Dark themes for Flash Builder
Spending a lot of time in front of a bright LCD monitor can be a real pain for the eyes. But there’s no good reason why you should keep the default white background behind your code. After a search I found that some people have already prepared configurations that will allow you to have bright text on a dark background.
Quick list of themes
After testing them for a while I’m currently using fb-zenburnish.
Installing a theme
First download the file, and unzip if necessary. You should have an .epf file. Now go to the Flash Builder, and from the File menu select Import->Other. (you might want to backup your current settings before importing the new ones, just choose Export instead of Import and it should be a straight forward process)
Than choose Preferences from the General node and click Next.
Than just browse for the epf file and click Finish.
Your brand new color scheme should be set.
