Here is a nice little addition to vi or vim. You can create a custom theme for vi/vim and download it to use locally. Nice!

From their FAQ:

Where do I put the colorscheme I just downloaded?
The colorscheme should be put in “~/.vim/colors”. If those directories don’t already exist, you will need to create them.

I’m using Vim in the terminal. How can I use my colorscheme outside of gvim?
There are few things to note here:
• Make sure you tell Vim how many colors your terminal supports. Just add this line to your .vimrc file in your home directory:
let &t_Co=256

Use 88 instead of 256 if that’s what your terminal supports.
• Download and unzip this plugin into the ~/.vim directory. After that, you should be set.

How do I change my colorscheme?
Just type “:colorscheme ” in Vim without the quotes. Tochange the default colorscheme, just add that line to your .vimrc file in your home directory.
