Tips

Best Custom Settings

This theme works best with the following settings. Especially if you have the Operator mono font. Add it to your user settings JSON object.

You can also use a custom VSCode Shades-of-Purple icon that I created based on the work of VSCode Icons.

// Theme Setup.
"workbench.colorTheme": "Shades of Purple",
"workbench.iconTheme": "vscode-icons",
"editor.fontFamily": "Operator Mono, Menlo, Monaco, 'Courier New', monospace",
"terminal.integrated.fontFamily": "'Operator Mono', 'Inconsolata for Powerline', monospace",
"editor.fontSize": 17,
"editor.lineHeight": 24.65,
"editor.letterSpacing": 0.5,
"editor.fontWeight": "400",
"editor.fontLigatures": true,
"editor.cursorStyle": "line",
"editor.cursorWidth": 5,
"editor.cursorBlinking": "solid",
"editor.renderWhitespace": "all",
"editor.snippetSuggestions": "top",
"workbench.startupEditor": "newUntitledFile",
"editor.glyphMargin": true,
"workbench.editor.enablePreview": false,
"explorer.confirmDragAndDrop": false,
"files.trimTrailingWhitespace": true,
"files.trimFinalNewlines": true,
// Formatting Optional.
"editor.formatOnSave": true,
"prettier.eslintIntegration": true,
"eslint.run": "onType",
"eslint.autoFixOnSave": true,
// MacOS Only Settings.
"workbench.fontAliasing": "auto",
"terminal.integrated.macOptionIsMeta": true,
"workbench.statusBar.feedback.visible": false,
// The default syntax (TextMate) highlighter classifies many tokens as variables and these are now (since VSCode 1.43) resolved into namespaces, classes, parameters, and so on. This is called Semantic highlighting support for TypeScript and JavaScript. But many themes and language extensions seem broken with single-colored syntax. This came as a surprise to me. It's set `true` by default. I recommend disabling this for now.
"editor.semanticHighlighting.enabled": false,
// SOP's highlight matching tag setting.
"highlight-matching-tag.styles": {
    "opening": {
        "full": {
            "highlight": "rgba(165, 153, 233, 0.3)"
        }
    }
},
// SOP's Import Cost Extension Settings.
"importCost.largePackageColor": "#EC3A37F5",
"importCost.mediumPackageColor": "#B362FF",
"importCost.smallPackageColor": "#B362FF"
