Re: [Orgmode] Org-mode with color-theme.el

Here's the current state of my color-theme for org-mode. If you don't like white on black you will probably hate this theme. It is very colorful, so it actually looks better in a partially transparent window because it fades a little. It's no where near a final state.

My goal with this color-theme was to get almost the same look on a terminal and in "graphical" emacs. I customize my 16 colors or so in Putty and then use generic red, blue etc in my custom-set-faces for console, and then I have specific colors set in my color-theme for the rare occasion that I run graphical emacs.

Download: http://jaderholm.com/configs/color-theme-colorful-obsolescence.el

(require 'color-theme-colorful-deluge)

I've only customized font-lock, org, eshell and ido. I just noticed that calendar has fancy colors in graphical emacs so I'll probably customize that.

What I'd really love is a nice black on white theme that uses different fonts and sizes to give an elegant outline that looks more like a typesetters masterpiece than a hackers playground.

I'd like to kick in here with the following proposal:

Designing face colors is not really something I feel
competent for.  Maybe some of you do?  As far as I understand
color-theme.el, you can create your own themes and any customized faces
will be included, thus also any customized org-mode faces.
I'd be interested to see better schemes for fontifying
Org-mode files.  Maybe we can have a competition here for the
best color scheme for Org-mode, making use of color-theme as
the vehicle to install these.
