Sublime Text PlainTasks Tomorrow Night Theme

 
 
 

Sublime text is my go to text editor, I probably spend 90% of my day coding something in it and because of that I need a theme that will not increase eyestrain. The main theme I use is the popular pheonix tomorrow night dark theme which has some nice gentle font colours on a dark background.

I also like to manage my tasks in the plainTasks package, it's extreme popular and allows for some simple task management and tagging, the only problem is the default theme is bright yellow, which makes makes switching between a dark theme to yellow one a little unpleasant.

I decided to create a new theme just for plainTasks based on the tomorrow night Phoenix theme.

To install just download the theme file and unzip, browse to your sublime text packages folder or within Sublime text click 'Preferences > Browse Packages…’ put the file in your user folder. Don’t add it to the plainTasks folder as it will be overwritten when the package is automatically updated.

Now just change the plainTasks theme in sublime text by clicking ‘Preferences > Package Settings > Settings User' and add the location of the theme to the ‘colour_scheme’ option. If you don’t have anything in that file just add:


{
  "color_scheme": "Packages/User/PT_tomorrowNight.hidden-tmTheme"
}

to the file and you are done.
