Colors look "washed out" on Ubuntu 20.04 and Archlinux

Hi @mvettosi :wave:

This doesn't look like a problem of the theme but a result of your local setup and hardware. As you already described in the issue title the colors "look" different, but in fact the color codes defined by the theme are the same on every OS and IDE. You can verify this by using an application like Gpick to get the color that is rendered and compare it to the colors defined by this theme, e.g. class names. Normally they should both match, but if not then it is a sign that you're running into the (kind of famous) problem of color space differences. The reason for this can be different, for example your monitor is runs a specific color profile or your systems rendering engine (e.g. "Mutter" on GNOME or wlroots on Sway) is configured with a different color appereance. In general the different methods of interpreting the RGB color model is a well-known problem in the digital design and computer graphics (including games) industry and they will never be a one-to-rule-them-all standard. I know that it is often kind of frustrating because I also run multiple Linux systems on my desktop computer where all of them use different window manager and renders/compositors, but I switched to macOS as my main productivity system which has a great concept of visualizating colors. The fact that the screenshots of this theme look that crisp is because they were made on a Apple Retina display which provide a really high quality due to a higher pixel density and a "really natural" color feeling.

Long stoey short: The is nothing that can be done from the side of this theme but only on the user side by trying to get a setup that uses a "natural" and color rich rendering, e.g. macOS or through good configurations for the systems rendering engine (software-side) and the used monitor (hardware-side).

[QUESTION] Terminal theme

Hi @trashCODEeR :wave:

I guess you're referring to the shell prompt when you say "theme". If so then you can find my own custom ZSH shell promt theme in my .dotfile repository. If you refer to the colortest then this was a script that from the stark/Color-Scripts repository.

I've got a Nord slack theme that works better with Dark mode, would you consider adding it here?

Theme:

#1A1D21,#3B4252,#88C0D0,#2E3440,#3B4252,#D8DEE9,#A3BE8C,#81A1C1,#3B4252,#D8DEE9

Issue with the current one: The background colour on the sidebar is a shade of grey that clashes with the dark mode background grey.

Changes in this theme: Only the Column BG has been changed, to the slack dark theme background colour

I've got a Nord slack theme that works better with Dark mode, would you consider adding it here?

This theme uses nord0 for the sidebar which is the darkest color of the Nord palette. One of the design principles of Nord is that "dark" doesn't mean that is must be somewhere near #000000 which is one of the most common mistakes of "dark modes". Slack also made this mistake and Apple when they decided to simply invert colors, where I am a little disappointed, contrary to their otherwise high quality work.

I'm a fan of the Refactoding UI book and the great design knowledge of the authors (creators of the famous "Tailwaind CSS" project) which is used as inspiration for most Nord design concepts. One example I often refer to is one of the preview from the book regarding "depth of view" when developing "dark modes":

<p align="center"><img src="https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/7836623/133967773-b2c0235b-0501-4499-9f8d-e6968652e8d2.png" /></p>

This concept can be seen in this Slack theme too where the sidebar should indeed have a color that is brighter than the window. I can see that is doesn't fit the overall appereance, but this is a problem of Slack itself because they don't allow users to customize the actual window background color when enabling the "dark mode".

The solution for this problem would be that Slack allows to customize the background color for the both the "dark" and "light" mode, but I guess they have way plans with way higher priorities than improving this small disadvantage. Therefore I can currently only point out that every user has to adapt the theme on their own.

Color tokens for bracket pair colorization (#231) VS Code 1.60 [1] (August 2021) introduced native, high performance bracket pair colorization [2] (opt-in via `editor.bracketPairColorization.enabled` setting) to address performance issues of popular extensions. The color tokens have been added and adjusted to match Nord's theme style: - `statusBarItem.warningBackground` - the background color used for warning items in the status bar that stand out from other status bar entries to indicate warning conditions. - `statusBarItem.warningForeground` - the foreground color used for warning items in the status bar that stand out from other status bar entries to indicate warning conditions. Note that bracket pair colorization is a feature that does not go well with the design concepts of Nord and the recommendation is therefore to not enable it. Of course this is always a personal preference and the feature be used as you wish, but note that the bracket colors defined by the Nord theme won't be changed on request but users can simply customize it on their own [3].

Bracket color in VSCode 1.60

The most recent update to VSCode brings a new feature, which colorizes brackets fast and also allows customization. Is it possible to incorporate the feature with the wonderful Nord theme? Thanks!
