Copenhagen Nights

Posted by HTML-Kit Support August 31, 2011

One of the great joys of developing HTML-Kit is getting to play with plugins. When I got the email notification of arrival of a new plugin yesterday, it did not matter that it was middle of the night. I had to go check it out pronto.

It did not disappoint.

Introducing Copenhagen Nights Style -- a dark color scheme written by Henrik J. Larsen for HTML-Kit Tools syntax highlighter.

I've generally used a light colorizer style, partly because HTML-Kit defaults to a soft-white background. I must admit though that a dark editor background is easy to get used to, especially with a well-made colorizer style such as this one.

Default style:


With Copenhagen Nights style:


So without further ado, here's how to get your hands on it:

  1. Open HTML-Kit Tools and select "Tools > Install Plugins" from the main menu. Or click the plugin icon on the Action Bar.
  2. Browse to "Colorizer Styles" section and select hlCopenhagenNightsStyle.
  3. Click Install hlCopenhagenNightsStyle.
  4. Once installed, open a HTML document and select "View > Colorizer > Styles > Copenhagen Nights Style" to see it in action.

Copenhagen Nights is a pleasant dark Colorizer Style for HTML-Kit Tools. Denmark is known for many great designers who made a huge difference in consumer electronics (B&O), construction (The Opera House in Sydney), in furniture (The Egg), as well as being known for our absolute dedication in whatever we set to do. I am not saying that I can live up to that, but as far as I know this is the only working reversed colorizer style I have ever seen, so to me it is a little breakthrough ;-)
