    Judging from the screenshots it uses even too many colors (4 shades of green? Really?), which I think may actually lead to more confusion and difficulty to parse things than having no color scheme, but it looks so playful that I can’t really not appreciate it!

    May be great for presentations and the like, the light team probably really shines in white slides (having a light grey background will also help to make it look like a snippet)

      This looks really nice! I’m all for color scheme diversity.

        I wish there were a way to use a text environment with a programmatically created background with the grain of fine paper, and random imperfections to the typefaces suggesting physical type interacting with physical paper. That’d be skeuomorphism I could really get behind.

          you could try simulating this with a pen and paper. take the pen and mark the paper with the glyphs you would normally type. you’re only approximating the font rasterization process, but depending on your skill you can make a good enough approximation.

            Interesting. Do you have a github repo I could fork to try this out?

          2. 1

            depending on your window manager, you could do this by just setting it as your background and letting your editor be very slightly transparent.

            i’ve often tried this, though, and it never works out.

            I know someone will burn me at the stake for asking this, but any chance of an emacs port?
