"Are you going to support editor X?"

We hope so, but we need your help to accomplish that. Since you're already using app X you're probably much more experienced in it than us. So give it a try first!

"How do I submit a new theme?"
  1. Create a new repository based on this template.
  2. Build the new theme using the Color Palette above.
  3. Finally, submit an issue with a link to your repository. Once the theme is accepted, we will move the repository under the Dracula organization and give you rights to maintain it 😀

Accessibility W3C

The colors maintain a 4.5:1 contrast ratio, complying with WCAG 2.1 | Level AA.

The Dracula Theme Team

Dracula is a project created by Zeno Rocha with the help of many outstanding contributors and maintainers, and each theme has its maintainer listed in the Team section of its README.

On April 13, 2022, Lucas de França officially joined the team, and you can read more here.

Over the years, Dracula has grown to support many more editors. With that came the challenge of supporting many editors, terminals, shells, and more in the same repository. Some package managers require specific files and layouts, which cause conflicts and make them harder to maintain.

So, it was decided to change Dracula from a one-repository theme to an organization. All themes have now been migrated to their repository. With this change, we can better support package managers and list maintainers, make installation instructions easier to find, and support independent releases.

See Dracula organization for all of our repositories.
