Pastel Evening Theme
Dark theme with pastel colors and a slight blue hint to the editor.
I have been using this basic color scheme for a while now but the amount of rules in settings.json started to grew out of hand.
I thought that I should just polish it up and actually make it a proper theme.
So a week and a bit later here it is.
This theme aims to use relatively few different colors but still clearly distinguish different elements in the code.
The comments are purposefully muted to emphasize the actual code.
Short summary about colors and their meaning is below.
||Interfaces and annotations
| Light Orange
||Strings and numbers
||Labels, lifetimes, escape sequences in strings
| Dark gray
| Light gray
||Main text, local variables, namespaces, modules, operators, punctuation
||Constant and static variables, function parameters, member fields and properties
Additionally static variables and methods are in italic (where possible).
Mutable variables are underlined in languages where mutable variables are special, like Rust and Kotlin.
See ColorScheme.md for more details about the color scheme.
It is recommended to use this theme with semantic highlighting.
It will work without it as well, but may miss some colors.
Style related editor settings used to develop this theme are
"editor.fontFamily": "'JetBrains Mono'",
It's worth noting that Linux's and Windows' font rendering is different, I have found that on Linux
fontWeight=600 is about the same look as
fontWeight=425 on Windows using
JetBrains Mono font.
fontWeight the theme looks quite a bit brighter on Windows than on Linux.
Thus if the colors seem a bit too bright you can slightly lower the fontWeight and other way around too.
The theme has been tested with various languages, mainly against the examples from Code Syntax Examples repo but with some other projects as well.
- Markup and text
- LaTeX, Markdown, AsciiDoc
- HCL, INI, JSON, RON, TOML, XML, YAML, Pest, Cabal,

This theme's code style is inspired by Panda Syntax's and Gatito Theme's pastel colors.
Editor's UI style is inspired by Lapce editor's default dark theme.
