HOMESETTINGS

There are dozens of options that enable you to personalize your experience with Boxy Theme.


BAR ▪️ TABS ▪️ FIND PANELS ▪️ QUICK PANELS ▪️ SIDEBAR ▪️ STATUS BAR ▪️ SCROLLBARS ▪️ TOOLTIPS ▪️ ADVANCED


Global

Global options enable you to control some aspects of UI appearance at once.

Generally, there are four kinds of global options which you can use:

Size

// Reduce size of all UI controls to extra small
"theme_size_xs": true,
// The default size of all UI controls
"theme_size_sm": true,
// Increase size of all UI controls to medium
"theme_size_md": true,
// Increase size of all UI controls to large
"theme_size_lg": true,
// Increase size of all UI controls to extra large
"theme_size_xl": true,

Font

// Reduce font size of all UI controls to 10 px
"theme_font_xs": true,
// The default font size of all UI controls is 11 px
"theme_font_sm": true,
// Increase font size of all UI controls to 12 px
"theme_font_md": true,
// Increase font size of all UI controls to 13 px
"theme_font_lg": true,
// Increase font size of all UI controls to 14 px
"theme_font_xl": true,

Accents

Accents

// The default accent of all UI controls
"theme_accent_blue": true,
// Set green accent color
"theme_accent_green": true,
// Set orange accent color
"theme_accent_orange": true,
// Set purple accent color
"theme_accent_purple": true,
// Set tangerine accent color
"theme_accent_tangerine": true,
// Set cyan accent color
"theme_accent_cyan": true,
// Set lime accent color
"theme_accent_lime": true,
// Set pink accent color
"theme_accent_pink": true,
// Set sky accent color
"theme_accent_sky": true,
// Set monochrome accent color
"theme_accent_mono": true,
// Set numix accent color
"theme_accent_numix": true,

Icons

// Enable a beautiful Material UI icons
"theme_icons_materialized": true,
// Enable a beautiful Atom UI icons
"theme_icons_atomized": true,

Background

// Enable the same background color for UI components
"theme_unified": true,

Each one of them (except accent & background options) may be overridden by setting a similar option specific to UI control.

For example, you want to increase font size of all UI controls via setting a global font size option. But due to this issue you can find that lower half of the tab label is cut off. In such cases just override font size by setting a font size option specific to the tab:

"theme_font_xl": true,
"theme_tab_font_sm": true,

Or, if you want to increase the size of all UI controls but leave a small status bar, you can set these options:

"theme_size_md": true,
"theme_statusbar_size_sm": true,

Bar

Bar options enable you to control some aspects of tabs' and sidebar's appearance at once.

You can enable a beautiful bar for your Boxy Theme. The color tint fits automatically the theme accent color you chose if you want to use colored bar.

// Enable a beautiful bar based on your theme
"theme_bar": true,
// Enable a beautiful colored bar
// Works only with `theme_bar: true,`
"theme_bar_colored": true,
// Enable a Material UI logo
"theme_bar_logo_materialized": true,
// Enable an Atom UI logo
"theme_bar_logo_atomized": true,
// Hide bar shadow
"theme_bar_shadow_hidden": true,

Also you can add a top margin to the tabs and sidebar, especially useful with the rounded tabs.

// Increase top margin of the tabs and sidebar to small
"theme_bar_margin_top_sm": true,
// Increase top margin of the tabs and sidebar to medium
"theme_bar_margin_top_md": true,
// Increase top margin of the tabs and sidebar to large
"theme_bar_margin_top_lg": true,

Tabs

Tab options enable you to control appearance of the tabs.

Tab Size

"theme_tab_size_xs": true,
// The default size of tabs
"theme_tab_size_sm": true,
// Increase size of tabs to medium
"theme_tab_size_md": true,

Advanced

You can customize themes via PackageResourceViewer. E.g. Due to Sublime Text 3 limitations related to the widget styling, we can't add options to its customization. That's why I always add similar changes to the theme manually. Let's say I want to change colors of the caret and selection:
