I've been using Nord as of late. It's available for VSCode here.

Nord Preview


I used to, but than change to Mariana Nord


I'm using the amazing Shades of Purple theme. I sure recommend it.

Shades of Purple - Javascript


Wow! nice. What's the name of the font and how did you apply it?


Not OP but it looks a little like Dank Mono - unfortunately not a free font, that website is selling it for 40GBP.


Purple is new love β™₯️😊


I love this theme so much I ported it to VS 2017/2019!


Thanks for that themes!

I was looking for new themes right now :)


Glad to help. Also, don't forget to tell your favorite theme. 😊


It is the 'Field Lights Theme'!

Using it right now :)

Work great with that Icon Theme they have mentioned.


Was looking for a nice purple theme after I refreshed my terminal. Cyberpunk is perfect, thanks for the recommendation.

New Theme


CyberPunk is a clear winner here.


I use the Moonlight one, then I saw this one. It's amazing.


I recently put out a theme called Kaia, so it is my favorite (clearly biased). I took what I liked from Monokai and tried to make it more readable. Feel free to check it out and let me know if you like it.


That's so cool man. Will definitely check this out.


I have tried hundreds now and some I stick with for a few days, but I always switch back to Material Ocean High Contrast.

For me it is the best combination of visual appeal and consistency between a Retina screen and my PC.


Tetra Contrast and Tron Contrast from the Dayle Rees Contrast pack

Cold Horizon by vincentfiestada

After Dark by ssmi

Also shoutout to @jschr behind vscodethemes, discovering that today made me happier than words can describe.


Thanks! Glad you find it useful. Let me know if you have any features you'd like to see built at github.com/jschr/vscodethemes/issues :-)


Thanks for the recommendations. I've been using An Old Hope theme for quite some time now. Might give the Slack Theme a shot though.


An Old Hope, a great theme. 😊


I'm just gonna go ahead and plug my Rouge Theme, not sure if I can call it underrated but it is my daily driver :)


Definitely an underrated theme. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ


Dank Neon

We just finished and released Dank Neon! It's completely open source and will be getting a dedicated dev.to post soon!


Cyberpunk is a bit much for my eyes but I really like Outrun and Horizon. They are going into my collection for sure.


Outrun is Getting popular 😬


Might not be "underrated" anymore thanks to your article! :)

That was the intention 😊


Thanks for themes.

Cyberpunk Theme looks amazing. I'm looking for VSCode themes like Cyberpunk.

I like purple or similar colors on IDE's


Thanks for the share !

I would recommend Noctis Lux for light themes lover.


So I made this theme for personal use about a year ago or so.

Couple of weeks ago I decided to put it on the market for other people to enjoy.

It's called Laetus and you can download it here.


Cool thanks.

Trying out Cyberpunk => The Scarlett Protocol
for my daytime theme :)


Your comment just gave me an idea for a new open source project. thanks :)


I have been using Cobalt2 since the first half of the past year and it's a great option.


I want to recommend Ayu, Dracula, and Noctis. I had already installed Horizon and Andromeda themes, both are pretty good ones. I will try some of the recommendations. Thanks for sharing! πŸ™Œ


Thanks for recommendation 😊


Damn! Didn’t knew about it. 😯


Thanks for recomendation , I use ayu dark theme in vscode.


I'm surprised this theme is not mentioned more.


Installed cyberpunk and andromeda on my VSCode :)) thanks for the post!


Andromeda Theme and Moonlight Theme look amazing. I would love to use those in my upcoming time.


Both themes are great. 😊


Cyberpunk Theme seems interesting for mornings, I'll be trying it out.
MacOS made me nose exhale.
What font do you use?


I really like the Gatito theme! Been using it for a while and never looked back.


Dracula is nice for the ability to have consistency across tools.


Really loved the 12. Outrun Theme


Used Andromeda for an year... will try CyberPunk for sure!
