Custom syntax highlighting and dark UI

I did a little hacking on the processing UI and realized arduino was pretty much built off the same IDE (not sure which came first). But figured I would port the changes over to ardiuno too since it wouldn't take much extra work. here is what I was able to achieve. I can only look at a white UI for so long... hah.

button states:

I really would like to do more with it, but I didn't have time to poke around a all the files-- just found a few images and code theme files. let me know if you're interested and I'll write up a tutorial, or video of it, its pretty easy just copying some files over. maybe someone has more experience with this and can tell me where I can actually move placement of buttons and maybe edit scroll bars and such.

ideally I would like to do something like this (note this is the processing version):

Think this is pretty sweet. Would like a tutorial or maybe a zip file with updated files…

Wow this looks really cool. Can you post some more information? Is it Mac only?

I will write up a tutorial tonight on it, it involves changing some settings and digging into a lot of directories. Not too bad though. I wrote one on the processing side, and its very similar: http://hellowoo.com/processing/dark-theme-syntax-highlighting/

at the moment it's MAC only, however I will port it to PC soon--if I have time tonight I will do that as well.

ok here is the mac version of the mod. It should be easy enough to get the PC version rocking too http://hellowoo.com/arduino/dark-ui-theme-syntax-highlighting/

I will try to add PC side of things soon.

I changed all the stuff in the editor window, just don't have the buttons....

That's very nice, any chance to get it on Linux?

Really great job, I hope PC version will come early !!! :D
