HELP...nightly build configuration settings
« on: October 18, 2017, 02:47:44 am »
i am actually trying to have dark theme IDE similar to somehow sublime look and feel. the thing is, i really dont know how to set it up. i thought nightly build version has provide it with all sets up. so my question is
1. where can i find the guide tutorial on setting up sublime look and feel IDE?
2. is there any nightly editor settings configuration that i can use for my codeblocks IDE? i am too lazy to figure it out myself...please apologize.
3. does codeblocks v 16.01 is the final release, is it under development or codeblocks is not planning for any release anymore??if it does, will codeblocks release any newer version in this near future??

The are "nightly" releases about every other month.

The is a major release about every 2 to 3 years.

Lol 8). A nightly has nothing to do with the visual appearance of the program, nightlies are binaries that are build automatically and regular from the current source code, usually during the night to grab a more stable snapshot because people usually dont work then :).

I cannot fully remember the steps, but at least under linux, if you set a dark system scheme CodeBlocks should grab the system colors automatically. Probably the editor wouldnt pick them up, not sure if there is a dark scheme setting somewhere in the color or editor settings. I remember i had to adjust some colors because they didnt work great, maybe i also switched the main background and text color :).

Yes it will, but it still won't include a dark theme.
To make one go to settings -> editor -> syntax highlight and make one.

why not? There are plenty on the wiki page and they are quite hard to import for the user. Why not ship them witch codeblocks?

Because the license for these is not clear. The wiki page has been delete once because the first contributor didn't like something (don't remember what now).
And more importantly they are not full. Someone has to go through all languages and make the theme work for them.
I see no one doing the work, so the themes are not included.

I have a plan to add support for importing notepad++, geany, codelite, eclipse and so on themes to cb_share_config, but this is very low priority at the moment.
If someone is willing to do the work, I'll be happy to review it...
