Hello!

Today I was told about a Ubuntu blog:
https://eofla.wordpress.com/

Could PureBasic IDE look like the IDE there?:

Look at all the colours the source-code has in the image above.

Thanks!

If you like that, why don't you do it yourself?
Preferences -> Editor -> Coloring

Yes, search forum for dark theme. It reduces wear and tear on my eyes.

@Fred and team:

Is there any possibility that in a next version of PB the theme from the user in the topic above be used?:

Thanks!

Basically, there could be an option in the preferences, a "Theme:" with a combo box with three options:
1) Classic;
2) Light;
3) Dark.

2 ⇾ https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kenmo ... ight.prefs

3 ⇾ https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kenmo ... Dark.prefs

I think the ugly yellow default theme has the purpose to make Fred's monitor transparent in front of his wall :mrgreen:

Ah, that's why the default editor background color is yellow. :mrgreen:

@Fred
You can sell merchandise items (e.g. T-shirts).

On the wall this 'After Two Beers' yellow looks better than on the screen :D

It's also similar to 'after two decades' (or more) old yellowed computers. :)

<edit>
I usually think of the smell of rotten eggs when I see this color :lol:

You know there's already a combo box of themes in Preferences > Editor > Coloring, right?

Don't credit me for Solarized, it's been around for years in many different IDEs :)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solarized_(color_scheme)

I'm biased since I use it daily, but yes I'd like to see Solarized Light/Dark included with the IDE.

Even better, if the IDE would scan a folder(s) for color themes, and add them to the Preferences combo box.


EDIT: I also use Solarized Light for working on electrical schematics and reading PDFs, it's great!

+1

All syntax highlighting themes, including the standard ones, should be in a directory where each theme is in a separate theme file.

@kenno:
Your theme looks good.
My dark theme also has a color difference between variable and pointer variable.
Too many colors can quickly overtax, but I think that depends on the programming language which should be highlighted.

Yep better IDE for sure current looks old and outdated. Something similar to Monkey 2 new IDE. With scalable UI and fonts to work with different resolutions. I prefer the simple 0ne color icons lately. Not to much color. Press the shift + to increase scale shift - to decrease scale.
