Base2Tone Sublime Text

Colorschemes for Sublime Text, Visual Studio Code (and Textmate) based on DuoTone themes by Simurai

Installation on Sublime Text

Use Package Control

The same output files are on package control, be it under a different name: DuoTones Colorschemes

Package Control is driven by the Command Palette. To open the palette, press ctrl+shift+p (Win, Linux) or cmd+shift+p (OS X). All Package Control commands begin with Package Control:, so start by typing Package.

The command palette will now show a number of commands. Most users will be interested in the following:

  • select Install Package with the arrow keys

When the popup show up start typing: Duotones Colorschemes and the package should show up.

Using Git

On Mac OS X the colorschemes.tmTheme files can be found in the following directory from the terminal,

$ cd /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages/

Where <USERNAME> is your own (user)name on the computer.

Or Locate your Sublime Text 2 Packages directory by using the menu item Preferences -> Browse Packages....

So while inside the Packages directory, clone the theme repository using the command below:

git clone

Download Manually

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

Activating the color theme

Preferences -> Color Scheme -> duotones

In your Preferences.sublime-settings file; open PreferencesSettings - User and add the following line:

	"color_scheme": "Packages/Base2Tone-sublime-text/Base2Tone-sea.dark.tmTheme",

  • Credits to Simurai whose DuoTone themes for Atom were a model for these colorschemes
  • Credits to Chris Kempson, whose Base16 Builder was used for conversion to the different output formats. It’s a remarkable building tool, and I would also recommend trying out the colorschemes he made with them.
