What is this ?

A bunch of color schemes for the PyCharm python IDE. These schemes were not created by me, I merely ported them, because I wasn't happy with what I found online.

Here is the current list.

The XML files should be copied to the following directory:

  • MacOS X: ~/Library/Preferences/PyCharm10/colors/
  • GNU/Linux: ~/.PyCharm10/config/color
  • Windows Vista and 7: C:\Users\$USER\.PyCharm10\config\colors
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\$USER\.PyCharm10\config\colors

You might need to change the font. I recommend Menlo on OSX, Consolas on Windows and whatever default monospace font you can find on your linux box.

I would stay away from Courier New.
