I’ve been using the ported Vibrant Ink theme for IntelliJ IDEA for a while but got envious looking at the Dark Pastels theme for NetBeans. I took a few minutes to adjust the Vibrant Ink theme to match the color scheme in Dark Pastels. You can see the results here:

Unfortunately there’s no way to adjust the background color of the entire IDE so this is only applicable to the editor window. In case you’re wondering, the font is Anonymous.

  1. Download the ported theme.
  2. Select File -> Import Settings within IntelliJ IDEA

This was created using IntelliJ IDEA 8.1. I don’t know if it will work for previous versions.
