Favourite Vim Colorscheme?

First of all, yes that spelling is correct because it is a Vim keyword – not English 😛

I’m sure you’ve noticed things have been a bit quiet around here lately… no I didn’t get attacked by sharks on my holiday, but I did decide to take the plunge and turn my attention to learning Python in more depth. Actually, that’s just a small part of where I’m going – I’ve started to wean myself off Windows! That’s right, no more PowerShell, no more C#, no more Visual Studio… in fact if it all works out, the only thing I’ll need Windows for in the future is gaming.

Of course you can learn Python just as easily on Windows as you can any other platform, but I like to develop in the same environment I plan on deploying to. Which means getting familiar with a terminal based development environment, which basically means getting familiar with Vim. But alas, the standard Vim colour schemes just didn’t cut the mustard for me, and after trying a few on it came down to a choice between darkburn, and BusyBee.

In the end I just couldn’t decide between the 2, so I ended up with a bastardised mix of both which I have imaginatively titled BusierBee. For anyone learning their way around these kind of tweaks, this page is mighty handy to help you with terminal colours. Here is what it looks like:

There are obviously loads of Vim colour schemes out there, tell me about your favourite in the comments!

    Well, I’m a bit of a Microsoft junkie, but since they’ve turned their back on me (http://www.i4u.com/article20395.html) I guess I’ll have to start learning all this shit too… 😀

    How the devil are you anyway, old bean?
