Editor Color Scheme

Recently Slashdot featured a discussion of the best color scheme for programming. From that discussion I’ve discovered the zenburn color scheme, and have switched to it. I like the fact that the background is not stark black; the reduced contrast feels easier on my eyes.

Here are some resources I found from that discussion for color schemes:

What color scheme do you prefer for programming? There are several others at the vim color scheme test, above, that I’m also interested in trying out.

Programming Fonts

with 4 comments

I’ve long been dissatisfied with Courier New as a programming font; I’ve found the characters to be bulky and the serifs distracting.  For the past year or so I’ve settled on the beautiful Lucida Console as my favorite font to code in.  Lucida Console is bundled with Windows XP and Windows Vista, and unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be available for free redistribution.  However, you can find some other aesthetically pleasing fixed-width programming fonts, some of which are available for free download, at Hamstu’s Typography of Code.
