Where to find Komodo Edit color schemes?

Posted by toddw on 2007-07-07 07:58

This is a list of user contributed Komodo color schemes. Please post a link to your own schemes as well.

Also, check out KolorModo for a list of nice Komodo color schemes:

The scheme for Komodo that I've been using is one called "charcoal rainbow" and is a dark theme that's in the same vein as the Wombat scheme mentioned. I'm also using the Monaco font on both Linux and Windows.

I did a port:

Tested with Python, HTML, CSS and Javascript.
Hopefully it looks ok in other languages, too.

I finally converted the Chocolate Liquor theme from Vim 7.1/Cream myself:

I find this to be one of the most soothing color combinations for my eyes when I'm coding for long periods of time. I've tested this with Python since I use that language almost exclusively.

I've made a kind of mishmash of Komodo-Dark, Spectacular, and Monokai.





The font used is Inconsolata, which is similar to Consolas and TheSansMono, but available for free:


I just wanted to note for anyone thinking about making a script or writing a tool that Komodo stores it's schemes as BGR Hex converted to base 10; so if you want to do something like convert HTML color (which textmate and vim both use) you have to switch around the hex pairs; ie: '0x123456' becomes '0x563412'. This took a little figuring out and frankly I can't find any documentation at all on this site.

This is the most beautiful color scheme I've ever seen for development. It was intended to be the easiest possible on the eyes for programmers who spend long amounts of time writing code and staring at a monitor.

Another person created it and I ported the scheme over to Komodo. I made sure it looked correct on every major language.


Here is a screen shot for preview:


Your eyes will thank you.

I tried to convert monokai as best as I could so here it is:


I couldn't reproduce it as it's best since Komodo has way less syntax options than Textmate ... but still it's not bad =)

zozzz | Tue, 2008-11-04 10:20

This is my scheme Pastel.ksf

etc | Mon, 2008-11-24 12:57

Some schemes I've edited..
Hope you like them

ps: There are some I grabbed here..and edited.
I've not created no one of them.

Thank you.

I wanted a color scheme similar to Dreamweaver's PHP code coloring. I made this scheme, which is not identical, but pretty familiar coming from Dreamweaver's code view. Here is a preview of what I ended up with:

To use, save the follwing as DW.ksf in (on Windows)

Well, thought I'd share my personal theme as well. Friends seem to like it quite a lot so here goes:

Howdy, I've finally gotten around to finishing up a Django based scheme. I'd found one a while back but it was Python only, and was generally incomplete.

Regardless, most of the color values are taken straight from the Django homepage (I'm assuming they haven't copyrighted them or something ~twitch~). Unfortunately, color isn't in my DNA so any suggestions on how to better organize the colors would be greatly appreciated.


P.S. Does there happen to be a theme repository yet?

nathan | Tue, 2009-06-30 11:47

I like everything except the background color, I go mad just by looking at it.. :p

I converted the Notepad++ default theme for PHP, JS, CSS, XML and HTML to Komodo, so if anyone likes it, feel free to use it :).
