Hey peeps! This morning I spent some time making my Arduino IDE more like Sublime Text 2's Monokai color scheme (http://www.sublimetext.com). It's about as close as I can get, there really are not enough system variables to make it happen without more hacking on the source code (not really an effort I want to undertake). Regardless I think it's VERY nice if you like darker themes and thought I'd share it with you all.
Snack it up ;-)
THIS is the colour theme I've always wanted to get. I've found staring at a very white background is very disorientating but I wanted
to keep the Arduino IDE as I don't want to go through another learning curve by learning another IDE just for its background
Cheers BDub, Thanks for your contribution.
Thanks for this. Saved me a LOT of time getting the look I wanted.
I downloaded Liberation Mono (from http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/list/find_fonts?filter%5Bclassification%5D=monospaced&filter%5Bfamily_size%5D=1&filter%5Bdownload%5D=all&sort=a2z (http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/list/find_fonts?filter%5Bclassification%5D=monospaced&filter%5Bfamily_size%5D=1&filter%5Bdownload%5D=all&sort=a2z)) and changed preferences.txt to
It's not the default Sublime Text 2 font (Emilbus Mono), but I think it's very close.
just passing by to say TANKS A LOT ;)
OK, i got a bit board recently of the blue IDE colouring so I decided to start work on an editor for the theme.txt file
this is a work in progress and is by no means complete.
have a look and see what you think
it currently does not write back to the file yet so you cannot save your created themes but i will continue to work on this
Arduino Gui Colour Editor (https://www.dropbox.com/s/zpin5qh2x5y9thm/Arduino%20Gui%20Colour%20Editor.rar?dl=0)
it was written in visual basic 6 and works on windows 7 as that's what I used
What happened with Colour Editor?
