C/C++ Extension UI Themes
Semantic colorization was added to the C/C++ Extension in version 0.24.0. By default, colorization in VS Code is syntactic/lexical and leverages TextMate grammar to associate named 'scopes' with syntactic elements. Themes and settings can be used to apply the colors associated with those scopes. Our implementation of semantic colorization leverages the same system of associating colors with named scopes. But, some tokens that can be colored by semantic colorization in C/C++ do not have existing analogs in VS Code's TextMate grammar. So, new named scopes are required. Information about these new scopes can be found here. Because these scopes are new, existing themes do not include colors for them either.
We created C/C++ Extension UI Themes to closely match Visual Studio themes, and include colors for many of the new scopes.
