crystal UI README
The extension 'crystal UI' adds a background pic for your vscode.
This ext only works on Windows
ctrl+shift+p , use the command
open crystal UI
- restart your vscode
- change your theme to
Then,your vscode will look like this:
It's beautiful,isn't it?
You can choose your own pictures as the window background and editor background,for example:
All paths in the setting must use '/' instead of '\\'
If you don't like the editor background,just use a empty arry:
Also,you can put the picture as a foreground.But if you do so,the editor background will be hided:
This ext works by changing vscode's css file(to add a background,and it causes a alarm——just ignore it,I promise that this ext is harmless) and use a independent theme,which adds a opacity to your UI to show the background.
So if you want to turn it off,just choose another theme——this saves you from the trouble to reload vscode.But remember to use the command
close crystal UI to turn it off when you want to uninstall this ext!!
This ext does not function unless you use the command
open crystal UI. It may seems troublesome,but this avoids slowing down the vscode when it opens.
This extension contributes the following settings:
crystalUI.window.foreground: if true,the background will float above the whole window. It may looks cool,but it make you hard to recognize the words in the editor. So I strongly recommand you set it to false.
crystalUI.window.backpic: the absolute path of the background picture,default if set to null.
crystalUI.window.opacity: the opacity of ui in crystal mode,including the titlebar,the sidebar and the activitybar.
crystalUI.editor.backpic: the absolute path of the editor's background,default if set to '',no back pic if set to null.(Max length is 3)
crystalUI.editor.bkgrdOpacity: the opacity of editor's background.Need values between 0 and 1.(Max length is 3)
crystalUI.editor.bkgrdPosition: the position of editor's background,the same format as 'background-position' in css.(Max length is 3)
