While I am doing presentations, I often do demos, and since a lot of my demos are PowerShell based, I use a lot of Visual Studio Code. With that I often get the question which is the Visual Studio Code Theme I use. Even I change my Visual Studio Code Themes pretty often, I have a couple of favorites I want to share.
Azure Contrast (rainglow)
Rainglow has a huge amount for different themes, my favorite one is their Azure, Azure Contrast theme.
My current favorite Visual Studio Code Theme is Cobalt2. Cobalt2 is a dark but colorful theme for Visual Studio. I like it because it is a dark theme, but it not uses the classic dark grey background, instead I like the mix of dark blue and yellow.
Atom One Dark
Atom One Dark is another Dark theme I started to like very much. I like the popping colors on the dark background.
Ayu Mirage – Visual Studio Code Theme
The Ayu Themes for Visual Studio are simple, bright and elegant themes. I prefer the Ayu Mirage theme which as I said looks very elegant. The Ayu themes also have other options like the Ayu light which is also one of my favorites.
Dracula is one of the famous Visual Studio Code themes, which is also available on other platforms. When I am not using the Cobalt2 theme, I most often switch to Dracula.
I mentioned the Ayu Themes before, and this is the light version of it. I am mostly using dark themes, but when I switch to a light theme, I mostly use Ayu Light.
If you are coming form PowerShell scripting, you are already familiar with the PowerShell ISE. The PowerShell ISE theme bring you back in to the old school world and even gives you the PowerShell blue background terminal.
There are a lot of other great Visual Studio Code Themes out there. What is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!Tags: Azure, code, Microsoft, PowerShell, Rainglow, Theme, Themes, Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code Theme, Visual Studio Code Themes, VS, VS Code Last modified: January 8, 2019
okay that one is pretty cool too :)
For presentations and videos, I just switched to Zeal. It works well for color blind viewers and shows well on a projected screen.
