Handcrafted: a beautiful dark theme for Nova and VS Code

I am proud to announce the release of Handcrafted! A theme for Panic's new code editor Nova and Microsoft's VS Code.

I developed this theme using the CIELAB colour space, which means as colours shift in hue they maintain a relative brightness. The relationship between colours creates a sense of contrast and balance that is ideal for long stretches of programming.

Wow! Like your color palette, style, and the idea to simplify the visual perception of the code.

I also developed my theme Mokka following the same idea to reduce the amount of colors and visual stress.

I am glad that our themes are similar to each other. I would like to receive your feedback!)
