| Comments

Urban Xcode Screenshot

Urban is an Xcode theme that uses a soft dark background, with subtle blue, orange and yellow colors.

Formerly known as ǝɹɐǝqʎǝuoɔ, this theme has been downloaded an astounding 14317 times since the first release, so we decided to make the name a bit more official, make it open-source and put it up on Github.

Installation

The easiest way to install is to use the Alcatraz package manager for Xcode. Go to the colors section and click the install icon next to “Urban”.

You can also install manually using these commands in Terminal:

Xcode 4, 5

1

3
mkdir -p ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/UserData/FontAndColorThemes;
cd ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/UserData/FontAndColorThemes;
curl -O http://raw.github.com/UrbanApps/Urban/blob/master/Urban.dvtcolortheme

Xcode 3

mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/Xcode/Color\ Themes;
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Xcode/Color\ Themes;
curl http://raw.github.com/UrbanApps/Urban/blob/master/Urban.xccolortheme

Restart Xcode and you should be good to go. Enjoy!

Lastly, I run a small software company called Urban Apps. It pays the bills so I can take the time to write helpful things like Urban. If you found this posting helpful at all, I would really appreciate it if you would check out my Apps on the iTunes App Store.

My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
