django theme for gedit
I created a theme based on the color scheme used on the Django website.
To install the scheme, download django1.xml and copy the django1.xml to /usr/share/gtksourceview-2.0/styles/
sudo cp django1.xml /usr/share/gtksourceview-2.0/styles/
and activate it in gedit > Edit > Preferences > Fonts & Colors.
