Solarized in Terminal Vim

To get pretty colors in Vim and your terminal, install this: https://github.com/tomislav/osx-terminal.app-colors-solarized

Ofcourse the install doesn’t go as planned, you’ll need to add this to your ~.bash_profile:

export TERM=xterm-256color

# And if you want colors for 'ls', also these:
export CLICOLOR=1
export LSCOLORS=gxBxhxDxfxhxhxhxhxcxcx

I’ve pimped my Solarized further by using “Andale Mono 13pt.” as the font and a background opacity of 98% with Blur at 13%.

update: I’ve started using nvim, and am very happy with the switch
