About the Tempus Themes project

Tempus is a collection of themes for Vim, text editors, and terminal emulators that are compliant at the very least with the WCAG AA accessibility standard for colour contrast. The contrast between foreground and background values is >= 4.50:1 or >= 7.00:1. The idea is to provide consistent colour palettes, while preserving legibility.

Tempus themes repositories

Each repo has instructions on how to use the themes for the application of your choice.

GNU/Linux distro packages

UPDATE 2018-08-09. These packages are out of date. I am no longer using Arch Linux. I still intend to maintain them, though it will take some more time. If you need help, contact me.

At present, users of Arch Linux and derivatives can get the following packages from the Arch User Repository. They contain the entire theme collection.

Contributing

The project revolves around the Tempus themes generator. This is the tool that contains the colour scheme specs and the application templates. See its CONTRIBUTING.md.
