I haven’t optimized this theme for Ruby on Rails. If someone feels the urge to contribute, please don’t hesitate.

It’s very pleasing to the eyes, yes? And colorful too. Ooooooooh, it’s such a pleasure to work in this warm and friendly environment.

    This is a great start. I really hope you (or someone else) has a chance to add all the Rails stuff to this. Great work.

    I’ve used this theme non-stop since I first saw it.


  5. Jakob Wells Says:

    I really love how this looks here, but unfortunately on my display (when installed in TextMate) it doesn’t look so hot. I’ve got a MBP and I’ve calibrated the display. What display profile are you using?

  6. Dan Labute Says:

    Awesome looking theme. I don’t have a mac so I can’t use it in textmate, but I’ve used a couple of adaptations of it for vim, notepad++ and even mIRC.

    Great job!

    Ported this theme (roughly) to Emacs and Eclipse here: http://jaguilar.posterous.com/i-get-so-tired-of-searching-fo

    I couldn’t perfectly replicate what you did with the parsing engines in those editors, but the feeling is similar.

    It’s beautiful. I love it. I’m using an adaption of it in VIM and I’ve moved almost exclusively to VIM to text editing just because of it. I’m gonna try to make something similar for a BASH terminal theme. Damn, pink was never so hot. :)

  35. Soule Says:

    Awesome theme. The colors really make everything pop up and makes your code really stand out :D. However, I changed the background to add a little more contrast since i didn’t like the way the brown conflicted with the colors; must be my eyes.

    Thanks for this!
