The first (and so far, only) theme for VSCode I’ve created, featuring a dark color theme for VS Code inspired by futuristic holo tech, comprised mainly of a purple and blue palette, with pink accents.

If you’d like to support my work, please share + rate my extension in the VS Marketplace (or Open VSX Registry). You can also shoot me a bit of loot on Ko-Fi for which I’d be very appreciative of. Most of all though, I hope you enjoy using this theme, and write kick-ass code while doing so. Cheers!

P.S. If you enjoy this color theme, check out the nitrous tag for the entire suite. I’m always trying to add more!
