Have you tried a dark theme? I can't imagine staring for a few hours this theme 😂

Nice to see a good light theme, I find them much easier on the eye.

Dark themes are better for the night times or cloudy weather. Used in a very bright atmosphere (like in an office with neons) they don't make a lot of sense and could hurt your eyes.

I switch between light and dark themes many times a day. There are even extensions to toggle them automatically (not a VSCode thing: the Opera browser does this natively).

I would need sunglasses to code in this IDE, but very beautiful job with the theme, it's certainly eye-catching!

Also I have a theory that there is a shared trait between devs who use light-themed IDEs must also be morning people. @heyamyk8 are you a morning person?

I like to code at night, so I love defined, sharp shadows, layered UIs, and of course, dark theme. 🙃🙃🙃
