Equinox is a medium-to-high contrast theme that is meant to show the balance between the seasons. The theme’s overall presentation hints towards the blue side of spectrum. Even ‘warmer’ colours are relatively subdued to be closer to their ‘cold’ counterparts. Equinox comes in light and dark variants, while using a single 16-colour palette.
Packages or ports of it are available for Vim
and Atom (deprecated as of 2019-05-04), as well as the Xfce4, RXVT-Unicode (urxvt), and XTERM terminal emulators.
UPDATE 2019-05-04: Prot16 is not actively maintained. The themes for Vim and terminal emulators should still work though. Users are encouraged to use my Tempus themes instead.

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).
