Is there away to change the colors of our code?
JavasLava (7)

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 :)

@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.

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)
