Solarized Colorscheme for NetBeans

Developed by Ethan Schoonover es@ethanschoonover.com Ported to NetBeans by Brian Fenton [https://github.com/fentie]

See the homepage for the Solarized colorscheme for versions for Vim, popular terminal emulators and other applications.

If you have come across this colorscheme via the NetBeans-only repository on github, see the link above to the Solarized homepage or visit the github repository for Solarized.

Installation

  1. Download the NetBeans Solarized repo. Unpack the downloaded file, then manually create a new zip file containing the "config" folder.

  2. Open NetBeans, select Preferences, then Import in the lower left. Navigate to the zip file you created, check the Netbeans_Solarized_Dark and/or Netbeans_Solarized_Light box under the Fonts & Colors section.

  3. Restart NetBeans (just to be on the safe side).

  4. To use the new themes, go to Preferences, Fonts & Colors, and select either of the two new themes from the Profile dropdown, and hit OK.

Known Issues

Do not use the archive program built into Windows XP to create the zip file in step 1. It does not support file paths longer than a certain length, and that results in some missing preferences. If you are using Windows XP, use a third party archiver like 7zip (free).

Which Variation?

Normally there would be a discussion of 16- vs. 256-color versions of Solarized here, but I've only ported the 16-color version. This color scheme is also not as flashy/rich as the Vim ones due to lack of granularity in the NetBeans theme preferences.

The Values

The NetBeans color preferences UI supports RGB, HSB, and hex values. I prefer the RGB versions, which I've copied below for reference. For the full list of colors specified in other formats, see the main Solarized home page
