Eclipse Color Theme
Color themes for Eclipse.
Eclipse Color Theme makes it possible to import and switch color themes conveniently and without side effects.
You can install the plugin from the update site. After installing, go to Window->Preferences->General->Appearance->Color Theme to change the color theme.
- When updating the plugin via Eclipse, go to the preferences page and press OK once, otherwise you won't see any changes. We're planning to fix this.
- When updating from an earlier version than 0.6, please uninstall the plugin and the update site, add the site listed above and install it again from there. Otherwise you won't see any updates.
Editors and themes
Eclipse Color Theme currently supports the following editors:
- Java properties
You can download additional themes or create your own on eclipsecolorthemes.org.
Adding a theme
To create a new theme, go to eclipsecolorthemes.org, create it, download it in *.xml format and import it from the Color Theme preference page.
Adding an editor
If you would like to add an editor, proceed as follows:
Go to the syntax coloring preferences page of the editor, e.g. C/C++->Editor->Syntax Coloring.
Look at the colour theme keys of one theme (See
ColorThemeKeysfor all available keys) and set up the syntax colouring using the colours defined there.
Open the editor's preferences file, e.g. workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings/org.eclipse.cdt.ui.prefs and create a new subclass of
ThemePreferenceMapperwhere you map the colour theme's keys to those of the editor. In the future, all mappings will be defined as XML, so you might as well see if the capabilities of the
GenericMapperare sufficient for your mapping (it doesn't support custom entries or dependent entries right yet). If so, just create a new xml file named after the plugin ID in the
Instantiate and add your mapper in
