Sublime Text - MultiLang Color Schemes

MultiLang Color Schemes: Schemes Designed For Humans To Read
Bitdeli Badge

MultiLang Color Schemes is a project dedicated to providing color schemes that make it easy to quickly identify individual languages, especially when they are mixed in with each other. The goal being that you shouldn't even have to actually read the code to be able to identify each language.

Quick Example:

Keep the following in mind:

  • if/else/while is bright green
  • PHP tags are red
  • PHP functions are blue
  • Strings/Plain Text are white
  • HTML is all light browns & dull green

Now try and find those elements in the pic below: (click to view larger image)


The mind can understand and search for colors far quicker than it can search through text, and when you associate those colors with meaning they become a powerful tool. The end result here, is that you become much more efficient at identifying code.


You can find it under MultiLang Color Scheme in Package Control OR clone the repo into your packages directory.

The Project

You can find the project on github:

At the moment there are only 4 color schemes (Dark, Dark Inverted, Deep Purple, Dull Blue). However there is plenty of room for growth as the community is invited to submit their own versions of the scheme, and there are plans to release more variations of the current scheme (see the readme).

Yes, this is a shameless self promotion... but would you have still read this far if I had stated it earlier in the post? Let me know in the comments!
