Boxy – It Was the Most Hackable Theme for Sublime Text 3


Thank you! I am using green accent and that’s why I thought indent guide color was affected by it :slight_smile:

I like this theme very much!! Thank you for your work.
One question: do you think you can add an option to have a smaller Search panel? Even if I set the global theme to “xs”, the search/replace panel is too big for my taste… :slightly_smiling:

Thanks again.



I am having an issue with the Tab flavour theme_tab_selected_…

It seems all tabs gets marked as selected? Any ideas?

Boxy Theme Addon - Widget Font <SIZE> addons were removed.
Now you can change console & find panel font size via Boxy Theme Addon - Widget Font Size.

Also starting from now you can install File Icons Extended package which adds syntax aliases & icons for such file types as Git, Gulpfile, Bower & etc. Icon requests are welcome :wink:

Thanks for the credit above, and the one in messages/4.0.0.txt.

The update looks good, the preset migration to skins was an excellent idea, it works well.

The idea to migrate to Skins package is provided by @Equinusocio, thanks him for that :wink: The current implementation is just a little bit dirty, but works even better.



BTW I forgot to say thanks for bringing the AngularJS GIT commit guidelines to my attention. They are excellent and I’ll be using them for all my projects in future.



@oivva I think you should use my Material Theme default scheme (instead of Ocean) since you add my theme as skin. :slight_smile:

I think that adding a clone of my Material Theme into your theme isn’t either a good ad politically correct idea :slight_smile:



Oh, no, I should not do that) I think that Material Theme is the choice of those users who want amazing ST look out of the box, that’s why it’s so popular. Boxy Theme is the choice of those users who need hackability and have very specific tastes. Skins are just the example how they can customize it.



The Material Theme skin looks exactly to my Material Theme, that is a different theme from your Boxy. It uses exactly the same UI color scheme, but not the code color and doesn’t follow the original Material Theme specs. I think it can trick users that, perhaps, think that Material Theme is only a skin of Boxy, i think you should specify that this skin is a replica of the original theme and give a credit, maybe in the description



Oh, I understand, I’ll add a credit in the readme. Previously I added it to the wiki, but it seems not many users take a look at it.



Done. I’ve added link to the original under the skin section. Also I’ve added reference link in
