I love huge text editor colour schemes. I’ve tried dozens of them over the years but always found myself coming back to trusty old cobalt. I liked this theme quite a but but I didn’t love it. So, over the years I’ve tweaked and tuned cobalt into a theme that I am very happy with. Its easy on the eyes, works well across many langages and takes note of those little UI elements like the caret, searches and bracket matching.
I have had quite a few friends use my theme and they seem to be sticking with it. So, I’ve decided to release it to the masses. To download it, head on over to the github repo. As always, would love to hear any feedback you may have
Quick aside: I’m in the process of writing a book about Sublime Text. If you are interested in improving your text editor productivity, please sign up below and I’ll give you a hoot when it goes live.
A Sublime Text theme based on our old blue friend cobalt.
A refined colour scheme that is easy on the eyes and takes small UI elements into account. Includes full sublime theme (sidebar, search, tabs, etc…).
See below for examples.
Installation is easy, just follow these steps:
- Open your Sublime Text packages directory
Drop in the
Theme - Cobalt2directory here (Right into /Preferences/)
- Lastly, open
Settings - User. Add the following two lines:
"color_scheme": "Packages/Theme - Cobalt2/cobalt2.tmTheme", "theme": "Cobalt2.sublime-theme",
If these are the last two lines of your settings file, make sure to omit the trailing
