One of the things I go back and forth on is whether to go with an overall dark development scheme or an overall light one. Recently I switched from dark to light. This involved a few changes:
- Unchecking the “Use dark menu bar and Dock” checkbox in System Preferences -> General.
- Switching from a dark to a light color scheme in my primary IDE, VSCode (I’m now using the “Visual Studio Light” theme).
- Changing my Chrome theme from “Dark” to “Light” in developer preferences.
- Changing my iTerm theme from a dark one to a light one — specifically to Ayu Light.
Ayu Light is an incredible theme. I’m enjoying it so much that I’ve
copied stolen some colors from it and made it a Drinking Caffeine theme option in Settings. It’s the default theme on the site for now. It’s friendlier and more pleasant than its predecessor. It’s a statement of how I want 2018 to feel compared to 2017 in general.
