Yes I plan on using that feature in my next theme, thanks for showing intrest though! I was wondering do you have some experience in this? I'm new at customizing the IDE and wondering if you can help.
A bit of experience, mainly a few hours playing. In a previous job we had to make devices section 508 compliant to be able to sell to US government. In short 508 makes devices accessible for disabled. Things included were colour schemes for (partial) colour blind, Braille Buttons and switches, voice feedback, for blind, adjustable height control panels, voice control, visual alarms etc.
Creating a IDE theme with a target audience in mind e.g. colour blind would give your effort focus and you can verify you reached the goal.
Three forms of colour blindness come in mind:
- red green - most common ==> 7-10% of men (females < 1%)
- blue yellow - rare ( < 1%)
- complete colour blindness or monochromacy - even more rare
Another IDE theme could be the night view. In astronomy lot of apps have a sort of red-mode as this would put less strain on their eyes so the do not (less) need to adjust to the dark and see the stars. All those astronomy people programming their telescope SW outside in the dark
What kind of help are you looking for?
