Theme font glow capability

#1

I saw this plugin for vscode and would love it if sublime was able to allow for a theme to specify a glow parameter for text. I think there is a good chance this could add a great readability improvement for some themes.

This is definitely awesome!!!

I wonder if I will not change for VSCode only for this feature! ^^’

How did you accomplish that?

presumably by making some changes in core ST to support it - be patient, I’m sure we will get details when the next build is released :wink:

@bschaaf that is fantastic :slight_smile:

Can you adjust the weight of the glow for different elements?

I’ve got it working as a font style similar to italics and bold. Not ruling it out, but fine grained weight adjustments would require some larger changes to the codebase :slight_smile:

@bschaaf Is it also possible to create a text-shadow effect? Like in the code snippets in https://mattkretz.github.io/2019/05/27/vectorized-conversion-from-utf8-using-stdx-simd.html ?

Shadows would require much larger changes to the codebase, but I’m not ruling it out
