Valley Theme for Visual Studio Code
Valley is a simple theme for Visual Studio Code without visual noise. Created with handpicked and vivid colors, appropriate contrast and a lot of love to help you focus on your code.

Vivid and pleasant syntax color palette for long coding sessions.
To improve orientation, I have colored the surfaces according to their z-axis. The closer a surface is to the user, the brighter it is.
I have tried to be AA compliant and achieve a contrast ratio of 4.5 for all main color combinations.
Features like search or Git have their own color palette and are consistent in their use. For example, all search-related colors are consistently yellow.
🎨 Color Palette

If something does not look the way you want it to, feel free to overwrite it via user settings and give Valley your own personal touch. For more Information see the Visual Studio Code docs for "Customizing a Color Theme".

👪 Valley Adoptions
I have used a lot of great tools that have helped me to create this theme:
Valley Theme by Tim Grochowski is licensed under the "Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International" License.
The syntax color palette was partly inspired by the Google Chrome DevTools Theme (in darkmode). I used language scopes from the Visual Studio Code Dark+ Theme to jumpstart Valley.
Valley is available for free in the Visual Studio Marketplace. If you enjoy using it and want to say thank you then you can buy me a coffee and/or rate it/write a review in the marketplace ✨.
