1. 8

    Here is mine I’m running vanilla GNU Emacs (was previously on neovim for a year but vimscript is not an adecuate programming language) and I also use vis or vi when I need to edit something quick. Vis is beautiful but had to let it go because it lacks community, and interactive programming for Clojure and Common Lisp with Emacs cannot be beat (at the moment). I’ve been using VoidLinux for three years on a T410s, and I’m planning on moving permanently to OpenBSD because of its stability, cohesiveness and vision. st is the terminal emulator of my preference, because it has a clean code base, it runs fast and with minimal memory footprint. Window manager is cwm.

      I really like the color scheme. Could you please share it?

      1. 2

        Right now, I’m at work, but promise to upload it when I get home. It’s a modified version of punpun-light for emacs. I changed some colors (for st and emacs) using the palette from inkstained-vim.

        1. 1

          Also, what’s the font? (Works really well with the color scheme)

          EDIT: oh, I realized it might be the Iosevka Slab that’s mentioned in the screenshot? :facepalm:

          1. 1

            :) . It is indeed Iosevka Slab, it is a beautiful font with decent hinting (not Luculent’s level of hinting but still very good) it also has decent UTF-8 support and looks elegant in my opinion, I like semicondensed fonts that look large and tall.

              I’ve tried to emulate that theme in Vim and I like the result :) https://twitter.com/janiczek/status/1057610214923472898

              1. 1

                It looks outstanding. I think I’m going to continue modifications on it (basically adding foreground colors for faces of not previously supported modes: cider-mode, company-mode), publish it on MELPA and call it ‘puninked’ because (mine version) mixes palettes with punpun from Emacs and inkstained from Vim, e-inky is also a tempting name. Now, I’m curious why it doesn’t work with sans-serif Iosevka on your machine? is it the terminal emulator?

                1. 1

                  I meant the “not working” mostly as an aesthetic combination. (The terminal can show the combinations just fine.) Can’t even say why those specific combinations work well for me. Maybe e-ink -> Kindle -> serif font is the association in my brain? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

                  I named the theme paper in my vimfiles :) Here it is if anybody wants to try. https://gist.github.com/Janiczek/9730ec0e1b60e59220ea0a24e2d4c09b

                  It mostly evolves as I go and edit different filetypes with it and find something that could be better :)

                  1. 1

                    In regards of using serif with that particular color scheme I think you are right. In my case it feels really comfortable reading text for hours at a time with zero-fatigue, a relaxed experience.

        2. 1

          Can I ask, is this you leaving Void or you going to OpenBSD? Which part do you think is the bigger driver in your switch?

          1. 1

            Honestly, going OpenBSD is the only driver here. I think it is the last true Unix system these days. GNU (the userland utilities) are fragmented and incorporate too much ‘features’, and Linux is getting more bloat on every release. OpenBSD developers take appropriate decisions on design with security as a first consideration.

          2. 1

            Huh, cwm has shadows? Or is that a separate compositor feature?

            1. 1

              You are correct, I’m using compton, changing only the shadow-opacity to 0.3, and adding Firefox class windows exceptions, the rest is the default configuration.
