Oceanic-Next.vim is a neovim theme inspired by Oceanic Next for Sublime. It is not a direct port, but uses some colors from the sublime theme, that are fitted to work with neovim and vim8.

For best results, it is suggested that you use the following syntax plugins.


All major plugin managers for vim/nvim are supported

<PACKAGE_MANAGER> 'mhartington/oceanic-next'

For vim, add the following to your .vimrc.

(On Google Cloud Shell try to set t_Co=256 instead of set termguicolors even though your vim version is 8)

" Theme
 syntax enable
" for vim 7
 set t_Co=256

" for vim 8
 if (has("termguicolors"))
  set termguicolors

colorscheme OceanicNext

For neovim, add the following to your init.vim.

" For Neovim 0.1.3 and 0.1.4

" Or if you have Neovim >= 0.1.5
if (has("termguicolors"))
 set termguicolors

" Theme
syntax enable
colorscheme OceanicNext

There is an included theme for vim-airline, to use it, just change the airline theme to:

  let g:airline_theme='oceanicnext'

There is a light mode, but it still needs some work. Currently, light mode has issues with cursor, need to tweak the colors a bit for that. Also, the included airline theme could use some work in light mode. Right now it is the exact same as the dark version, I'd like to tweak this a bit. If anyone would like to contribute, I'd be happy to accept a Pull Request.


If your terminal and setup supports it, you can enable italics and bold fonts with the following setting

  syntax on
  let g:oceanic_next_terminal_bold = 1
  let g:oceanic_next_terminal_italic = 1
  colorscheme OceanicNext

If your terminal has transparancy, you can enable it in neovim by adding the following lines to your init.vim after calling colorscheme OceanicNext:

hi Normal guibg=NONE ctermbg=NONE
hi LineNr guibg=NONE ctermbg=NONE
hi SignColumn guibg=NONE ctermbg=NONE
hi EndOfBuffer guibg=NONE ctermbg=NONE

Each line above disables the background for a given highlight group (e.g., LineNr). You can choose which to disable. This will show your terminal's background (whether or not it's transparent). For best results, use an Oceanic Next color scheme in your terminal.
