I run Sublime using Crossover Pro (on Debian) and it works perfectly. Should at least give it a try. ;)

Hey guys. I have been making this color scheme for the past couple of days and, now that I'm finished with it, I thought I'd share it with you.
It's a combination of Monokai and one other color scheme, Brilliance Black. I've tweaked most of the settings so that each and every element is clearly visible, but it's to my personal liking, so it probably won't suit everyone. I present to you: Sublimey :D

Hope you like it!

Hey, thanks for posting. Looks interesting though a bit distracting. When I first started looking for and messing with themes I came across one that had a pretty good idea behind the styling. It had a palette ranging from dark to light and the importance of the element being styled decided how bright or dark it would be styled as the eye is naturally drawn to things that are brighter.

Dominion Day is another low contrast theme which puts color theory to work for the maintenance coder. Analogous shades coax your eyes into focusing on the parts of your markup which tend to have the greatest visual impact for the end user. Sure, those DIV tags are important, but once typed you rarely need visit them again. Their attributes might be edited slightly more frequently, so they command a bit more attention, with executable code and the text which is actually drawn to the screen being the most visually pronounced elements. Absolutely no bolds, italics or underlines.

You can find that theme at: http://wiki.macromates.com/Themes/UserSubmittedThemes. Scroll down to Dominion Day to get a look at it and the basic idea behind it.

Perhaps you could mess with your theme and make it a bit more usable, but if you're happy with it that's all that matters.

Feel free to post a link to download it and I'll add it to the list :]

Yeah, now that I think about it, it IS really bright. I spent a lot of time just finding a way to colorize this bracket or this dot, that I totally forgot about usability. I just made it bright so it would stick out. I'll work on it today and I'll post the results.

EDIT: Here it is. I've made it a lot more subtle and it's a lot easier on the eyes and not that distracting. I took a little from Twilight, which was my personal favorite before this one :)

Anyhow, here's the preview and I've attached the theme in a file.

Cheers!

Just wanted to share my current setup :)

Here's what it looks like http://i.imgur.com/pKqId.png (I'm using this plugin to hide the menubar)

The Theme was loosely based off of the Minimal theme by myel.
The Colorscheme is just a slight modification of Monokai to fit the theme.

I attached the file with the theme and color scheme!

Thanks for posting that theme :] Added.

If you could come up with a quick name for it so it's a bit easier to differentiate it from myel's theme that'd be awesome.

That looks cool!

After the public version of Sublime Text X is available (this month, hopefully), I'd love to include some of these themes by default. While they would have to be redone for the new theme system in X, it is at least more flexible.

how exactly does the theming system works in X ? Can I create a separate theme, without touching the "Theme - Default" folder? How can I choose between those themes than?

And how (the hell) can I finally change this color:

I thougth that it was the "background_color" value in here:
Code: Select all
    {
        "id": "quick_panel",
        "class": "quick_panel",
        "row_padding": [2, 1],
        "background_color": [10, 10, 10, 255] // <---
    }


I think it worked once, but it doesn't anymore... :/ This color is my nemesis in theming the X.
