Top TextMate Themes for Web Developers

I recently tried to make some change in my working environment and the first thing to do was to find a new theme for TextMate.

It appears that it is harder to find new theme than you think. The excellent list at tm-themes.com is offline (don’t know why but it was a great TextMate themes site) or download links at official MacroMates theme gallery are unavailable. The pursuit for the new theme started from Twitter, Google and went all the way to official theme gallery.

As I work with a lot of CSS, XHTML, Javascript and PHP files, the new theme needs to fit some of my requirements. It needs to help me with all that languages, particularly to easily see selectors, tags, functions, classes etc.

Coda by Summer Daze

For all the lovers of Panic’ Coda all-in-one editor, this theme is perfect replacement.

Made of Code by Mark Dodwell

This is my favourite and I finally settled down with this theme. It has excellent code colouring and it just fit my working habits.

  • Well done! I was feeling similar frustration with the demise of the 1st page Google results TM Theme websites. Just wish Windows could render Monaco as prettily as Macs do :(

  • You missed this one!

    • Thank you Dave! The theme looks great and I will add it to the article soon.

  • Actually Johnathan, Using a program called MacType you can render your fonts like Mac on a Windows system ;) i’ve used it for quite some time since I went from Mac to Windows and hated the LQ fonts.

    OT: My favorite color scheme would be Twilight or IR_White
