Browsing the color schemes

There are many color schemes available online, since tastes differ so significantly. There's no single indisputably authoritative resource for color schemes. Your best bet is looking around and trying to find what catches your eye.

If you manage to get your hands on lots of color schemes while you're trying to find the one you like, you can use a helpful plugin called ScrollColors. Now, ScrollColors adds a :SCROLL command that lets you interactively cycle through your color schemes.

If you're using vim-plug, you can install ScrollColors by adding Plug 'vim-scripts/ScrollColors' to your .vimrc and running :w | source $MYVIMRC | PlugInstall.

There's also a collection of color schemes available at https://github.com/flazz/vim-colorschemes ...
