Coding in the Dark Side (with Eclipse!)


screenshotGetting back to the old days where I used Emacs to code (ok, more than ten years ago), now I’m using a dark theme in Eclipse. Dark themes are less eye-stressing and now are becoming popular with editors like IntelliJ, Sublime Text and the last Visual Studio. But Eclipse is not so easy to setup in dark colors…

The Eclipse Juno platform supports styling of the SWT widgets via CSS, but many other elements must be setup manually, so I published my CSS and setup instructions in a GitHub repository: https://github.com/albertoruibal/eclipse_dark_css

Welcome to the dark side!
