Change black theme for NotePad++ and Eclipse

07 Jun

Change colors to reduce eye strain


1. create folder themes in “C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\”

2. put theme file (.xml) in there.

3. open NotePadd++ > Setting > Style configurator > select theme.

Google Chrome

Hạn chế sử dụng vì khi sử dụng theme tối nhưng khi chuyển trang lại hiển thị trang trắng. Thay đổi độ tương phản mạnh nhiều lần sẽ không tốt cho mắt.



Setting > Themes > select theme: Dark

Hạn chế sử dụng. Hoặc sử dụng: Soft Grey.


  • Eclipse Marketplace:
    ← Drag this button to your Eclipse workbench to install;
  • Update site:

    Or download this plugin by using Help > Install New Software... and add the update site:
  • Manual:

    Or download moonrise_0.8.9.jar package and put it into your Eclipse \dropins\plugins\ folder;

  • Restart Eclipse and go to Window > Preferences > General > Appearance;
  • Select MoonRise (standalone) or, for a little better tabs decoration, install Eclipse 4 Chrome Theme from marketplace or from here and select MoonRise;
  • Rest your eyes 😉

Long note: error in hint

Syntax highlighting scheme:
