I have managed to improve the backend of my user-made RStudio themes collection recently: Until recently, I had maintained the collection manually, adding new themes by hand and sorting everything. Now, everything is much more automated, making it easier to maintain in the future. All themes are included in a nice CSV file (this one) that can easily be sorted via R. The main overview is directly sourcing from this CSV file and creating the Markdown list via some R code.
The universe of RStudio themes is growing constantly. I have updated the RStudio Theme Collection to account for new themes that have been created recently. Thanks to z3tt for the Viridis theme, to William Carcamo for the Custom theme, to Alfredo Hernández for the Darkula theme, to Matt Dube for several themes (Gruvbox, Paper Color), to Linda for Material Theme Darker / darkrstudio, to Alessio Maggiorelli for the Matrix Glow theme, to Stephen Siegert for the Nord Polar Night theme, and to David Gibson for the Ayu themes (dark, mirage, light).
It’s great to see that the RStudio theme selection is growing thanks to custom themes being created by users. Many of them are ports of themes that work well in other code editors. I am (kind of) regularly updating the RStudio Theme Collection which I had first created in August. In the most recent update at the end of October / beginning of November, I have added the following dark themes: Asher, Fairyfloss, Fairyfloss Dark, Mojave Dark, Nord One (a mashup of the Nord theme and Atom’s dark theme), One Dark.
RStudio has recently added a feature that allows users to create custom themes. However, it seems that there is no central place to find those custom RStudio themes. I have just started a Github repository which hosts a collection of user-made RStudio themes. I have tried to find as many themes as possible via Github and search engines. If something is missing on this list or if you have recently created your own RStudio theme, please feel free to create a pull request or open an issue (or simply send me an e-mail).
I recently discovered the Nord theme for VS Code and was absolutely blown away by its simplicity and elegance. Next thing I know, I’m creating a RStudio port of this theme - you can find it here on Github. If you are using RStudio v1.2.0 or newer, you can directly install the theme via the preferences dialogue. Feel free to give it a try! If you are like me and want to know more about the Nord theme family, the developer of the VS Code theme has created a stunning website https://www.
