SkGRTT VSCode Theme

Red is a GReaT color

But why?

While VSCode already has a default red editor theme, it’s very bright and hard on the eyes. I wanted to make a version that’s more suitable for everyday use.

The result is SkGRTT, a dark red VSCode theme with fire colored syntax (although people have said that it looks like candy corn). It’s currently available in the Visual Studio Marketplace with close to 200 installs, link here.

I used a Yeoman generator for VSCode extensions to create the main template, then tried different color combinations before finally settling on this specific one.
