The best themes for vs code

  1. Night Own: The Night Own theme is perfect for those who like to work at night, with over 900,000 installs it has surely won the heart and IDE of many programmers.
  2. Dracula: With over two million installs and receiving constant updates, dracula has also won the hearts of many developers. Also knowing that it was developed by a Brazilian can encourage you to try it, at least I can guarantee that it encouraged me to use it and that it makes me still go back to it from time to time.
  3. One Dark Pro: A dark theme focused on that, the difference you can find in it and its color range is more differentiated from the other themes above. You'll find stronger colors in One Dark Pro. I recommend experimenting to see if that's what you're after.
  4. Rainglow: Rainglow is a theme that works a lot with contrasts and brings a lot of colors to its development. It has more than 200,000 downloads and it's worth taking a look at the proposal completely different from the other themes it brings.
  5. One Monokai theme (my current theme): Imagine the following story. Two dark themes decided to merge, and from this union comes a theme made to not hurt the eyes and that united one of the most beautiful color palettes of all. This is the One Monokai theme. It emerged from the union between Monokai and One Dark theme. I don't even need to talk about why he's on this list, but you don't have to believe me. test this theme and find out for yourself.
  6. Shades of Purple: Shades of Purple is a theme with more than 900,000 installations, focused on purple colors, as the name suggests, it manages to provide a highlight that is difficult to find in other themes, besides being very bold in its proposal.
  7. Material Theme: With more than 200,000 installations, Material theme is a theme that at the moment I write the article has no review. If you want to join a new community, edit and be part of the creation of a theme or even make a bet on a theme not as famous as others on the list, here is the theme for you
  8. Winter is coming (to GOT fans): This is indeed a theme within a theme. It has several versions, the most famous with more than a million dowloads. It has balanced colors for day and night and does not have italics. If that's what you were looking for, here it is, otherwise it's worth giving it a try anyway. It might surprise you.
  9. Noctis: Noctis has almost half a million downloads, and has a pastel shade. With its mix of light and dark themes plus the warm and cool color blend and its medium contrast the Noctis in my opinion is the perfect medium theme. Bringing together the best of all worlds, it's worth checking out.
