It would be great if we could also change the opacity of the background.

George NotGiven George NotGiven  says in response to Behrang Saeedzadeh:

I completely agree.  This would be a nice feature, particulary on Mac OS X.  Also, please allow the blur feature for lower opacities.


Can you please also make the other UI element's editable?  The various elements that do not use Mac OS X specific appearance could very much use a dark appearance as well for us Mac users.


Further, can you please include these dark themes in the system by default?

Here's a PHP script I wrote to use a color scheme from the web site as the basis for a custom editor color spec in PhpStorm. I bet it works for other JetBrainy tools.


You will almost certainly want to customize the script as well as choose your own color scheme in The $map array is where it all happens. Sorry I don't have element names for more languages.
