PICO-8 VSCode Theme
Welcome to the PICO-8 Theme for Visual Studio Code! This theme is inspired by the aesthetics of the PICO-8 fantasy console's text editor, aiming to bring the nostalgic and retro feel into your modern coding environment.
Here's a glimpse of how your code will look like with the PICO-8 Theme:
Open the Extensions sidebar panel in VS Code.
View → Extensions
Once installed, you'll be prompted to select Pico-8-theme as your color theme. Confirm the selection.
If you aren't prompted to select a color theme upon installation:
Code (File, on Windows) > Preferences > Color Theme > Pico-8 theme. Alternatively, you can use the shortcut
⌘/Ctrl + K > ⌘/Ctrl + T and select
Typography and cursor
I am using the pico-8 font from https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/2052852/pico-8-27 , and I have my own personal settings for the cursor. To change the font and the cursor settings:
Download the font and install the font to your computer
- (MAC USERS): after unzipping the file -> click the .tff file and click Download
Open Vscode and then go to the command palette (Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + P) and type
"Preferences: Open User Settings (JSON)", Edit your user settings to include
"editorCursor.foreground": "#FF004D" ,// Pink color for the cursor,
