A syntax theme that serves a purpose in SublimeText/TextMate

I spend much of my time writing and reading a variety of code in text editors. Eye fatigue is something that I struggle with due to my habits. I’ve come to understand that colors and visual syntax ‘brought to life’ with the right tweaks relieves the eye strain. Yet for some reason, I’ve never found a good color palette syntax that does what I need it to do and does it well ( a big shout-out to tmTheme-Editor, absolutely brilliant ). I wanted something that is functional and relieving on my eyes. I use SublimeText as my editor (with vim bindings), but my theme can be applied to just about any editor that supports tweaking the syntax highlighting (Sh). My theme is a standard TextMate theming standard compliant theme. I’m sure it could be adapted for other editors too (please fork it!) .
