    "I work in a command line for most of my day and staring at the bland 2 color scheme of VIM is annoying. But with this Weekend Project I think ive taken my commandline work a step further if for no other reason then I can integrate RGB while I work! But seriously having the ability to properly organize things and have another metric for my eye to quickly parse information is a big plus. "

    "So this answer is fantastic and a great way for beginners to go about exploring Vim color schemes. The issue comes in when you need to have a full list of the Vim color schemes to look at and choose from, this answer doesn't cover that. It basically just tells you how to start and to look the rest of them up yourself. "

    "I don't know about this site. It does a good job with the color schemes, but the interface of the site is jumbled and hard to read. I had a hard time trying to find what I wanted. Other than that, if you can get past the interface, it'll definitely help you find a color scheme for Vim. "
