Discussion on: What's your favorite editor/terminal color scheme?

I use gruvbox for pretty much everything, though I tweak it a little bit (darker backgrounds in Vim, transparent background in terminals with an almost-black textured image as the background instead).

I've been happy with this since the day I discovered it:


Before this I used (probably) something like Tango for the terminal colours and Molokai or Jellybeans for Vim. I can't work well with light backgrounds.

I can't stand Solarized or its derivatives, which seems to be everyone's go-to scheme. I'm aware that Gruvbox takes some inspiration from Solarized but it does it in a much less annoying way and my customisations are mostly to up the contrast anyway.
