Add a dark theme for studio


#1

Having a dark theme for studio would be great for the many developers that prefer to not be blinded constantly

Some examples of IDEs that have dark themes:

OLD

Could we have the line numbers use the background + text color, as well as the white gap that has the arrows for function blocks?


Studio dark mode
Dark Mode (Please)
Dark Mode (Please)
#2

In addition to this, it would be nice to have an option for darkening the entirety of the Studio interface (not including the world view).


#3

Why not darken your monitor or computer screen? Also if you darken studio, you'll be building on a darker scheme than the actual in-game. It possibly may make it too bright for other people when they join because it's darker on your screen.


#4

Darker scheme wouldn't affect the actual rendering of the game, just the studios UI


#5

I assumed "the entirety of studio" included, well, everything you physically saw. But just darkening the UI sounds useful :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

Current status:

Seriously, Roblox developers are a subset of Flux users. Could you make a separate feature request for this?


#7

I'll edit this one seeing as it serves the same purpose


#8

hey how did you know that?


#9

literally when


#10

Might as well just give us full color options like we have for the script editor. Could make such a dope red and black theme


#11

Whoa what, how are you doing that?


#12

Open up the RobloxStudioRibbon.xml file, then set themeoptions to true. You'll get to choose from like 10 themes, including a neat windows 7 one.

Also, gonna mention how none of those IDEs anti-feature a Ribbon UI.


New constraints are live!
#13

Why is this not enabled by defautl!?

Also, how do I get an entirely dark one?


#14

How do you choose the theme once you've changed the parameter?
I can't find it anywhere in the settings.


#15


#16

Two problems:

  1. That enables some ugly MS Office themes; i.e. nothing very dark.
  2. We're requesting a setting. This definitely isn't something that people should have to change XML for.

My best guess is that Dummiez switched out the QtitanRibbon DLL.


#17

Yeah my post wasn't meant to be a surrogate solution, just an answer to clonetrooper's question.


#18

For me it is saying "Access Denied".

What am I doing wrong?

Nevermind, I changed it, but no "Theme Options" button is appearing.


#19

Yeah I know about the theme options.
what I'm curious to know, is how you got that particular theme? is it built in?


#20

Most importantly, we need it to be a dark screen with lime green text so everyone knows that we are hacking into the mainframe.
