Phoenix Theme

Dark custom UI themes for Sublime Text 2, based on Soda Theme by Ian Hill (


Phoenix Dark Default Theme


  • Color icons for dark themes
  • Light theme


Phoenix theme is designed to work with the latest development build of Sublime Text 2.

Using Git

Alternatively, if you are a git user, you can install the theme and keep up to date by cloning the repo directly into your Packages directory in the Sublime Text 2 application settings area.

You can locate your Sublime Text 2 Packages directory by using the menu item Preferences -> Browse Packages....

While inside the Packages directory, clone the theme repository using the command below:

git clone "Theme - Phoenix"

  • Copy the folder to your Sublime Text 2 Packages directory

Activating the theme

To configure Sublime Text 2 to use the theme:

  • Open your User Settings Preferences file Sublime Text 2 -> Preferences -> Settings - User

Theme Customisation

Sublime Text 2 provides an elegant way to tweak existing themes without having to duplicate or maintain a separate copy of the original theme. If there are aspects of Soda Theme that you would like to adjust, take a look at the theme customisation wiki page.


Please note, Sublime Text dev builds move quickly and changes can occur with the theme API between releases, so there may be occasions where the theme doesn't quite work with a brand new dev release.

While developing the theme, I have documented some theme challenges and ideas encountered along the way.
