Changing Eclipse Colour Theme

The default eclipse colour scheme is too bright and quite painful to the eye. Trying to change it isn’t the easiest thing to do either as I have spent 30min with no luck. But thanks to the guys behind Eclipse Color Theme plugin, you can change the color theme in an instant.

Installing the plugin is way too easy too, just drag and drop button below to running eclipse window (not on the text editor bit — but on the menu / other area)


Once installed and eclipse restarted, you will find following menu on the preference window to change colours

Unfortunately this only changes the editor window. Many other community attempts to change other components is available here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5053834/eclipse-ide-for-java-full-dark-theme but so far I haven’t found one that’s effective & looks good for Eclipse 4 running on Windows 7. Stay tuned will keep you posted.
