I stumbled upon an article that talks about how over-zealous syntax-highlighting can be counter-productive. It argues for only coloring comments and the difference between a comparison operator (==) and assignment (=).

The concept of such minimalistic coloring seems intriguing, so I wrote a little vim syntax highlighting theme that only colors comments.

It uses 256 colors, so you need a terminal setup to support 256 colors, however you can easily edit the colors in the .vim file.
If you do have a terminal that supports 256 colors, and you want to change the colors, you can use this chart to convert the numbers to colors.

To use the color scheme, just save the file below under ~/.vim/colors and type :color justcomments once you have started vim – or put colorscheme justcomments in your ~/.vimrc

Download the vim colorscheme here
