Please add a TeXshop color scheme.

TeXShop is a popular LateX editor for Mac OS X. Its colors can be edited using Apple's default system, e.g. as described in this blogpost http://www.jkwchui.com/2010/03/subdued-texshop-color-scheme/

Solarized light color scheme for TeXShop: Run these commands in the OSX Terminal application to change TeXShop's color scheme to solarized light:

# solarized light color scheme

# background = solarized base3 = 253 246 227
defaults write TeXShop background_R 0.99
defaults write TeXShop background_G 0.96
defaults write TeXShop background_B 0.89

# commands = solarized red = 220  50  47
defaults write TeXShop commandred 0.86
defaults write TeXShop commandgreen 0.196
defaults write TeXShop commandblue 0.184

# comments = solarized base1 = 147 161 161
defaults write TeXShop commentred 0.58
defaults write TeXShop commentgreen 0.63
defaults write TeXShop commentblue 0.63

# foreground = solarized base00 = 101 123 131
defaults write TeXShop foreground_R 0.40
defaults write TeXShop foreground_G 0.48
defaults write TeXShop foreground_B 0.51

# index = solarized magenta = 211  54 130
defaults write TeXShop indexred 0.83
defaults write TeXShop indexgreen 0.21
defaults write TeXShop indexblue 0.51

# marker = solarized cyan = 42 161 152
defaults write TeXShop markerred 0.165
defaults write TeXShop markergreen 0.63
defaults write TeXShop markerblue 0.596

# insertionpoint = solarized base00 = 101 123 131
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_R 0.40
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_G 0.48
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_B 0.51

To use the solarized dark color scheme, run the following commands in the OSX Terminal application:

# solarized dark color scheme

# background = solarized base03 = 0  43  54
defaults write TeXShop background_R 0.00
defaults write TeXShop background_G 0.169
defaults write TeXShop background_B 0.212

# commands = solarized red = 220  50  47
defaults write TeXShop commandred 0.86
defaults write TeXShop commandgreen 0.196
defaults write TeXShop commandblue 0.184

# comments = solarized base01 = 88 110 117
defaults write TeXShop commentred 0.345
defaults write TeXShop commentgreen 0.043
defaults write TeXShop commentblue 0.459

# foreground = solarized base0 = 131 148 150
defaults write TeXShop foreground_R 0.514
defaults write TeXShop foreground_G 0.580
defaults write TeXShop foreground_B 0.589

# index = solarized magenta = 211  54 130
defaults write TeXShop indexred 0.83
defaults write TeXShop indexgreen 0.21
defaults write TeXShop indexblue 0.51

# marker = solarized cyan = 42 161 152
defaults write TeXShop markerred 0.165
defaults write TeXShop markergreen 0.63
defaults write TeXShop markerblue 0.596

# insertionpoint = solarized base0 = 131 148 150
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_R 0.514
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_G 0.580
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_B 0.589


Note that due to a bug in TeXShop, changing the foreground color does currently not work. The lighter color scheme still remains usable, but the dark scheme with black foreground text is really ugly.

The bug is even documented in the TexShop help system, see TeXShop Help Panel > How do I configure TeXShop > Hidden Preference Items: "[The foreground and insertionpoint color settings] have not worked since version 2.10. They will be fixed eventually, but probably not in the immediate future."

Related bug tickets can be found on TexShop's sourceforge tracking system, see
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1678501&group_id=155796&atid=797238
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1505331&group_id=155796&atid=797238

As a final note: To restore the default color settings that comes with TeXShop, you can either delete your ~/Library/Preferences/TeXShop.plist file (which will reset all your prefences!) or run the following commands:

# restore the default settings that come with TeXShop

defaults write TeXShop background_R 1.0
defaults write TeXShop background_G 1.0
defaults write TeXShop background_B 1.0

defaults write TeXShop commandred 0.0
defaults write TeXShop commandgreen 0.0
defaults write TeXShop commandblue 1.0

defaults write TeXShop commentred 1.0
defaults write TeXShop commentgreen 0.0
defaults write TeXShop commentblue 0.0

defaults write TeXShop foreground_R 0.00
defaults write TeXShop foreground_G 0.00
defaults write TeXShop foreground_B 0.00

defaults write TeXShop indexred 1.00
defaults write TeXShop indexgreen 1.00
defaults write TeXShop indexblue 0.00

defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_R 0.00
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_G 0.00
defaults write TeXShop insertionpoint_B 0.00

defaults write TeXShop markerred 0.02
defaults write TeXShop markergreen 0.51
defaults write TeXShop markerblue 0.13

=>
Can you please add these shell scripts to the solarized source code, so that other users may benefit from them.

Thanks for this. BTW the foreground color bug seems to be fixed as these scripts work for me with TexSchop 3.11

I have used the scripts and made my own custom scheme. I thought I might share it here:

defaults write TeXShop background_B 0.96

defaults write TeXShop foreground_R 0.00
defaults write TeXShop foreground_G 0.00
defaults write TeXShop foreground_B 0.4

defaults write TeXShop commentred 0.8
defaults write TeXShop commentgreen 0.0
defaults write TeXShop commentblue 0.4

defaults write TeXShop commandred 0.165
defaults write TeXShop commandgreen 0.63
defaults write TeXShop commandblue 0.596

defaults write TeXShop indexred 0.83
defaults write TeXShop indexgreen 0.21

Thanks for the tip! I noticed one error in the solarized dark color scheme.

defaults write TeXShop commentgreen 0.043

should be

defaults write TeXShop commentgreen 0.431

because 110 / 255 = 0.431. If you use the original value, your comments come out a very dark and almost unreadable purple. With the corrected value they're a nice dark gray, as intended.

Yet another Solarized light theme (Preview). The dark background line is TexShop highlighting the content inbetween matching brackets.

Hi,

Here is a ruby script made by someone. I can't remember who wrote this code, but it was really helpful for me.

# encoding: utf-8
module Colors
  def colorize(text, color_code)
    "\033[#{color_code}m#{text}\033[0m"
  end

Hi,

Here is a ruby script made by someone. I can't remember who wrote this code, but it was really helpful for me.

module Colors
  def colorize(text, color_code)
    "\033[#{color_code}m#{text}\033[0m"
