eclipse themes - darker


A dark theme for Eclipse 4.2+.

It intends to provide the experience like shown in the IDEA 12's darcula theme(exper experimentally.

NOTE: I have not enough bandwith now to add a full-fledged configuration for it. I am only planning to add fixings and a little tweakings to types of file(like .txt, soon) to mock darcula' color theme. However, this plugin is easy to modify. I suggest you modify the color string in the sources directly, then enable it by building it for yourself.
