About this project

In this tutorial, I will show you how to install the dark theme for your Arduino IDE

for the reason of overexposure to the screen light of your computer dark themes decreases the danger of eye damage.

Why should the background be dark?

Looking at the white screen for a long time is not good for our eyes. Our eyes become tired, and this causes the distraction.

With this change, you will have more efficient code visualization and you will be able to write long time code without tiring your eyes.

Note: If you are comfortable with the visual instruction you can view the video tutorial here.

Step 1: Downloading the Dark Theme

First, we need to download the dark theme in the link below.

https://github.com/jeffThompson/DarkArduinoTheme

Extract and open the zip file to your computer.

Step 2: Open File Location

Go the directory where you installed or save the Arduino IDE.

In my case I installed it to the drive C of my computer.

The Default directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\lib"

Step 3: Backup Original Theme

Back up your old theme folder inorder to restore the original theme.

Step 4: Replace the Original Theme With the Dark Theme

Replace the downloaded theme on the directory.
