Cool dark color schemes for Aptana and Dreamweaver

October 27th, 2010 | Cool Stuff , Fun Stuff , IDE

All these themes are for php, html, css and js files so dont be upset when you dont see any change when you work on java, xml, etc.. files :) These schemes are set for web developers. Edit : I realized that, the best solution is installing Aptana 3 as an Eclipse plugin and installing themes over Eclipse. You can simply install Eclipse themes from Eclipse Market Place. Go to Help>Eclipse Marketplace and search for "Eclipse Color Theme". You dont need to install themes for Aptana 3, it already has themes inside.

Aptana 2 Themes

NightLion

Includes color themes for CSS, HTML, Javascript, jSON, PHP, PHP Doc, PHP Smarty, PHP Smarty Config, ScriptDoc and XML.

Autumna

Includes color themes for CSS, HTML, Javascript, PHP, PHP Doc and ScriptDoc.

Dreamweaver

Got the content from Tom Sramek's Blog.

Are you coding in Dreamweaver and don't like the default light code colorization? I created dark background color theme for Dreamweaver. I took inspiration from Green Chaud theme for Aptana IDE.
