Don’t like the cuffs? Change them. Not sitting correctly over the shoes? Have them re-hemmed. Not enough velvet? No problemo.</p> <p>Or so I imagine if I could afford one.</p> <p>But what <em>I can</em> afford is my own colour scheme.</p> <p>I have been making changes to <a rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" href="https://github.com/fenetikm/falcon">falcon</a> over the last few months or so and I am about to make another major release as this time I think I have got it right.</p> <p>Unlike a suit, a colour scheme has to be a work horse and not a show pony. Like good design and timeless classics like Helvetica or the LBD it has to be something that <em>works</em>. Something that is gimmicky and garish like a fascinator will annoy and grate over time. Sure, wear it to the races but not to work every day.</p> <p>And so I think I am finally at the point, on the second time around, where everything is balanced and working well. I mean, just look at it:</p> <p><img src="/sites/default/files/falcon_01-fs8.png" alt="Falcon screenshot" /></p> <p>I like it so much that I have created settings for most things that I use - Vim, the terminal, ranger etc. and hey, even this Drupal theme.</p> <p>So how does one get started making a colour scheme? Well, earnest and imagined reader, you are in luck! This is going to be the first in a series of constructing your own colour scheme. I will go through getting started to tweaking everything possible for <em>all the things</em>.</p> <p>Stay tuned.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">// @Category</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/category/code" hreflang="en">code</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/category/ideas" hreflang="en">ideas</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-blog-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">// @Tags</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tag/vim" hreflang="en">vim</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tag/bespoke" hreflang="en">bespoke</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tag/syntax" hreflang="en">syntax</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tag/terminal" hreflang="en">terminal</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tag/tmux" hreflang="en">tmux</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tag/design" hreflang="en">design</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tag/falcon" hreflang="en">falcon</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-size field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">// @Size</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/size/snack" hreflang="en">snack</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-published-at field--type-published-at field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">// @</div><div class="field__item">13/08/2018</div> </div> Sun, 12 Aug 2018 21:06:33 +0000 admin 22 at https://michaelwelford.com
