Far Manager inspired theme for VS Code

Post by aalimian »

Hi guys, I have been using Far Manager for quite a while and love its classic colors and its default theme, including its built-in text editor. I was wondering if someone has made a VS Code theme inspired by Far Manager colors and where it can be found. I looked in VS Code Extensions Marketplace but couldn't find it, so I am guessing it doesn't exist? If that is the case, where do I find the color codes that Far Manager uses so that I can use those color codes and create a VS Code theme with them?

I did the opposite; I created a true color Far scheme that mimics Visual Studio / Code dark theme. But did not find time to share it with the community.

If you mean colors used when editing source code in particular programming language, these are defined by the Colorer plugin (discussed elsewhere in the forum). You'll need to see which language scheme (.hrc) and which color scheme (.hrd) it uses for the particular language and then see (in Console properties) to which actual colors these map. All of this is quite complex, so I'd recommend just making screenshots and copying colors using any graphic editor's color picker tool.

HaRT,
In my understanding, all far classic color codes can be seen here perfectly well,
As for example, 0000FF is for foreground and 000080 for background
(FAR itself also uses internal codes from 1 to 16 for this limited "classic" set)
