Downloads

If you have come across this colorscheme via the IntelliJ-only repository on github see the link above to the Solarized homepage or visit the main Solarized repository.

The IntelliJ-only repository is kept in sync with the main Solarized repository. Issues, bug reports, changelogs are centralized at the main Solarized repository.

Installation

Option 1: Install using "Import Settings..."

  1. Go to File | Import Settings... and specify the intellij-colors-solarized directory. Clik OK in the dialog that appears.

  2. Restart IntelliJ IDEA

  3. Go to Preferences | Editor | Colors & Fonts and select one of the new color themes.

Option 2: Manual installation

  1. Copy Solarized Dark.xml and Solarized Light.xml to your IntelliJ IDEA preferences color directory. The directory varies, depending on which JetBrains IDE you are using. It is typically in:

    Mac OS X

    • ~/Library/Preferences/IntelliJIdea10/colors (IntelliJ IDEA)
    • ~/Library/Preferences/IntelliJIdea10CE/colors (IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition),
    • ~/Library/Preferences/WebIDE10/colors (WebIDE or PHPStorm).

    Windows

    • Documents and Settings/<user>/.IntelliJIdea10/config/colors (IntelliJ IDEA)
  2. Restart IntelliJ IDEA

  3. Go to Preferences | Editor | Colors & Fonts and select one of the new color themes.

Note About Fonts

Unfortunately, font settings are included in the color settings files. You should probably modify these in Preferences | Editor | Colors & Fonts | Font after adding the color schemes to your IntelliJ IDEA installation.

Note About Committing Changes

If you want to commit updates to the XML color scheme files, make sure to run the buildjar.sh script before committing to generate an updated settings.jar file as well. The script has been tested on OS X, on other operating systems you're on your own.
