Working on a couple themes for LightCMS' Source Editor.

Comments are a bit too dark.
While this looks good, I think it might be less effective than you were shooting for. Think about when you're skimming code. What's the most important thing when trying to find your way around? I would say that function names are rather important. More so that jQuery selectors. I'd rethink you color hierarchy around what information is most important. This is a big reason why I can't use half of the nice looking themes out there. They're very nice to look at but not the best in use. I also agree with @chriswallace that the comments are too dark.
@Evan Brandell Thank you sir
@Chris Wallace! I think they are adequate but I'll take that into consideration. When you blur it they stand out quite nicely in contrast with functions and groups.
@Casey Britt I can certainly see where you are coming from. Thank you for your input. I may explore with getting a little more specific with each language and try to make something that is more complete. However, if you're staring at more than just this little blurb functions do stand out quite well especially when they are contrasted with a comment as all good coders will be doing.
@Matthew Sanders How many monitors have you tested it on? I would recommend trying at least 5 different (non-Apple) monitors to see if it has enough contrast.
I would also run it through a contrast testing tool to see if it adheres to the WCAG guidelines.
@Chris Wallace! You are a gentleman and a scholar. Will do.
*edit: I hadn't ran it through Snook's tool before but I firmly disagree with the result shown for the generic gray color of the type. I find it quite contrasting even on my lame dell monitor next to me. attached a full screen shot of the current unmodified scheme for you to compare contrast with that of the optical contrast given in the dribbble viewport.
Nice. When you're done I'd love to get at the TextMate theme. Would totally use it.
@Galen Gidman Thank you sir, would you like an early beta test? :)
@Matthew Sanders Absolutely. galen [at] galengidman.com
Quit being awesome.
Would love to use this with SublimeText!!
@Maxim McNair Thanks! I'll see what I can do.
Was this ever converted to a textmate theme?
