Put some fairy dust on Sublime Text

Let's face it, almost every developer has a bit of vanity in them. If you're like me and you want your text-editor to look as dashing as you wished your wardrobe would, then please read on.

Flatland UI Theme

Flatland, as suggested by the name, has a flat design - no bubbly buttons or excessive shadows - and puts a nice and smooth dark feel over your Sublime workspace. Personally I was somewhat bothered by the standard bright directory drawer while using a dark theme such as Amy or SpaceCadet, just didn't feel right.

Over at the Flatland theme github page you can read about how to install and setup your theme.

Personally I like the file tree to be as small as possible since I don't use it for finding files, just to get an overview of the directory structure.

Goto > Goto Anything ctrl + p (Ubuntu) is better suited for finding files, so the option for extra small sidebar tree was a nice surprise. If you would like to try it out, install the theme and add your settings! The following is my current setup (Preferences > Settings - User).

{
  "theme": "Flatland Dark.sublime-theme",
  "color_scheme": "Packages/Theme - Flatland/Flatland Dark.tmTheme",
  "flatland_square_tabs": true,
  "flatland_sidebar_tree_xsmall" : true,
  "caret_style": "phase",
  "detect_indentation": false,
  "ensure_newline_at_eof_on_save": true,
  "font_size": 11,
  "tab_size": 2,
  "translate_tabs_to_spaces": true,
  "trim_trailing_white_space_on_save": true,
  "ignored_packages":
    [
      "Vintage",
      "PHP-Twig"
    ]
}

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! If you have any other theme suggestions, let me know!
