Bespin Theme for Geany IDE

I love the Bespin theme that can be found for Textmate, Notepad++, and Gedit. Recently I started using the Geany IDE ( as it’s a lot lighter than Eclipse/Netbeans/etc.

I spent the better part of an afternoon using the Online Theme Editor found at ( to recreate (to the best of my abilities) this theme which can now be found at Please note that I only changed a few of the file definition files as that was all I needed to work with. If you are using a language other than HTML, PHP, and Javascript you’ll have to visit the theme editor I linked to above and make the changes there.

    I really found your blog interesting, this is actually my 3rd consecutive comment, while I use CI, i don’t use its native DB abtraction layer, i use 3rd party lib called PHP-AR =

    It’s very ‘railish’ and very agile.(IMO)

      Thanks for the encouraging words! I’ve also used PHP-AR and found it very easy to get up and running with, and much lighter than Doctrine
