    Philipp got a reaction from energia in Arduino 1.x.x theme for Energia (just more red!)   
    Black text for the tabs looks way better, thanks!
     
    Anti Aliasing and ClearType are enabled.
    I had some difficulties to change the editor font and to enable anti aliasing for the editor itself.
    Wiring, Arduino and Energia use the Processing IDE, and this for some reason has a pretty clear theme.txt config file which defines the appereance of everything except the editor, and a more general and obscure preferences.txt located in another folder.
    It took me some time to figure out why the heck the Consolas font in the console looked perfectly fine but was aliased in the editor. Turned out that the theme itself is anti-aliased by default, the editor is not! You can however enable it in the preferences.txt to make Consolas way nicer to read.
     
    I think I will submit this theme to the git, and I may also write a short tutorial on how to change the appereance on all the Processing based IDEs, if people are interested

    Do you have anti-alias turned on?
    How about making the tab text black for both active and inactive
     
    And if we are tweaking, can we get the default font to be Consolas ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consolas.

    Looks very nice! I think you should submit this for formal review. You can follow the steps here to get your changes considered, discussed and potentially included in the code base:

    Hey,
    just a week ago I discovered Energia on hackaday and was very happy to see that I'm not the only one who loves the Launchpad idea but doesn't really want to install CCS or a whole lot of development tools just to get started. I think Energia really opens a new way for beginners to get into programming one of those MSP430 chips.
     
    Until now I experienced no problems at all using the Energia IDE, which is quite impressive in my opinion. I think Robert did an amazing job porting all the Arduino features to a tiny little 4.30$ dev tool.
    The only thing I noticed was the different theme compared to the recent arduino 1.x.x IDEs. Energia's current theme is basically a red version of the Wiring theme or Arduino 0xx. Because I really like the Arduino IDE and it's current design, I made a red version of it to replace the somewhat 'old fashioned' theme Energia is currently using.
    I attached a comparison of the four themes below, beginning from the top left there are: Arduino 1.0, my variation of the Energia theme, the current version of Wiring and the original Energia theme.
     
    What do you think?
    Cheers, Philipp

    I like it. I like that the current tab is white not dark. What does it look like with multiple source file tabs open?
