Visual Studio Code is a source code editor developed by Microsoft for Windows, Linux, and macOS. It is positioned as a “light” code editor for cross-platform development of web and cloud applications. It includes a debugger, tools for working with Git, syntax highlighting, IntelliSense, and refactoring tools. It has a wide range of customization options: custom themes, keyboard shortcuts, and configuration files. It is distributed free of charge and is developed as open source software, but ready-made builds are distributed under a proprietary license.
What are VSCode Themes for?
In Visual Studio Code (VSCode), you can configure your themes in several ways. The easiest way is to install a ready — made version. Since the choice is really very large, you can choose the most attractive option. The second way is to use the online theme editor, where you can customize all the colors yourself. And the third option is to make the necessary adjustments to the local settings using a ready-made theme. There are a lot of developers who don’t want to have their eyes hurt from working all day with a light-themed IDE.Visual Studio Code has a Dark+ theme by default, but it is possible that people will want something unusual. In this top, I will share with you the five most beautiful themes to install in Visual Studio Code.
1. Night Owl
This is a Visual Studio Code theme for the real night owls. Well-adjusted for those developers who like to code late into the night. Color choices have taken into consideration what is accessible to people with colorblindness and in low-light circumstances. Decisions were also based on meaningful contrast for reading comprehension and for optimal razzle dazzle. Starting from 1.0.0, there is a Light Owl Theme too. It is color balanced from the Dark version for easy viewing in daylight.
Dracula is also intended for those who like to work at night. What’s particularly nice is that all the themes/skins/highlighting/syntax of Dracula are open source, which means that if something goes wrong, you can easily contact the developer to let them know, or fix the problem yourself.
3. Shades of Purple
Shades of Purple is a professional theme with hand-picked and bold shades of purple that go along with your Visual Studio Code. Reviewed by several designers and released more than 75 themed versions to keep it up to date. It is one of the most popular VS Code themes on the VS Code Marketplace.
This extension for VS Code adds themes titled “Winter is Coming”. There are dark, dark with no italics, and light themes. They also support an italicized version, with fonts that support cursive italicized fonts.
5. Synthwave’84 VSCode
This theme looks like it came from the cyberpunk universe and at the same time, it is somewhat reminiscent of summer neon parties. In order to achieve the effect of text glow, after installing this theme, you will have to tinker with it a little bit. But I’m sure you’ll agree that this beauty is worth some effort to achieve.
