so this is a case where the toy doesn't look like what's advertised on the box. I tried to install the material-theme on my vim, which should be a standard exercise. However this is what it looks like on my vim:
vim colors content:
~/.vim/colors $ ls -1 guardian.vim hybrid.vim material-theme.vim molokai.vim molokaicpp.vim molokaiyo.vim molokaiyo_matlab.vim molokaiyo_r.vim molokaiyo_tex.vim molokaiyophp.vim monokai.vim monokambat.vim slate2.vim sweyla988775.vim two2tango.vim wombat.vim zenburn.vim
vim syntax files:
~/.vim/syntax $ ls -1 html.vim java.vim json.vim matlab.vim php.vim python.vim r.vim rmd.vim tex.vim
what am I missing?
it works after trying on macvim! however it's a bitter sweet feeling.. b/c i'm so used to working on vim from within the terminal.. having to launch a new app for vim almost defeats the purpose of using vim the first place for me.. so not sure what to do next.
