc. Use either the light or dark variant:

colorscheme ocarina_light
let g:airline_theme='ocarina_light'

" or use these instead
colorscheme ocarina_dark
let g:airline_theme='ocarina_dark'

Jekyll blog with Rouge for highlighting

To use Ocarina on your Rouge-enabled Jekyll site, go ahead and implement either the the light or the the dark variant.

This demo makes use of the Rouge gem to create the markup. It is a lightweight solution for highlighting code on the web. Bear in mind that it is not a perfect representation of the Atom packages or terminal ports.
