A couple of years ago, I created three color themes for use with John Gruber’s BBEdit plugin, BBColors. With the release of BBEdit 10 last week, they rolled his theming functionality into BBEdit itself. If you were previously using BBColors, your themes are automatically recognized by BBEdit.

BBEdit 10 now provides a native interface to create, switch, and save your own color schemes. That sure doesn’t suck. I packaged all the older themes, U23D, Gentle Honey and Zen and Tea, along with four brand new schemes, inspired by the colors used in Version 3 to the latest, Version 6 of the 2A site (2Advanced.com).

Download the color schemes (.zip)

To install, unpack the .zip and place the contents in BBEdit’s color scheme directory; ‘users > username > Library > Application Support > BBEdit > Color Schemes’. (your ‘Library’ directory is most likely hidden by default)

Update: I’ve also been collecting several BBEdit Color Schemes and keeping them in this BBEdit-Color-Schemes-Pack github repository. Feel free to fork, add your own, and send a pull request.
