Lush Header

Lush CI

Lush is a colorscheme creation aid for Neovim. It gives you real time feedback as you edit, as well as color manipulation tools and some aids building a structured colorscheme.

Lush colorschemes can easily be exported for use without Lush, either as a lua table, vimscript commands or any other format. They can also be imported into other Lua systems to access your color data.

See some colorschemes Made with Lush.

Experimental Treesitter Interface

See issue for new syntax. Syntax is subject to change.


  • 2022-05-12: Neovim 0.7 is now a requirement, the 1.0.1 tagged version is the last 0.5 compatible release.
  • 2021-11-05: Deprecation warning, the compiler exclude_keys option has been deprecated in favour of the build system,


  • Neovim 0.7 or greater required to use Lush as a development tool
  • termguicolors enabled for true color support


Install via any package management system, for example, paq:

require paq { 'rktjmp/lush.nvim' }
