Is there away to change the colors of our code?
JavasLava

So Whenever I type in a function(Print, Input, def) it glows blue, and numbers and I'm pretty sure variable names glow green, is there a way to change these colors to whatever color I want?

I like colors

hi!

at the moment, there aren't any options in the user interface to change syntax highlighting. however, there's an unofficial extension @ArchieMaclean made here that lets you do so. i have tried it - and it works. im not positive it still works (it should), but its worth giving it a shot :)

Hey,
See Eankeen's comment - I've made a color scheme Chrome extension that should allow you to customise the color scheme however you want. If you have any problems with it, let me know on that page :)

Keep up the good work!

@JavasLava Hmm that's strange. If that's still an issue, could you give a screenshot on the announcement page, and say what the issue is? I'll see if I can fix it, but I'd like to keep all bugs and things on that page.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I Just didn't see the "Save" [email protected]
It works perfectly

@JavasLava No problem :)

So you wanted different syntax highlighting?

Um not at the moment, but changing from light theme to dark theme does stuff (there's also a hidden "high contrast" theme in the command palette)
