Yesterday, I published a new version of my first VS Code theme - Borealis.

It is a dark theme based on different shades of teal with yellow as its main contrast color. I designed it to be easy on the eyes, adhering to the strict guidelines of the WCAG 2.0 guidelines for contrast accessibility.

The aurora borealis served as the inspiration for this theme, with its teal like colors, mixed with violets, pink, greens, and the dark of the night sky in Alaska.
