A VSCode syntax and UI theme based on Jummiterm by James Cherven. Suitable for web development and system administration, designed with the following document types in mind:
Work in progress.
Limited palette of colors I like
8 basic cterm colors which are in inverted order 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 prevailing maximalist color themes that brightly mark every token possible with a unique divergent color, making the reading choppy and confusing.
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 syntax but are still very legible when paid attention to.
Different parts of your stack should be visually distinct
Web development deals with so many radically different abstractions being edited at the same time. It's easier for me to mentally organize and focus/unfocus my attention between multiple panes and tabs when, for instance, Nodejs controllers have a distinct color character from MongoDB models.
Testing and adjusting alpha token colors in work environments
More thoughtful error and warning highlighting
Light theme for glossy screens in bright environments
