Blue Hour - Syntax Theme
Blue Hour is a syntax highlight theme for Visual Studio Code. It tries to highlight in mostly analogous, but still distinguishable colors from the blue-green region with a bit of orange for contrast. It was made for people who don't like overly colorful highlights and instead prefer a more uniform and muted color scheme.
