I’ve been noticing quite a few developers start to change the default coloring scheme of Visual Studio to “something darker”. It’s supposed to be more relaxing for your eyes and hey… we all want to be relaxed while coding, right? I mean, we don’t want it to start to look like working.
Well, today I found myself a few minutes to browse for a nice coloring scheme to use myself. Tried to find a few a bit Blend-ish, but found most somewhat too colorful. Too much contrast doesn’t feel all that right to me.
Eventually I decided to stick with this one for a while, not in the last place because it has some settings to make Resharper fit in nicely. Besides that, the colors seem bright at first, but are well chosen. I did change some font sizes from rather large to rather small (like for the Output Window), downloadable below.
I should try and see how many hours I can work without taking a break with these colors .
Anyway: here’s screenshot:
