enzyme.vim - a Terminal.app Friendly Color Scheme

I finally got fed up of not being able to read code in Terminal.app when it was being highlighted in Vim. It seems no matter what color scheme I used, there was always some text that I couldn’t see properly. This is mostly because Terminal.app renders red and blue too dark to be readable in many conditions if they are set on a black background.

I decided to bite the bullet and write my own Vim theme, which actually wasn’t that hard. It’s called enzmye and you can get it from vim.org. It currently doesn’t do anything fancy, but it’s readable under Terminal.app and that’s all I care about.

Feedback and improvements are appreciated. Make sure you follow the instructions for setting up your terminal.
