  • rainbow

    Rainbow Parentheses Improved, shorter code, no level limit, smooth and fast, powerful configuration. (by luochen1990)

    The parentheses color are not caused by this script, but by my usage of rainbow parentheses (some variant of https://github.com/luochen1990/rainbow) which I have configured for my usual light background vim theme.

    I did not spend time to set up a more empty vim configuration to take the screenshots.

    The script does not introduce any new colors, it just changes what is highlighted as cType.

    It does change the color of parentheses for "if" statements to be the same color as the keyword. I am undecided if I should keep that or not. Opinions from people not using rainbow or similar plugins are welcome.

    I can argue is easier to read without highlighting.

    I think colors break the flow of code in unintended ways, and mistreat comments (either overvalue with some pink color or undervalue with some toned down gray), and almost all themes make keywords extremely important.
