For Picard script junkies using Notepad++ :
I have created a UDL (user defined language) theme for Notepad++
It’s a dark theme:
The download now contains a light version too:
- Download the xml file:
Navigate to your NPP installation folder and locate the folder: userDefineLangs
Copy the xml file there.
Now in the menubar under , the new UDL should be available.
That should be it.
Notepad++ has an import feature for UDL’s by means of an [Import…] button in the UDL panel.
Do not use that to import this UDL file!
NPP currently seems to have a bug that breaks font specifications from UDL files when importing them in this manner.
(currently at v7.8.3)
This dark version looks best with your background in Notepad++ set to rgb 30,30,30
I designed it for use with these fonts specifically:
Source Code Pro Medium
Source Code Pro Semibold
The first one is—if I am not mistaken—by default installed with Window 10.
The other two are included in the download link.
You are obviously completely free to edit the themes’ colours and fonts to your own liking.
(And then perhaps post and share the results in this thread?)
Feedback and/or suggestions for improvement are welcome.
(I’m not a coder, so there may well be room for improvement)
To put some icing on the cake I created a couple of file icons making it possible to differentiate between file types:
- 48x48 desktop icons are now non-transparent. (better for desktops with an image as background)
- Icons for .ini and .config are added.
