Eclipse Color Theme 0.12

We’ve just released version 0.12 of the Eclipse Color Theme plugin. It’s been a year since the last release, so there are a couple of changes. Most notably, the following new editors are now supported:

  • Erlang (ErlIDE)
  • haXe (eclihx)
  • Clojure (Counterclockwise)
  • Go (GoClipse)

Check out the full change log to see what else changed.

Roger and I haven’t done much work on the plugin or the site in the past year, but we’re both eager to move it forward and are working on some interesting ideas right now, stay tuned.

On a related note, since people ask for this a lot: If you’re using Eclipse Juno and have been desperate to get a nice dark UI theme to go along with our dark editor themes, check out Roger’s Dark Juno.

  1. Hello

    I prefer xml instead of epf.

    Is there any list (somewhere) that describes what elements can be used in a colortheme.xml ?
    Because I don’t want to set these colors in Eclipse manually:
    General/Appearence/Color and fonts/Text compare/Outgoing change color
    General/Editors/Text Editors/Annotations/Debug Current Instruction Pointer – Errors
    General/Editors/Text Editors/Line number foreground

    This settings help for better view for dark themes (like vim_default).

    Thanks in advance reply.

  2. Hello

    I tried building theme, but I can set only the Line number’s color.

    There is no element for:
    General/Appearence/Color and fonts/Text compare/Outgoing change color
    General/Editors/Text Editors/Annotations/Debug Current Instruction Pointer – Errors

    Why so important this for me?
    Because Compare and Merge tool (cant see clearly the differences)
    & Debug (cant see the current debug line) not very usable without this settings.

    Maybe these options could be included in the next version.

  3. Thanks for your help.

    There are many colors (on those eclipse options) which can not be found in the xml.
    I only have these options are missing. It would be nice to have other adjustable.

    Finally, I found a little bug in theme preview.
    I create this:
    http://eclipsecolorthemes.org/?view=theme&id=9513

    And the bracket’s color should be light blue not yellow (like keyword)
