CSSEdit Color Theme for Xcode & IntelliJ IDEA

I love everything in CSSEdit, from its features to the beautiful user interface. But there’s one thing I like so much that I want to have it everywhere: It’s the syntax coloring theme.

I spent most of my time crafting code, either in Xcode, IntelliJ IDEA or TextMate, and, oh boy, I like to do it classy. Hence, to date, I’ve ported CSSEdit’s color theme to XCode and IntelliJ IDEA, and now I’m sharing the love here with you.

Below is how it looks on Xcode (go to Flickr to see the full size version).

So without further ado, download the color themes with the links below.

As a note, IntelliJ IDEA version supports Java, Java Properties, PHP, XML, HTML, XPath, CSS, JavaScript, Groovy, JSP, SQL and Diff. Both themes use Monaco 11pt. You can obviously use the typeface of your choice. If you don’t have the Monaco typeface you can download it here. Additionally, you can get a good compilation of programming fonts here.

I also started a repository in GitHub hoping more themes and editors will join. Explore it here, grab it, play with it and be at will to contact me if you want to contribute with more themes and editors.

  1. I’ve been using these themes in XCode and Intellij for about a month now and I’m loving them! Thank you! Do you have a textmate theme?


  2. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Fixes all the styles.

    I still don’t understand how people can have bold code in their editors. It looks ugly

  3. Good job! I would like to have a full version for IntelliJ IDEA 11! 🙂 Interested in the following moments: SQL/HQL (Hibernate) and JSF/JSP/Tapestry, XML/XPach/XSLT etc…

  4. Auch mit einem wenige Wochen alten Säugling können Sie problemlos verreisen, wenn Sie und Ihr Kind sich fit fühlen.
