Eclipse Color Theme

Color themes for Eclipse.

Flattr this

Although it is possible to manually change all editor colors in Eclipse, there is no support for managing multiple color themes. It is in fact possible by importing/exporting preferences files, but this is inconvenient and likely to mess up your preferences.

Eclipse 4 will probably solve the issue once and for all by making it possible to change the user interface via CSS, but I'm not sure when it will arrive, and neither when I will be able to upgrade.

This plugin will make it possible to import, export and switch color themes conveniently without affecting other preferences. It is still work in progress, contributions are welcome.

You can install it from the update site.

Currently supported editors:

  • Text
  • Java
  • Java properties
  • XML

Available themes:

Both converted from the Eclipse preferences files in this blog entry.
