Moving further towards the Dark Side


Posted on 28th June 2011 by r2 in Visual Studio

I’ve been a proponent of dark coding environments for many moons, back to Turbo C++ and that blue.  In fact, my current Visual Studio template started way back in the first version of Visual Studio for .NET. I actually painstakingly hand-copied my colors from HomeSite.   

At the recent Atlanta Code Camp, I overheard someone mention a Visual Studio Theme Editor that goes beyond your personal editing colors and extends into the actual Visual Studio shell (drool).  After a quick look around, I found the Visual Studio Theme Editor and a really great .vstheme file that gets me pretty close to the Expression products. 

Below is what I’m looking at now.  I am a happy man.
