What color in a theme is causing the UI to get pink text?


#1

I am using One Dark with a theme I’m developing, but for some reason the text in the settings dialog and on tabs is pink.

Where is this coming from?

This is .190, Mac.


#2

One Dark uses the background color of the Syntax theme as “main” color. In case the Syntax background color is pure white (#fff), then its main hue is red. And the titles are a very bright version of the main color, thus looking pink.

An option would be that if a Syntax theme uses white, it would use something else… like blue. Or maybe have no saturation and be 100% monochrome?


#3

In isotope I spin pure white backgrounds to blue before the derivative colors are calculated. Light blue usually looks better than pink-ish.


#4

Agreed

Although this theme’s Bg is #242424


#5

Oh… right. It’s for any greyscale color without saturation. Maybe in that case the whole UI should also be without any saturation. I’ll make an issue and try it out.


#6

Was this ever “fixed”? Seems like I can’t use One Dark at all due to the pink text, on several themes (especially ones with a neutral grey background).

Would be great if the “default” tint could be a neutral gray one. I’ve been using Isotope with much success, but I think One Dark should be made neutral tint unless the syntax has a tint.

My advanced-railscasts-syntax package reproduces this issue reliably, @simurai, if you need a repro :grinning:

As does my (simpler) latest contrib: https://atom.io/themes/gruvbox-mellow

No, not yet. That issue is still open.
