You might remember, about a year ago I’ve posted about my mission to make Eclipse’s dark theme actually usable in Windows… Well, turns out I wasn’t the only one, who decided to put some effort into this. (Quite a shocker, huh?!) Apparently a year later something called the “Darkest Dark” theme for Eclipse has appeared in the Eclipse Marketplace and has been quite a buzz since then. I don’t really have too much to say here – these guys did what I intended, so I think my work on this subject is done. 🙂 Installation is easy and hack-free and for me, this theme worked quite well so far. All you need to do is opening up Eclipse Marketplace and install the theme from there:
Eclipse Darkest Dark Theme: No hacks required!
It’ll require a restart and basically that’s it! Just for comparison’s sake, here’s a screenshot of the default Eclipse theme.
The last screen shows how your ide will look after installed the theme. It’s fantastic imho and you don’t even need to configure anything. From what I’ve seen so far, the theme gets updates quite regularly, so all I can say is kudos to these guys!
... and after installation!
