Putty your IDE

If you’re a developer or programmer and have spent considerable time reading and writing code, you know how important it is to have a good color scheme in your IDE that’s easy to read and easy for your eyes.

There are a lot of different color schemes for different IDE’s. I’ve looked on-and-off for years. I stuck to Ruby Blue on different IDE’s for quite some time. I recently stumbled on one and have ported it to different IDE’s... Putty!

Putty for TextMate
The theme was originally created for TextMate

Download here.

Putty-port for Notepad++
If like me you don’t work on a Mac, Notepad++ is a great alternative. I ported the TextMate theme file for Putty to a Notepad++ Style XML for your enjoyment.

Download here (Right-click > Save as).

Putty-port for MS Visual Studio 2005 and up
I wanted to have a similar theme for Visual Studio (2005+) for quite some time. I finally got around to making one for Visual Studio.
