This is a modification of Atom's dark syntax theme, primarily focusing on reducing the amount of colors used and making use of more font styles and weights. It currently is designed with only Python in mind, however. I'd love some help with other languages, but until then this theme will mostly be focusing on Python and perhaps adding considerations for Bash and HTML/CSS/JS.
You will want to use a font supporting multiple weights and true italics. I recommend Pragmata Pro, but any font meeting those requirements will work.
To modify the main colors (purple and red), just change
@syntax-color-function in the
syntax-variables.less file. There are also lines in there with alternate colors that you should uncomment if you're protanomalic or tritanomalic.
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
