Solaryzed: A Generalisation of Solarized

I tried to keep the same fundamentals and to free some variables.

After many years using Solarized I changed to a new one. I use it for my terminal, emacs and most of my tools.

This is inspired by both Solarized and Nord. I switched because I wanted a greyer theme.

Ethan Shoovnover the creator of Solarized gave plenty of information about the creation of his colorscheme. And I stumbled upon the Nord theme. And I really liked it. But while the colors are great, it is not as easy to switch from light to dark theme than with solarized because Solarized has a lot of nice properties.

So I kept the main principle used to create Solarized but freed a few parameters. The tint of the dark and light colors for the background and the text, as well as the contrast of the colors.

And I created this minimal application in Purescript:

It is still not perfect, because the real theme I use for my website as a slightly bigger contrast for text.

Here is the CSS you could use:

b03
b02
b01
b00
b0
b1
b2
b3

y
o
r
m
v
b
c
g
:root {
    color-scheme: light dark; /* support color scheme */
    --b03: #202631;
    --b02: #2b313c;
    --b01: #656b74;
    --b00: #727781;
    --b0:  #989ea8;
    --b1:  #b0bac7;
    --b2:  #e5e8ed;
    --b3:  #f4f7ff;
    --y:   #a98d50;
    --o:   #aa6550;
    --r:   #b85a64;
    --m:   #af53b0;
    --v:   #846f93;
    --b:   #5679a4;
    --c:   #4c8493;
    --g:   #728b5c;

    --bg:  var(--b3);
    --fg:  var(--b02);
    --fg0: var(--b0);  /* lower contrast */
    --bg2: var(--b2);  /* second color block background */
    --fg2: var(--b01); /* second color block foreground */
    --acc: var(--o);   /* accent color */
}

@media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) {
    :root {
        /* Dark */
        --bg: var(--b03);
        --fg: var(--b0);
        --fg0: var(--b00); /* lower contrast */
        --bg2: var(--b02); /* second color block background */
        --fg2: var(--b1);  /* second color block foreground */
        --acc: var(--g);   /* accent color */
    }
}

body,.main {
    background: var(--bg);
    color: var(--fg);
}
