A gruvbox colorscheme for mutt

Gruvbox is a well designed, popular colorscheme for vim that was inspired by Solarized and others. For my recently uploaded modular vim configuration I have chosen gruvbox as default colorscheme, analogously to SpaceVim.

As I use vim for composing mails in mutt, I therefore would like to have gruvbox for mutt as well. Unfortunately, the only one I found did not work for me. This is why I fetched the color codes from vim and wrote my own gruvbox colorscheme for mutt, which looks like this:

Download and usage

I use neomutt (version 20180512) on Gentoo Linux and mutt (version 1.7.2) on Debian Linux. I split the colorscheme into two files:

The former defines colors for objects known by both, mutt and neomutt. The latter defines colors for additional objects only known by neomutt. Both files are part of my shutils git repository.

Simply download the two files, place them somewhere like ~/.mutt/ and source them in your ~/.mutt/muttrc like this:

source ~/.mutt/colors-gruvbox-shuber.muttrc
# For neomutt uncomment this line:
# source ~/.mutt/colors-gruvbox-shuber-extended.muttrc
