Recently I got more time to catch up on racket-mode. I improved two things that happen to fit one theme — an extraordinarily advanced UX concept I call, “scrolling down to the point of interest.”

Emacs Themes

:: Emacs

Until a few months ago I didn’t use Emacs themes. A custom-set-faces form in my init file gradually accumulated face specs like a lint-roller.

Then I started to use Solarized. Mostly light, sometimes dark. Switching between them using M-x load-theme worked fine.

Later I liked the look of Material. Although too high-contrast to use full-time, it works well in certain situations.

After I installed it I had two annoyances:

  1. I didn’t love the 3D “button” look it gives org-mode headings. Must tweak.

  2. Switching between the Solarized and Material themes using load-theme definitely did not work well: If the old theme defined a face, but the new theme did not, the old face would remain in effect. So for example I might switch to Material then back to Solarized, and get a weird mix of mostly Solarized but with Material org headings.

Here’s what I’m doing to address both issues.
