RedEye

RedEye is a cohesive Sublime Text color scheme prioritizing readability. Inspired by flight instruments and jetliner cockpits, the color palette and contrast balance was chosen to minimize eye strain and remain clear in all lighting conditions.

Color Scheme Preview

Design Goals

  • A Single Scheme for Day and Night

    Color choices and contrast between background and foreground were tuned over multiple days and nights (and across multiple monitors) in an attempt at becoming more than just a “dark theme”.

  • Logical Color Groupings

    Why can't reading code be similar to reading a nicely formatted text document? Like headers and paragraphs, we have classes and method definitions, and while we can't make use of type face and scale, we can make better use of a scheme's only tool: color. In RedEye colors are used to accentuate the code's natural hierarchy.

    Note how easy it is to identify classes and methods in the file and the minimap

    Code Hierarchy

  • Subtle Variations

    For major code blocks, RedEye avoids vomiting the rainbow into your eyes, yet it doesn't resort to unhelpful monochromatic text either. Subtle variations in the base color provide just enough contrast to distinguish between in line operations.

  • Faded Comments with XML Comments Support

    Comments are faint to avoid pulling focus from the code. As large comment blocks usually precede method and class definitions, their style furthers the goal of visually separating major code structures.

Language Support

  • C# - Originally created for C# (see above screenshots)
  • Rust - Some rust specific tuning

  • JSON - Adjusted to keep dominant colors consistent across languages (instead of defaulting to the string color)

  • XML - Basic Support
