A VSCode syntax and UI theme based on Jummiterm. Jummiterm is a text highlighting scheme for terminals and code which I have developed for my own dotfiles. It is suitable for web development and system administration, designed with the following document types in mind:
Work in progress.
Limited palette of colors in pastel hues
8 basic cterm colors which are in inverted sorting for their bright variations
Use of darkened/lightened shades of basic theme colors to keep the number of unique colors low
Use italics instead of a new color where possible
Just enough contrast; not too much
A reaction to maximalist color themes that brightly mark every token possible with a unique divergent color, making the reading choppy. Non-users of the scheme should be able to immediately understand what the highlighting communicates.
Not every token is a magic word
Use of a typical terminal foreground color for text that doesn't need special emphasis. Powerful tokens built in to the language should get more emphasis than user tokens.
Comments that blend into the background a bit are easy to skim over when you need to focus on the active code content.
Different parts of your stack should be visually distinct
With multiple filetypes being concurrently open in different editor panes and tabs, filetypes should have a distinct visual character to assist your brain in switching between them.
Testing and adjusting token colors in work environments
More thoughtful error and warning highlighting
Light theme for glossy screens in bright environments
