While most of the developers like to work on an IDE with dark theme, I still prefer my code to be on a white background.
Am I the only one with this odd taste or are there any other fellow devs with similar interests 🤔

    I understand people have different preferences, but everytime I see white background my eyes literally cry :D

    @architect Oh is it? Power of my eyes are little bit on a higher side. It's probably due to that I cannot handle IDEs set to a dark theme!

    As they say... Once go black never go back. Or something like that.

    @Agred I tried black theme due to peer pressure but I don't know. My eyes were not too comfortable. Maybe I've not used it for a longer period to get used to it.

    Sean barrett of the awesome stb libraries is a hardcore white background ide coder. https://github.com/nothings/stb
    He also doesnt use auto completion and stick with the vs2013 as far as I know. The important thing is how you feel comfortable I guess.

    Light theme here as well. Primarily because I feel intense pain when switching from a dark themed IDE to a browser, Finder or any other light themed app.

    @kgbemployee And what do you do with the white background of most websites?

    @freakko that's what the extension does. It replaces the white with dark amd inverts everything else. I use it all the time and my eyes don't bleed anymore. 😋

    The default theme on pycharm is too bright, switched to the dark theme for less strain on the eyes
