Saturday, January 31, 2009 (BBColors Color Schemes)
Update: These BBEdit Color Schemes and several new ones are now rolled up in a BBEdit 10 friendly package and available for download.
Update: BBEdit 10 has rolled BBColors into their own theme structure. Any installed BBColor themes will be auto-recognized by BBEdit 10.
U23D, Gentle Honey, Zen and Tea, available as bbcolors color schemes (.zip)
Awhile back Daring Fireball created BBColors, a “free command-line tool for saving and loading text color preference schemes for BBEdit and TextWrangler”. I’ve been using it ever since, switching between the available color shemes. A color refresh for your code rejuvinates the soul.
Occasionally I’ll search the web for new color schemes available for download but have yet to find any, so I created a couple based on color sets from kuler.adobe.com, they’re available for download in bbcolors-color-schemes.zip. I hope other BBColor fans will find them a nice addition to their collection.
The .zip file contains 3 color themes based on the following Adobe Kuler color sets:
Daring Fireball has instructions on installing and using BBColors. But here’s the jist on getting these new color schemes up and running:
type "bbcolors -open" in your command line, revealing the location of saved color schemes
Drag and drop your new color schemes into the aforementioned directory
type bbcolors -load "Name of Theme"
