Solarized style for the Kod editor

Developed by Trip Leonard

This is a "solarized" style for the Kod editor (http://kodapp.com). The palette was developed by Ethan Schoonover (http://ethanschoonover.com/solarized)*. Installation

Copy the file to ~/.kod/mystyle_solarized.css then tell Kod where to find it by setting a configuration key:

$ defaults write se.hunch.kod style/url ~/.kod/mystyle_solarized.css

Or run the provided bash script setup within the git directory

$ ./setup

You might need to restart Kod for changes to take effect or select View->Reload style from the menu. Tho, setup should kill Kod.app. Then, simply open your ~/.kod/mystyle.css in Kod(it is saved as ~/.kod/solarized.css by the setup script) -- when edited and saved Kod will automatically reload the style, thus you see the effect of your alterations.


Currently there is one .css file with the light commented out. When you want to switch just comment out the dark, uncomment the light and save, Kod auto reloads when it notices that the file you just saved is the Kod CSS file.
