Not OP but it looks a little like Dank Mono - unfortunately not a free font, that website is selling it for 40GBP.

I recently put out a theme called Kaia, so it is my favorite (clearly biased). I took what I liked from Monokai and tried to make it more readable. Feel free to check it out and let me know if you like it.

I have tried hundreds now and some I stick with for a few days, but I always switch back to Material Ocean High Contrast.

For me it is the best combination of visual appeal and consistency between a Retina screen and my PC.

So I made this theme for personal use about a year ago or so.

Couple of weeks ago I decided to put it on the market for other people to enjoy.

It's called Laetus and you can download it here.
