My brother just ported this to Vim. It can be found here: http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=3159
My problem is the opposite as often both the terminal and gedit are unreadable because of the light that come from the eastern window. Have you any suggestions on a color scheme?
I haven’t had that problem here at work. You can try to experiment between a dark scheme (like the one above) and a light scheme for gedit.
nice scheme. port to Vim?
Nice scheme. Do you have same for netbeans as well?
I’m sorry I do not have this scheme for netbeans. I have not tried using netbeans yet. If ever I get my hands on it, I will certainly be creating a port for this scheme for netbeans since I always code with a dark background.
@John, sorry brother, no port for Vim now. Just download Zendburn. This scheme is based on it.
Thanks, I love the color scheme! I’ll have to port this over to vim at some point.
@Brian, you should! My brother is looking for one
Thanks for this. I was pretty bummed when I went to download Thankful Eyes and found out that the website it was hosted on no longer existed. This is exactly the sort of theme I’ve been wanting for a while now.
