Flatland and Flatland-Alt, Two Flat Sublime Text Themes

Flatland, and a derivative theme, Flatland-Alt, are a couple beautiful Sublime Text themes. Flatland is available on Package Control, however, Flatland-Alt must be installed manually, as it’s not on Package Control yet.

To manually install the Flatland-Alt theme, here’s the instructions from the README at GitHub:

## Installation
Flatland-Alt is a Sublime package. Currently, you must install it manually.

1. [Download the theme files](https://github.com/jamiewilson/flatland-alt/archive/master.zip)
2. Unzip the files and rename the newly created folder to `flatland-alt`
3. Copy the folder into the Sublime Text Packages folder. On a Mac that's located at Library > Application Support > Sublime Text > Packages. You can find that directory by selecting Preferences > Browse Packages...

If you’re on Linux, rename the flatland-alt-master folder to flatland-master and move it to ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/.

Flatland-Alt is different from the original Flatland in a few ways, most noticeably is the red color instead of blue. Flatland-Alt also only comes with a dark version and there’s only square tabs. The orange accent color in Flatland-Alt is a nice compliment to the default Numix GTK theme color.

And here’s Flatland-Alt

Flatland-Alt

Both are very nice themes in my opinion, and I’ve used them both before, although not for long periods of time. I just love Spacefunk.

Which do you prefer? Spacefunk, Soda, Spacegray, itg.flat, Flatland, or Flatland-Alt?

I’ll be posting a few more beautiful Sublime Text themes in the next few days, it’s amazing how many relatively unknown themes are out there, that aren’t total crap. You can probably tell I enjoy rather minimalistic themes with flat, dark colors, and large tabs (sometimes).

Know of any worthy Sublime Text themes I should check out?

Spacefunk Sublime Text Theme Is Awesome

I still love Sublime Text. I made a post a while ago about some of my favorite Sublime Text themes. Since then, I’ve got a new favorite, Spacefunk, by Twiebie.

I like it a lot because it has a gray variation instead of the dark bluish color. However, it does have the dark blue color scheme available, too. You can install it via Package Control.

Spacefunk is based on the Spacegray theme from kkga and comes with two color schemes, Blue Monday, and Gray Tuesday. A screenshot of Blue Monday is below.

More screenshots can be seen at the GitHub repository. Just search for Spacefunk in Package Control to install it. To activate Blue Monday, add this to your user preferences file:

{
  "theme": "Spacefunk (Blue Monday).sublime-theme",
  "color_scheme": "Packages/Theme - Spacefunk/Future Funk (Blue Monday).tmTheme"
}

For the Gray Tuesday scheme, add this to your user preferences file:

{
  "theme": "Spacefunk (Grey Tuesday).sublime-theme",
  "color_scheme": "Packages/Theme - Spacefunk/Future Funk (Grey Tuesday).tmTheme"
}

There’s other customization you can apply too. For a light colored sidebar, add this to your user preferences file:

{
  "spacefunk_sidebar_light": true
}

Spacefunk is the Sublime Text theme I’m using on every machine I use now. The Gray Tuesday scheme is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Dark blue schemes seem to be very popular in the Sublime Text community, so it’s difficult to find other color schemes that look nice.

Which do you prefer? Spacefunk, Soda, Spacegray, itg.flat, Flatland, or Flatland-Alt?

Needless to say, I’ll probably be sticking with Spacefunk for a while. And if you’re a fan of Spacegray, you should give Spacefunk a try, you’ll probably enjoy it.

My Most Used Sublime Text Themes, And A New One

Without a doubt, Soda and Spacegray. If you’ve ever used Sublime Text 2 or 3 then you’ve probably heard of Soda, and maybe even Spacegray. Both are solid themes with great looks.

Soda’s alternate tab style and folder icons in the sidebar are what keep me using Soda on and off. Every now and then I try something new. Mostly, however, I use Soda and Spacegray. The included color schemes alone make Spacegray worth installing, IMO.

Lately, the last week at most, I’ve been using itg.flat. It’s a new-ish, flat theme and I’m pretty in love with it. The first commit was made to Github on December 2, 2013, so it’s just a month old. I do wish the “small tabs” were a little smaller, but, I do really like the sidebar folder icons. itg.flat comes with dark and light variations, and includes dark and light color schemes, as well.

itg.flat is being actively updated on Github, too, the last update was eight days ago. Spacegray is very active as well, with an update two days ago, but Soda hasn’t seen an update in about five months.

One screenshot of each theme below. I’m using the Spacegray color scheme, base16-ocean, in each of the screenshots, just because that’s about the only color scheme I use.
