New Look for NetBeans IDE 8.1 (Part 1)

Geertjan Wielenga

In My Current NetBeans Look, I described a look and feel and related settings that I have been using for a while with NetBeans IDE. It's served me well, I've been very happy with it. From today, though, I'm going to be trying something completely new, Darcula for NetBeans IDE, which is completely new in the NetBeans Plugin Portal (click to enlarge the image below):

Here's two more screenshots showing the new look, click to enlarge them to their true size:

    It does not work for js and java file editors in windows 10

    It's not supposed to 'work' for the editor at all... The plugin changes the look and feel of the IDE, not of the editor fonts and colors, etc. Just go to Tools | Options and switch the Fonts & Colors profile to "Norway Today" and tweak it a bit to match the colors you'd like to have.

    Great! Now, it is the best alternative to broken (scroll bar) dark nimbus
