Dark Theme for Servoy Developer ... how ?

Postby rvmladenov » Thu May 15, 2014 8:43 am

Hi everyone.

I have searched in the forum for this but couldn't find any solution.
So ... is there a way to colorize/change the color theme of my Servoy Developer to look similar to the attachment "dark_theme.png". I need to change the color for editor and all sidebar, footer, header .... sections also.

Thanks in advance !

If you go to eclipse preferences and then search for 'color' you will get a couple of hits.
AFAIK you can't import a theme, but you can change the (syntax)colouring as you like.

The theme shown above is installed as follows:

- 1 - installed new software using "http://eclipse-color-theme.github.com/update"
- 2 - new "Color Theme" subsection is added to the "Preferences->Appearance". Select the desired theme and click "OK"
- 3 - downloaded and unzipped the "https://github.com/downloads/rogerdudler/eclipse-ui-themes/com.github.eclipsecolortheme.themes_1.0.0.201207121019.zip" into the "dropins" folder of the Eclipse
- 4 - Change the "Theme" name to "Dark Juno" in "Preferences->Appearance" and click OK

The problem is that I can't find where to paste the zip file from "- 3 -" so I can change to "Dark Juno" in the "- 4 -"

I am not an expert but if Servoy is based on Eclipse - shouldn't we have the same styling options ?

Hi mate. Attached is a screenshot of my new Servoy Developer IDE UI. I'll tell you how I did it...

1. Help > Install New Software... and use this update site to install Moonrise: https://raw.github.com/guari/eclipse-ui ... updatesite

2. Do the same again with another update site ( http://eclipse.jeeeyul.net/update/ ) and select "Jeeeyul's Themes" under the category "Jeeeyul's Themes"

3. Once you've installed both and restarted Servoy, go to Window > Preferences > General > Appearance and select Moonrise as your theme.
