Semantic colorization with Solarized

Oct 30, 2014 at 10:47 AM
Hi everyone,

I've noticed some ostensibly wacky colorization of Python code in VS2013 with PTVS 2.1.

I prefer to use the Solarized Dark theme (via VS2013 Color Themes extension).

For example, braces and operators are black, and function names are not colorized correctly (or at all - they're not distinct from the rest of the code).

Keywords like 'import', 'def', and 'if' are colorized (incorrectly).

So, a few questions:
  • Has anyone else notices anything similar?
  • Is this a result of the semantic colorization introduced in PTVS 2.1?
  • Is this an issue for the Color Themes extension to solve?
Thanks for any ideas!

It's probably something for the theme to solve, they'll need to add customisations for our colors ('Python Class', etc.) as you can see in Tools - Options - Fonts and Colors. You can also customise these colors for yourself.

Okay; good. I'll edit the settings myself.

Thanks for the quick reply!
