Nice theme, Thanks

David Spector said...

*sigh* doesn't seem to install properly on NetBeans 6.1 on OS X...

David Spector said...

ah.. on OS X, Leopard INSISTS on forcing the .nbm file to be a .jar file -- renaming by clicking in the Finder won't help, you have to get info on the file and take off the .jar extension (and click "use .nbm" when the dialog pops up).

After all that, then the plugin will install without error.

thanks for posting this... I was going to say I created it on a MacBook but with 10.4. is this a known issue or something?

Gerald said...

Thanks for the nice work!
Works perfectly with ubuntu hardy.

Steven Ringo said...

Thanks for the great theme - I notice from your screenshots that your font rendering on OS X looks like "native" rendering. My fonts look a bit different. Are you using a standard install of NetBeans 6.1?

Mike McKinney said...

Steven: yep, standard install, no tweakage.

Thanks for the theme. I had been tweaking the Norway Today theme but couldn't get it quite right. :-)

Hi, love this theme!
For those of us who aren't lucky enough to live in a Mac: I think that the font on the Mac is a newer variant of Apple's Monaco? You can get a TTF Monaco font for Windows/*nix from http://www.gringod.com/wp-upload/MONACO.TTF (see also http://www.gringod.com/2006/02/24/return-of-monacottf/)

An alternative to Monaco is Vera from Bitstream (free courtesy of the GNOME foundation) which can be downloaded from http://www.gnome.org/fonts/

either font is *much* more readable than Courier New...

Links seems to be broken?

rhubarb said...

the link is dead - where can I get this theme plesae?

Also on the subject of fonts on the Mac, I'm using monaco for Eclipse, but with a system setting to (using the defaults command) to force it to turn off font smoothing. I can't see any way to do this for NetBeans. Makes a huge difference.

Great. Very good!

Suan said...

Just letting you should change the C/C++ "mark occurences" colors (the current highlighted text is horribly uncontrasted). Other than that, great theme!

Mike McKinney said...

@Suan : there are definitely a few issues with the theme in some of the languages... when I get time, I'll review it for the 6.5 version and see if I can get the update to Tor/Sun to put in the Ruby-extras plugin as well.

Jason said...

Hi Mike...I've been using this theme for Ruby since Netbeans 6.1 was still in development, and I love it. Still works great with Netbeans 6.5 (Beta so far). I figured for yourself, and some others out there, you might like some of the color changes I've made over that time, including things like diff and breakpoint. Here you go, and if you want to use any in the "official" release for 6.5, please do.

Hi! Aloha theme is absolutely awesome - I love it!

Will there be a 6.5 version? I migrated to 6.5 and had to setup few colors but its still not as with aloha on 6.1.

If there is even beta version I'd be happy to try/test it.

Zilo said...

Great!. Really nice colours. Easy to the eyes.

Mike McKinney said...

I've been extremely busy with work lately and have not had time to investigate the theme on NB 6.5... Tor @ Sun has folded the theme into the NB ruby extras package so maybe report issues there?

Also, to my knowledge there is no real easy standard way to build a theme package for NB (future releases?) I usually create a theme, then run a few scripts to package it all up... would like to fold that functionality into NB but the time has eluded me.

Anton Djurasaj said...

Hi Mike,

First of all, thanks for this great theme for us who prefer NetBeans to TextMate but still like the TM theme.
I noticed that Monaco is rendered differently in NB 6.5 compared to how it was rendered in NB <=6.1. I know that is an NB specific question, but I only wanted to know if anybody noticed the same difference. I tried it on two computers so far, and on both machines Monaco is rendered somewhat fuzzy (it used to be quite smooth).

Thanks!

Mike McKinney said...

I had not noticed the change but have been using other IDE's of late... maybe hunt around to see if anyone filed an NB bug for this... if not, take screenshots and send em in for investigation. Glad you like the theme.

Carlos said...

Nice theme! Although I wish JSP's have adequate coloring as well.

Anton said...

Here's the screenshot:

Take a look at 'w'. It looks a bit fuzzy.

Sorry it took me forever to respond.
