Aptana Studio 3 Custom Dark Color Theme

Posted on July 01, 2011

A port of my dark color theme to Aptana Studio 3. Aptana is still my IDE of choice on Mac and PC.

This was incredibly difficult to get right because of a bug that exists in the theme color selector of the Mac OSX version of Aptana 3. Essentially, if you pick a color, then close the color picker window, the color changes slightly. It was a real pain, so I hope you enjoy the set!



To install the theme, go to Preferences > Aptana > Themes > Import

    That’s awesome! Great to see that you were able to get your theme done, especially due to that annoying Mac Eclipse color shift bug (due to gamma correction stuff).

    You can actually edit the exported plist file to further tweak the rgba values in case the shift bug continues to bite you.

    BTW, would you mind if we included this theme for all our users? If not, you can post a ticket here for me and ask me to include it: http://jira.appcelerator.org/secure/CreateIssue!default.jspa

      Thanks for letting me know. I think the theme actually ships with Asana now, but I will fix the download links in a few. I will probably start a github page just to keep things simple.

        I had downloaded Aptana yesterday, which is why I was looking for the theme for this computer (new work system).

        I looked at the default themes installed and do not see it with yesterdays download

        • vinnytroia

          The link is working now. You should be able to download the theme.
