Add Additional Dark Color Schemes

Postby Will Fastie » Wed Jun 20, 2018 11:34 am

Add color schemes as close as possible for:
  • Monokai
  • Dark+ (this is a slightly modified version of Visual Studio Default Dark)
Both these schemes can be seen in Visual Studio Code.

I consider both these schemes better than 2018's Default Dark theme. I particularly do not like gray comments on an almost-black background because the contrast is too low.

I've made a partial start on Dark+, which can be found at http://fastie.com/z/blumentals/themes/Dark%20Plus%20(VS).xsc. It only has settings for PHP; I haven't gotten to HTML, CSS, or JS yet.

Have you tried the Base16 color schemes I converted a while back? http://forums.blumentals.net/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=7157
There's several dark schemes among those.

Good grief. I should have known.

I've downloaded and I'll take a look when I get a chance. I see Monokai is in your extensive list.

I still think Rapid needs a few more dark themes in the default set.

I thought it interesting that Visual Studio Code's default list is relatively short - 4 light themes, 9 dark themes, and one high-contrast theme, a total of 14. Yet in those 9 default dark themes I found one I liked better than any of the 30 or so themes that come with Rapid. That was the reason I made this suggestion. It's also clear that dark themes are in vogue and VSC makes that clear by having twice as many dark themes.
