I got tired of not being able to quickly compare different Sublime Text 2 color schemes and themes so I’m making this gallery. All color schemes are with default ST2 theme and font. Color schemes change the colors of the code area but don’t change the other parts of the UI, the sidebar color for instance. Dark color schemes will typically look better paired with a dark theme but I’ve just kept the default theme for consistency.
I’ve added screenshots that have a portion of coded selected so you can see the selection color. I’ve done all of the default color schemes that ship with ST2 along with many that you can install via package manager. Check out the Sublime Text 2 Themes gallery to see how themes can affect things.
