Good Day,

Is there a way to disable the 'cheerful' colors in vi?

Hi

In Vim :syn off. Not sure whether it works in Vi too. Try it.

RE: Colors in vi

Hi

Wondering why you want no highlighting.
  • In case you find the text vs. background contrast too low, you can tell Vim about your terminal's background color intensity. Type :set bg=light or :set bg=dark, and Vim will adjust the text colors to increase contract.
  • In case you find the color palette disturbingly color rich, you can change the color scheme. Type for example :color pablo for a mildly colored scheme. ( I got it installed together with Vim. ) ( Note that after typing :set color you have tab completion for the available schemes. )
