It's been almost 7 years since I launched Dracula as an open source project.
Today I'm launching Dracula PRO.
🤔 The problem
In 2013, my laptop was stolen, so I had to re-configure everything. At that time, there were thousands of color schemes for programming out there, but none of them were appealing to me. So I decided to create my own.
Fast forward to 2020, Dracula is one of the most popular themes in the world with more than 2 million downloads. Still, I felt that something was missing. I wanted to help with more than just a theme.
🛠 My solution
I decided to create a new color scheme using mathematical concepts to normalize lightness and saturation. I also tested the contrast ratio for better visibility on low-light environments.
Besides that, I hand-picked 4 monospaced programming fonts that fit perfectly with the theme. These fonts have built-in ligature support that improves readability.
Dracula PRO is everything I know about color schemes, typography, and productivity tips into one package.
🧛♂️ What do you think?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this. And if you have any questions, please do comment

I have been using Dracula for quite a long. I recently purchased the pro version of it and I am absolutely loving it. If I have an editor like that, I can code all day long!
