I Recreated my VSCode Theme πŸ”₯

Hi guys!
So, couple of months back I wrote a blog "I created a VSCode theme" describing about the VS Code theme called "Martian Night" that I made. Fast forward to present, I am here to announce that I recreated my VS Code theme. But wait, what do I mean by "recreate" ?
Actually the thing is I wanted to update my theme, but for some reasons I was unable to release an update on the marketplace, so I had to unpublish the previous one and again publish the new one.

What's new in this Theme??

There are lot of things which are new in this theme. Previously I had used only 2-3 colours for the syntax, but now I tried to introduce more colours to the syntax. Also, I introduced three variants of the theme - Normal, Bold, & italics.

Also, I changed the previous boring logo into something new!!

Why did I upgrade?

The previous one had a lot of issues like lack of colours, high contrast colours and no italics or bold fonts used. This is because I was pretty new to creating VS code theme that time, so I decided to improve my theme, hence I created this one!

How can you try it?

Below are some relevant links for you to try!!

Install it from here (Marketplace) - https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=shaanalam718.martian-night

GitHub Repo - https://github.com/shaan71845/martian-night-vscode-theme

Feel free to leave a ⭐on the repo!!
Feedbacks and comments are appreciated!!
Thank you!!

I really liked the theme! Will definitely use this! Exactly what I wanted a theme for React and TypeScript.

Eid Mubarak by the way ✌️

Awesome theme! It replaced theme I was using for almost 3 years now. If I have to comment something is that when there is no file open, the color don't match. But it is an awesome theme!
