Most Visual Studio Code users, at some point, decide to give their code editor a little personality. Whether it be for contrast issues, hatred of light themes, obsession with pink…you get the picture. 

If you haven’t been down this road yet, well, I’m about to save you an entire day of browsing theme after theme. By the time you’re done with this article, you will be in love with one of these themes.

Alright, alright, I hear you. “But Kyle, what theme do YOU use??” I’ve been using Night Owl for most of this year BUT after seeing all of these golden options I may have to change it up. I’m looking at you Midsummer Night & Zombie Threed (Earth Bound Bundle).


There you have it. 10 killer themes. (Really it’s 24 themes but whatever)
