Tomorrow Evening theme for IntelliJ IDEA

I'm a big fan of dark color themes for coding. For the last few years I've been using my own version of the Monokai theme. However, newer editors like Atom or VSCode go with pastel colors, which are easier on the eyes (at least for me). After trying out different alternatives for IntelliJ IDEA and WebStorm, I've customized my version of the Tomorrow Night color scheme, which I'd like to share with you:

Tomorrow Evening theme


  1. Download the Tomorrow Evening color scheme from GitHub (click the Raw button).
  2. Go to "File""Settings""Editor""Color Scheme" and select "Import Scheme":

Import scheme

  1. Choose the downloaded file and confirm.

This scheme will work for all JetBrains IDE versions 15+, including the latest 2021 release. I've tested this theme with many languages, but some may not look right out-of-the-box. You can fix this in your Color Scheme language settings by using the "Inherit values from" checkbox.

If you find any issues, feel free to contribute a pull request.

Here is the palette of all the colors that I've used:

#e35374 | 227, 83 , 116
#e78c45 | 231, 140, 69 
#f0c674 | 240, 198, 116
#b9ca4a | 185, 202, 74 
#9cdcfe | 156, 220, 254
#61afef | 97 , 175, 239
#c397d8 | 195, 151, 216
#848484 | 128, 128, 128
#94815e | 116, 113, 94 
#ffffff | 255, 255, 255
