To work on the theme:
- Clone this repo and open in VS Code
- Open run
View → Run
Launch Extension. This will open up another VS Code Editor
- Make changes to
cobalt2.json. You will see changes reflected in the other editor that opened in step 3.
If you are making a Pull Request, Please give me a screenshot of before/after!
Deploying a new version
These are mostly notes for me.
- Increment the version number in
npm version major|minor|patch
npm run bundle
npm publish to publish both to npm and vscode extension store
I don't like something
You don't need to fork it!
First, this theme is new so if something is funky, please open an issue. There are many languages and parts of VS Code I don't use, so let me know!
These are the things we have control over. If you would like to change something, you can either open a PR and see if I'd like it added, or override the colours in your own settings.json file.
Put Cobalt2 in other places!
Thanks to Roberto Achar for doing much of the initial porting to VS Code.
