Best Visual Studio Code Themes

VS Code probably has the best community, and they have a lots of editor customization options. Here are a few of my favourite VS Code themes.

SynthWave ’84 (this one is the best)

Do you remember that endless summer back in ’84? Cruising down the ocean-highway with the top down, the wind in our hair and heads buzzing with neon dreams? No, I don’t remember it either, but with this experimental theme, we can go there.

I have disabled the glow effect but you can enable it if you want to.

Shades of Purple

I also like shades of purple, Shades of the purple theme is built with several shades of purple and a few contrast colors to make things pop. This also makes SOP a very good theme for teaching, presenting,

Download Shades of Purple

Horizon Theme

it is the beautiful warm dual theme for Visual Studio Code, it comes in dark mode as well, but the light mode looks much better.

Maybe a better title would be "My favorite VS Code themes", because thats a subjective "best"...
