Background about ~/vimrc file
In order to apply color schemes to VIM you would need to update the .vimrc file which is a configuration file that is read when Vim starts up. Using this file you can customize Vim's behavior and settings to suit your preferences. The file is a plain text file that you will find under the home directory.
Steps: Setting Custom Color Schema (Syntax Highlighting)
- Open Terminal/Bash Console.
- Type the below command to open the .vimrc file.
- Now add the following line at the end of the file (if the file is blank at the beginning)
Some of the colorschemes available by default to choose from:desert: A low-contrast colorscheme with warm, earthy tones.
molokai: A high-contrast colorscheme with a dark background and bright colors.
gruvbox: A retro-inspired colorscheme with muted colors and a warm background.
solarized: A popular colorscheme with a light and dark variant, designed to reduce eye strain.
monokai: A high-contrast colorscheme with bright, saturated colors.
- Make sure to save and quit the file using :wq
- Now when you will open VIM again you will see the color scheme has been applied.
As you would see in the below example, we created a file Hello.java and as we type the code and syntax get highlighted in colors based on the keyword and string.
