Dark colours in NetBeans

Okay I’m still on the hunt for the elusive dark colour look-and-feel for NetBeans. I found this site that has great information about the NimROD L&F. This sets the widgets to a dark colour (or you could customise your own colours with NimROD).

Note that this is separate from the NetBeans colour themes which control editor colours. For that, I quite like Twilight and Aloha, although each needs tweaking to fix highlight colours for things such as breakpoints and step colours, or for highlighting code differences. Still, it’s a good start.

Wouldn’t it be nice to organise your books like this?

Only, you’d have to have some sort of catalogue with the book’s colour to be able to find anything (probably use LibraryThing and add a colour tag).

Still, it looks nice 🙂
