This repository contains and handful themes I've found useful when working with Xcode 4, in addition to a Ruby script I've discovered to help convert Xcode 3 themes into the format required by Xcode 4.
Solarized Light & Dark: Both themes are based off the amazing work for the original Solarized theme. Github user varikin took the Solarized palette and made the Solarize Dark theme for Xcode 4. I forked his repository and added the Solarize Light theme as well. I'm including both in this repository, but both have been pushed back upstream to his repo.
Humane (modified): This theme was originally made for Xcode 3 by Damien Guard. I've made some modifications to it (including a switch to Menlo 12 pt. instead of Panic Sans 11 pt., though the two typefaces are nearly identical).
ObsidianCode: A theme made by Ben Scheirman. An Xcode 3 version can be found here:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:jbrennan/xcode4themes.git mkdir -p ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/UserData/FontAndColorThemes/ cp *.dvtcolortheme ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/UserData/FontAndColorThemes/
The Ruby script (which is public domain) was found here and is being included for convenience. To use it, do the following:
- Install the plist gem with
sudo gem install plist
- Run the script with
./dvtcolorconvert.rb ~/Library/Application Support/Xcode/Color Themes/yourXcode3Theme.xccolortheme(this directory won't exist unless you've made custom themes for Xcode 3, which could be as simple as duplicating an existing theme).
- The converted theme will be in the same directory as the original.
- As with installing the other themes, simply copy the converted theme to
- Restart Xcode 4.
