If you've ever visited my blog before, you'll notice it looks a bit different. I finally took the time to make a dark theme! Only 5 or so years late to the party. But late or not, I have a new theme to show off, so let's have a look!
Before and after
I only put a couple of hours into trying out different colors and contrasts, so this is still a bit of a work in progress. But I can't say I'm not pleased. Let's have a look at what it used to look like.
So, that doesn't look terrible in any way, but it doesn't fit the "programmer aesthetic". It doesn't fit my aesthetic. The new theme is much more "me", and although you should already be seeing it all around here, here's the same image as above with the new theme.
Much better! There are still a few rough edges, and I keep finding details where the old theme isn't being overridden correctly (because this is all just on top of Bootstrap), but it's all mostly there.
Parts of the puzzle
There are really only two parts to this. I'm still using the same
voidy-bootstrap theme as
before, but I rewrote some of the CSS with the somewhat Halloween-looking
experience you're looking at right now. Which is fitting, considering Halloween
is just around the corner!
The second part is the fantastic
dracula theme for Pygments
which gives the neat colorization of code snippets. That I find to be the single
That's all there is to it, enjoy the new theme!
