Hi, can someone explain why my Atom is so gray compared to Sublime-text? It’s a freshly installed Atom, from the ppa at ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/atom/ubuntu . The deb package is version 0.96.0~git20140519~webupd8~saucy0
I am using the default UI theme (Atom Dark), and the Monokai syntax theme in Atom. In Sublime-text I am using the Monokai (SL) theme.
I have compared the color values of the two themes, and all those I looked at was the exact same value. Still my Atom editor is much grayer than Sublime. I don’t know if the background should be the same, but that is also a lot more gray and boring in Atom. I spoke with a friend, and he said that he didn’t notice that Atom was more gray than his Sublime-text. for me it’s impossible to miss, much harder to read.
Please see attached screenshot, http://dl.dropbox.com/u/29093267/screenshot_20140521_01_d.png
Here is a screenshot of the welcome screen, http://dl.dropbox.com/u/29093267/screenshot_20140521_01_6.png . As you can see, there is no white text, it’s gray. I am comparing it with the screenshot at github.com/kevinsawicki/monokai, which is the theme I use. It’s pretty much not the same colors.
This is my first day with Atom, so I hope I am not missing anything obvious, tried to find any other reports, but didn’t. Have been waiting for some time to be able to test this editor out now, and besides that it’s hard to read due to this, it seems pretty awesome and worth the hype.
