Top 5 coolest VsCode Themes you should try.

1) Shades of Purple

Shades of Purple
If you are a fan of purple, you are absolutely gonna love this theme. It was one of the first 'Shades of X' themes. Nowadays, you can find shades of orange, blue, pink, etc very easily in the Cs Code marketplace. Even if you are not a purple fan, this theme is worth giving a try.
Check it out here.

2) SynthWave 84

SynthWave
If you ever dreamt about neon themes in Vs Code, congrats, because your dreams just came true. This is the neon theme for VS Code, for all the Neon lovers. It can be customized as well as the neon glow can be turned on or off.
According to me(and apparently a lot of other devs), this is the coolest VS Code theme ever developed.
Check it out here.

3) Cyberpunk 2077 themes

Cyberpunk
This, as the name indicates, is inspired from the Cyberpunk 2077 game which was launched in 2020 last year. It looks super cool and will make you code even more and inspire you every day. It is worth a try.
Check it out here.

4) Material Themes

Material
This is just a must have, and if you only want to install one theme from all the 5 i am telling about, this would be it. This theme is a collection of several themes flavoured to different styles like material oceanic, material palenight, etc. It merges well with the code and the syntax highlighting looks good.
Check it out here.

5) Bearded Themes

Bearded
Don't get fooled by its fancy name, this theme is a collection of 20 themes for different people and for different needs. It support syntax highlighting well and works well and is quite a fast one.
Check it out here.

Conclusion

There are 1000s of other themes available out there. But i thought these to be the most interesting ones and significantly different ones. So go ahead try out few themes and then go with the ones you love.
That's a wrap

Comment your favorite VS Code themes below and let me as well as others know.

ThankYou.

Don't use themes with a bluish base color if you care about your eyes/sleep.

I can't get the synthwave glow working on my m1 iMac unfortunately but it's a nice theme anyways!

You have to enable it in the settings. Check out their docs for the same. It should help.

You have to install it separately(font is FiraCode with Pacifico for italics). You can create custom fonts using FontForge.
