Hi Rory, as you know, I like experimenting with Csound using Cabbage as its preferential IDE.
So, I’m trying to make a Cabbage theme that will make development more pleasant on my eyes.
My target is:
- pleasant pastel-like colours with the right amount of contrast and saturation (no excessive light/dark contrasts, no oversaturated colours);
- syntax highlighting should make a clear and nice distinction between keywords, identifiers, strings, numbers and comments;
- following latest trends, the overall look should be dark oriented but not too dark… Something like Ableton or Reaper default colour scheme;
- the actual icons for the various options in the toolbar to me looks too blurred (maybe because they are too much detailed for their size). Cabbage is a light application that doesn’t use too many resources of your computer, so I would like its icons to reflect that: simple and linear icons with very few colours, designed to give a more architectural look.
Now, about the colours, I can change them in the Cabbage settings, and I made this look that I like very much:
But now how I can change the toolbar icons?
I noticed that there are some svg in the “Icons” dir on github and I tried to modify them in my local copy, but when I compile Cabbage, it will always use its original icons. How can I make so that Cabbage uses my icons instead of the current ones?
