A quick way to make a beautiful presentation based on a popular syntax color scheme

I recently had to make a presentation for giving a talk at a conference.
But the Keynotes' default themes are not so great. Especially, I don't like the color schemes.
So I decided to make a theme for myself from scratch and here is the result:

Self introduction

I'm totally happy with it.

The color palette is borrowed from Horizon Theme made for Visual Studio Code:

You can pick up colors from their color palette:

And then, paste them into Keynote's palette so that you can quickly use them like so:

Very easy. You can copy and paste colors from your favorite syntax theme.

Never thought about doing this, will try picking some interesting coding theme for my next presentation and applying this. Perhaps with Monokai Night! :D
