Arduino IDE Themes

Post by bitfogav » Sun Jan 20, 2013 7:38 am

This is a cool thing ive just found, playing around with the Arduino IDE I found you can change a .txt file text and change the Code editor colours. Now I can make the code look alot like Swordfish :lol: the file you are looking for is theme.txt file and the colour codes are based on HTML format.

The location of the theme.txt file on Windows is:

Some examples:
arduinoexm.jpg (39.86 KiB) Viewed 5620 times
If you want to try it out then heres the theme.txt file (I would make a copy of the orginal file first before you replace it with this one):
(1.09 KiB) Downloaded 284 times
If anyone else wants to share there theme then please post them :)
If you don't know what Voltage your country is using, you shouldn't be doing electronics ;-)

Sorry Bitfogav, I completely forgot to reply to this when I first saw it!

This is cool, I like to be able to customise the look of an IDE.

I like the black background, it reminds me of the 1990's using DOS :)
