Eclipse Color Theme
Color themes for Eclipse.
Please note: The repository has been moved to http://github.com/eclipse-color-theme/eclipse-color-theme and this one is no longer updated.
Eclipse Color Theme makes it possible to switch color themes conveniently and without side effects. Support for importing themes is planned.
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.
Editors and themes
Eclipse Color Theme currently supports the following editors:
- Java properties
Adding a theme
To create a new theme, you'll have to get the source and build the plugin until theme importing/exporting is implemented.
Create an XML file in the com.github.fhd.eclipsecolortheme.themes
package next to zenburn.xml and change the colour values until
you're satisfied. Then add the file name to the constant
The keys are quite Java-specific right now, but the entries are mapped
to other editors (e.g. the method key is used for XML/HTML tags). To
see all possible keys, have a look at the constants in
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 (I suggest you use Zenburn for that) in this plugin's
ColorThemeManagerclass 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.
