Check out my new FlatUI Sublime Text theme

The FlatUI theme is designed to work with the latest development builds of Sublime Text, including Sublime Text 2 and Sublime Text 3.

Austin, looks great especially on Win 8 where everything is almost flat now.

Is there a chance you can provide a dark variant I find it easier to look at for longer periods of work.

Cheers,
Sebastian

I would be happy to. I was planning to do other color variant sub-themes using the same form factor. What did you have in mind? The theme already includes a dark color scheme. Do you mean a darker interface namely the light sidebar?

FlatUI is my favorite theme + scheme right now. It's very usable as-is. That doesn't mean there aren't items I'd reconsider, of course:

* The background color for a language embedded in HTML documents isn't noted. For an example, see Twilight.

* Selected text's background might stand out more. This might in some way be a function of how "current line" marking and selection work together.

* Prefer a darked background (like Twilight).

It's a nice tough in FlatUI (and ST3, I guess) is that the theme works ok without depending so much on the scheme -- they don't interfere with each other.

@fburleigh: I brightened up the selection and darkened up the background. I am very happy with the results though subtle. I was a little confused as to what you are referring to on your first point.

* The background color for a language embedded in HTML documents isn't noted. For an example, see Twilight.


Could you explain in a little further detail what you were referring to? Thanks.

I will also push an update relatively soon so if you would like me to make any revisions let me know and I will see what I can do.

I am also considering designing another sub theme using this same form factor, tabs, and icons. Any suggestions?

Sure! I took a screen shot to show you but the forum says it has no room for additional attachments. An easy code example would be:

* In a php file, a web developer likely has runs of HTML code:

Code: Select all
<?php // top of php document

<html>
<head>
    <!-- this is all html -->
</head>
<body>
<h1>...</h1>

<?
    // But now we're writing PHP...
    echo "Now let us have some PHP programming."
?>

<pNow back to html</p>

<p>We might even have some <? echo "php within the HTML " . $myvar ?>

</body>
</html>
// and the end of PHP
?>


I believe Sublime refers to this as an embedded language; color schemes have the option to color language language elements found inside the scope of another language. I don't know the details, of course... Sometimes on the fora lack of support for embedded languages creates a bit of support confusion when programmers wonder why their well-crafted JS or another language doesn't have its own colors. Turns out often enough it's not that ST doesn't see the "inner" language, just that the color scheme doesn't make use of that knowledge.

Some other examples include SQL text within either PHP text or Java; HTML snippets within JavaScript strings meant to be echoed to the browser (that level of support would be wonderful but also beyond the call of duty).

Thanks very much!

We may be on different pages, as they say. ;)

The text of myCoolFunction is syntax highlighted, but its background is (to my eye) the same as the background for the surrounding html text. I think if you switch to the Twilight color scheme you'll see the difference I'm after: a different background -- lighter, probably -- that visually distinguishes embedded blocks from containing scope.

Oh right. Sorry, I don't know where my brain was, late nights I guess. I updated it to look like this: http://cl.ly/QgGO

I will push an update to my theme sometime later today.

There are installation instructions in the readme on github and in the zip. You will need to restart Sublime for the images to properly adjust.
