I really hate colorful themes like One Dark Pro, but this theme is exactly what I've been looking for, it looks really good on my Angular enviroment, thank you for it.

Look tags are not really readable, is it normal?

I'm glad to read this Juan, and thank you so much for using Aura Theme. 💜

About the tags, I'll check it and try to make it better but I have to think about it, because change the color of selection will impact all the ports, but any changes you'll receive automatically by vscode extension update. Thanks for the feedback.

I mostly code JSX (React), I'm not a fan of the color of the variables within JSX being same as the color of the text within the html tags, they are both white

This is a tradeoff, vscode doesn't give me a good textmate scope to reach only the text in that case. If I change the color of the text, this change other things and the mess is done haha

This theme looks good...
I loved the Dark and Soft Dark flavours, but it should be awesome if there was a flat styled theme, I love the editor de the sidebar to have that minimal look and feel thing... But i really loved it. I'll stay with for now. Great work.

Damn this looks so good. Already changed my alacritty theme, it would be great if you could make it for vim as well. I tried plugging the repo via "Vim Plug" but it wouldn't recognise the colorscheme when setting it in the config file.

All right so after testing it I really enjoyed it!
There's just one thing which prevents me from permanently using it, but that's an issue with my eyes, is that when using it for too long my eyes are getting tired faster.
But I will keep it installed and use it from time to time and eventually this will disappear.
Great job!

Really nice theme, I already switch it in vscode.
It could be nice to have a port for JetBrains tools (phpstorm, ...)

Love the theme, great job! Any thoughts about adding italic fonts for arguments passed in a method? Also, keywords like 'this' could look more colorful to separate it from the next property.
