## Summary:

  # Ef (εὖ) themes for GNU Emacs


  The `ef-themes` are a collection of light and dark themes for GNU Emacs
  whose goal is to provide colorful ("pretty") yet legible options for
  users who want something with a bit more flair than the `modus-themes`
  (also designed by me).  Watch the presentation, which demonstrates each
  of the eight themes in the collection:

Version 0.10.0 on 2022-12-02

New user option for highlighted region

  The `ef-themes-region' accepts a list of symbols that affect how the
  region looks.  The manual or the variable's doc string describe the
  technicalities.  Here is a sample:

  │ (setq ef-themes-region '(intense no-extend))

  Remember that changes to theme user options must be done before
  loading a theme.  For any subsequent customisation, a theme re-load is

The `ef-themes-headings' now affects the Org agenda

  Before, the Org agenda headings would inherit from the generic heading
  levels 0 and 1.  This had undesired effects, as users often need a
  taller typeface for prose (e.g. regular Org files), though not
  necessarily for viewing their already well-structured Org agenda.

  The `ef-themes-headings' can now control the Org agenda date and
  structure headings directly.  A complete example:

  │ (setq ef-themes-headings ; read the manual's entry or the doc string
  │       '((0 . (variable-pitch light 1.9))
  │     (1 . (variable-pitch light 1.8))
  │     (2 . (variable-pitch light 1.7))
  │     (3 . (variable-pitch semilight 1.6))
  │     (4 . (variable-pitch semilight 1.5))
  │     (5 . (variable-pitch regular 1.4))
  │     (6 . (variable-pitch regular 1.3))
  │     (7 . (variable-pitch 1.2))    ; absence of weight means `bold'
  │     (agenda-date . (semilight 1.5))
  │     (agenda-structure . (variable-pitch light 1.9))
  │     (t . (variable-pitch 1.1))))

  In Org agenda buffers, the "structure" is the type of heading that
  describes the current block of content.  In the generic agenda, it is
  the first line, which reads something like `Week-agenda (W48):'.

  Note that Org re-uses heading levels past 8.  This is not the theme's
  work, so heading 9 looks the same as 1.  Check the user options
  `org-level-faces', `org-n-level-faces' for ways to change this.

Lots of small tweaks to colour values

  All themes have enjoyed attention to their details.  The general idea
  is that some colours are fine-tuned to look better in their context.
  In most cases, the change is subtle and can only be noticed when
  comparing samples side-by-side.  Some more noticeable effects:

  ⁃ All neutral backgrounds that are used for elements such as the
    `tab-bar-mode', the `header-line', the mode lines, and the like, are
    all amplified.  They should now be easier to discern, especially on
    monitors with inaccurate reproduction of grey values.

  ⁃ The `match' face, which is used by Grep, Occur, and related, now
    uses a coloured background instead of a neutral grey.  This makes it
    easier to stand out.  The choice of colour is consistent with the
    backgrounds used by Isearch for the current and other matches: they
    do not clash (e.g. a user may perform a search inside an Occur
