I have spend more time fiddling w/ vim colors (both gui and term) than I would like to admit. Just a small tip here. If you are using jinx (nateji’s excellent color scheme) in nvim (I think that is default in AL), I found it nice to mute the main color a little with
:hi normal guifg=aquamarine4
olivedrab4 or seagreen4 are other colors that have similar feel.
You can just do this in a running nvim instance and see if you like it. I do a lot of coding in early morning hours, before sunrise, and the white is too much contrast at that time.
One more that I turn to is navajowhite3. I find 3 to be just right, 4 is too dark and 2 has too much contrast.
This helped me. Hope someone else also likes it.
