Description:

darK v0.1

darK is color scheme for kdevelop/kate inspired by the Ruby on Rails Screencasts. I used it heavily for developing with Ruby (Ruby on Rails) and thus some of the keywords and types which are highlighted nicely for Ruby syntax highlighting may need to be implemented in the language of your choice. I've included a nicely formatted piece of ruby code so that you can see how the highlighting _should_ look in another language if it doesn't already.

Installation:
1) Either run install.sh script or _append_ the content of files kateschemarc.darK and katesyntaxhighlightingrc.darK to ~/.kde/share/config/kateschemarc and ~/.kde/share/config/katesyntaxhighlightingrc respectivelly.
2) Start kdevelop, go to Settings/Configure Editor/Fonts & Colors and change 'Default schema for kdevelop' to 'darK'

First of all, thanks!

For "plain text files" the text is gray on black :(
And for example with perl although there isn't a syntax definition in the katesyntaxhighlightingrc.darK I see a lot of keywords in gray too.

I really can't understand why kde or kate developers doesn't develop a dark color scheme ;)

It'd be nice if the syntax files included a leading blank line, so they'd be separated from existing syntax entries.

It would also be neat if the installer would check to see if there's already a [dark] section and either overwrite that or notify the user that dark is already installed.

And finally, it'd be neat to use
kde-config --localprefix
in order to identify the installation location, rather than hard-coding ~/.kde/. :)

Overall, though, I'm happy with the theme itself. Thanks for putting this together. :)

It seems that it only comes with the default color scheme.

I haven't tried KDE4, it might do a better job of the dark colorscheming overall
