This is my .vimrc located under $HOME/.vimrc. I've installed Vundle.

set nocompatible              " be iMproved, required
filetype off                  " required

" set the runtime path to include Vundle and initialize
set rtp+=~/.vim/bundle/Vundle.vim
call vundle#begin()

" let Vundle manage Vundle, required
Plugin 'VundleVim/Vundle.vim'

Plugin 'dracula/dracula-theme'

call vundle#end()            " required
filetype plugin indent on    " required

" Put your non-Plugin stuff after this line

I'm able to execute :PluginInstall successfully installing dracula-theme. Unfortunately the theme is not applied and the style remains unchanged? Any clues?


Please add the following to your .vimrc

syntax on
colorscheme dracula
  • Add syntax on and now it works

  • I've added only syntax on and now it works. I've added also this plugin http://vimawesome.com/plugin/vim-airline but it doesn't work. Should I also add anything more in the config?
