Night Shift theme


I developped a custom theme for Visual Studio Code.

This theme's main goal is to provide a dark, readable & clean experience into your favorite code editor. There is also 7 variants included :

  • No bold
  • No italic
  • No italic & bold
  • Flat (no-borders)
  • Lite dark
  • Lite dark (no-borders)
  • Light color scheme

Visit Night Shift website for more info.

You'll find an iTerm2 port of this theme here.


Launch VS Code Quick Open (⌘+P or ctrl+P), paste the following command, and press Enter.

ext install jean.desaturated

Or install this theme from the extension panel, search for "Night Shift theme".

You can find this theme in the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.


As I work mainly with Javascript, Typescript, HTML/CSS & PHP, these are for now the only fully supported languages.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have some suggestions of improvements or language addition requests.
