A Sublime Text theme based on Cobalt2 by Wes Bos. Imagine though, instead of yellow in all the below screenshots, that it's instead a lovely bright blue shade, as seen on

A refined colour scheme that is easy on the eyes and takes small UI elements into account. Includes full Sublime Text theme (sidebar, search, tabs, etc...) as well as support for SublimeLinter, git diffing and a growing number of plugins.

See below for more information on the original Cobalt2 theme. Read more at


  1. Open package control toolsCommand Palette and type Install Package

  2. Search for Cobalt2 and hit enter

  3. Penultimately, open PreferencesSettings - User. Add the following lines. Only the first two are required but I recommend using all of them:

    "color_scheme": "Packages/Theme - Cobalt2/cobalt2.tmTheme",
    "theme": "Cobalt2.sublime-theme",   
    "highlight_line": true,
    "indent_guide_options": [ "draw_normal", "draw_active" ],
     "highlight_modified_tabs": true,
     "line_padding_bottom": 1,
     "line_padding_top": 1,
     "wide_caret": true,
     "caret_extra_bottom": 2,
     "caret_extra_top": 2,
     "caret_extra_width": 3,
     "caret_style": "phase",
     "bold_folder_labels": true,
  4. Finally, restart Sublime for the Theme to be fully applied.

color_scheme defines how the code looks and theme defines how the sidebar, tabs, search, command palette work.


Sidebar Font Size

Change the sidebar's font size by using these settings in your user config:

"sidebar_font_big": true,
"sidebar_font_small": true

Sidebar Padding

Adjust the sidebar's padding by using these settings in your user config:

"sidebar_medium": true,
"sidebar_large": true,
"sidebar_xlarge": true


  • For sidebar icons, you need to be running the latest version of Sublime Text 3 - this feature is very new and not supported in older versions of Sublime Text.

While Cobalt2 covers all languages, I write mostly JavaScript and CSS so I welcome any additions for other languages.
