New theme: Eight

New theme: Eight

Postby a_westerlind on Sun Nov 04, 2012 8:05 pm

I'm mostly a Mac user, and it's easy to make Sublime Text 2 fit in on OS X (The Soda theme is amazing).
The "problem" here is that I use Windows to, and I couldn't find a theme for Sublime Text 2 that even tried to fit in on Windows. For Windows 7 the problem is not as obvious, but on Windows 8, with all the sharp corners, and nearly no gradients, there is really nothing that I could even stand looking at :)
That's why I made this theme.
Eight is a theme that is made with a single purpose. To make Sublime Text 2 feel at home in Windows 8.
I only made this in blue so far (there is not much color, but where there is color, it is blue right now), but I might add more colors in the future, or you could do it if you want to.

I might put this on Github some other day, but this will do for now.
Hope you like it :)

Very nice - please, put this on github!

WRT colors, it'd be nice to have a setting somewhere which dynamically changes the colors. I could have a crack at implementing that, but I'd feel more comforatable forking your project on github

Nice design! I like the color combinations because they are really eye-catching. I will like to try it this week.

Not a Windows user but it looks a perfect match for Metro, good job!
