Light vs. Dark Themes

Developers often have strong opinions about their environment and habits, such as the debate about tabs vesus spaces. I recently realized I prefer certain types of themes or color schemes for my software, depending on the type of activity.

For straight up writing, like blog posts or notes, I prefer a light theme.

When the command line or code is involved, I prefer a dark theme.
