# LessVibrantTweak 
## Dark ColorScheme for IntelliJ Platform (IDEA/RubyMine/PyCharms/etc) inspired by TextMate

## About

I've adjusted the [LessVibrantInk][LessVibrantInk] theme for some personal preferences, and specifically adding Scala support.  A few things
to note in Scala support is that I yellow-wavyline under any MUTABLE variables (var) as a warning of "are you sure you want to be mutable?".

A few other tweaks have been made to improve visibility.

## Font Setting

Although I tend to prefer Consolas for coding, for some reason IDEA on Linux no matter what I do renders it as an unreadable mess.

[Envy Code R Programming Font][EnvyCodeR] is a fantastic font though which works great under IDEA on Linux, and it's the default set in this theme.  

However, at this time while [Envy Code R Programming Font][EnvyCodeR] is free, it does not allow redistribution outside of his site.  To that end, if you'd like to try it
please grab it from the vendor's site directly.

## Usage

Drop this in your IntelliJ settings directory (on Linux for IDEA it's ~/.IntelliJIdea9, on mac/ windows it's elsewhere) under config/colors, 
then in settings -> editor -> colors & fonts select "LessVibrantTweaked"
