Use of italics in Vem's default color schema
vem-dark, the default color scheme of Vem, provides support for syntax highlighting with italic fonts. Since not all terminal emulators support displaying italic text, this option is disabled by default. If your terminal can display italic characters, then you may enable this feature by adding this to your vemrc file:
let g:vem_colors_italic = 1 colorscheme vem-dark
vem_colors_italic is the variable that controls if the feature is enabled (1) or disabled(0). The second line reloads the color scheme to make the change effective.
Mark maximum column limit for your code
Many programming coding styles establish a maximum width for code. This is, typically, set to 80, 100, 120 or even more characters. By default, Vem always displays the column the cursor is at, which may allow you to know if you have surpassed or not the column limit. However, it can be useful to see that limit at all times. To do so, you can use the colorcolum option:
Highlight current line
Some people like to have the line where the cursor is currently placed highlighted. That is exactly what the option cursorline does:
In Vem's default color scheme, setting this option changes the background of the current line to a lighter color.
