Gruvbox Theme for Xcode!

An Xcode theme that colour-matches the wonderful gruvbox theme for vim! The gruvbox vim repo describes its theme as:

Designed as a bright theme with pastel 'retro groove' colors and light/dark mode switching in the way of solarized. The main focus when developing gruvbox is to keep colors easily distinguishable, contrast enough and still pleasant for the eyes.


  1. Download the .zip file from this repo.
  2. Close Xcode.
  3. Open Finder then from the menu bar choose Go -> Go to folder....
  4. Paste ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/UserData/FontAndColorThemes/ into the pop-up to open your Xcode themes folder. If this folder does not yet exist, you will need to create it first.
  5. Copy the unzipped Gruvbox.dvtcolortheme file into the folder.
  6. Open Xcode and go to Xcode > Preferences...
  7. Under Fonts & Colors, choose Gruvbox from the list and apply it.
  8. Enjoy!

Note: The theme is set to use SF Mono (San Francisco Mono). The font used in the screenshot is DejaVu Sans Mono for Powerline if you want to use it.
