Back Home to Wombat

For a long time, Wombat was my preferred Vim color scheme, but about a year and a half ago, I had become bored with it. I wandered in the desert, looking for new color schemes. I turned to Obsidian, Jellybean, Twilight, Tomorrow and its variants, Solarized and its variants, and even Monokai—and they’re all good, except perhaps for Monokai—but at last, I’ve returned to Wombat.

Here’s an example of Wombat:

The Wombat theme in Vim.

The constituent colors work well together (basically variants of RGB, plus white and shades of gray), and it’s dark, so it’s easy on the eyes.

Maybe I’ll leave Wombat for good one day, but it’s just such a good color scheme. It also exists for other editors, although the color assignments are not exactly the same as with Vim.
