Soda Theme

Dark and light custom UI themes for Sublime Text 2.


Soda Light Theme

Soda Dark Theme


If you are a git user, the best way to install the theme and keep up to date is to clone the repo directly into your Packages directory in the Sublime Text 2 application settings area.

Using Git

Go to your Sublime Text 2 Packages directory and clone the theme repository using the command below:

git clone https://github.com/buymeasoda/soda-theme/ "Theme - Soda"

Download Manually

  • Download the files using the GitHub .zip download option
  • Unzip the files and rename the folder to Theme - Soda
  • Copy the folder to your Sublime Text 2 Packages directory

Activating the theme

To configure Sublime Text 2 to use the theme:

  • Open your Sublime Text 2 User Global Preferences file Sublime Text 2 -> Preferences -> Global Settings - User
  • Add (or update) your theme entry to be "theme": "Soda Light.sublime-theme" or "theme": "Soda Dark.sublime-theme"

Example User Global Settings

    "theme": "Soda Light.sublime-theme"

Bonus Options

Syntax Highlighting Colour Schemes

The Soda Light screenshot uses a modified version of Espresso Tutti Colori and the Soda Dark screenshot uses a modified version of Monokai.

If you'd like to use the syntax highlighting schemes shown in the screenshots:

  • Download colour-schemes.zip
  • Unzip and place the extracted tmtheme files in the Sublime Text 2 Packages/User folder
  • Enable the colour scheme via Preferences -> Color Scheme -> User

Code Font

The code font shown in the screenshot is Meslo, which is a modified version of Menlo.

Release Notes

Soda theme is designed to work with the latest development build of Sublime Text 2. ST2 dev builds move quickly and changes can occur with the theme API between releases, so there may be occassions where the theme doesn't quite work with a brand new dev release.


While developing the theme, I have documented some theme challenges and ideas encountered along the way.


The theme contains some icons from the excellent Pictos series by Drew Wilson which I have a license for. Any use of these icons, other than for the purpose of the theme itself, would need to comply with Drew's icon licensing agreement.
