"Molokai"? Like "Monokai"?
Indeed. This color theme is based on Tomas Restrepo's Molokai color scheme for Vim, which is based on a darker variant by Hamish Stuart Macpherson of the Monokai theme by Wimer Hazenberg for TextMate.
That means nothing to me.
Will it make things look funny?
Probably not. Maybe. Keep reading.
Here are some things that won't look funny:
- Font-lock (or "syntax highlighting", to sane people).
- The mode-line and minibuffer.
Cool! How do I use it?
Save the color-theme-molokai.el file to
YOUR_EMACS_PLUGIN_DIRECTORY, then add the following to your
<pre><code> (load "~/YOUR_EMACS_PLUGIN_DIRECTORY/color-theme-molokai.el") (color-theme-molokai) </code></pre>
Do I need anything special?
Sure. Emacs, of course (this was tested with GNU Emacs 23.1.1, but I imagine old version 22 releases would work, too). You'll also need color theme support.
My apologies! If there's something you think should be better, please report it. In particular, I'm sure it doesn't cover all possible use cases: someone is bound to find something that isn't themed and looks atrocious. If you are that someone, please let me know!
If the cool, dark background doesn't suit you, you might try the warmer variant almonst-monokai.
Anything else you want to tell me?
It doesn't support
C-x M-c M-butterfly.
Drat. Can I fix that?
