Truly dark theme of Rstudio

Posted by Rui Ying on Friday, July 16, 2021

There’s no doubt that Rstudio is the No.1 IDE in R world. However, it’s intolerable that it doesn’t support a good dark theme. Although one can choose some colour schemes by default, you may still find the panel board is blue even if you have setted a “dark theme”. And to be honest, this has been a good reason for me to not use Rstudio: it is too ugly.

Yesterday I found a good package – darkstudio to solve this. In addition to rscodeio, it now finally becomes sexy (The screenshot is done by iShot).
