  • Dracula PRO for Visual Studio and minor fixes

    Our users have long requested Dracula PRO support for Visual Studio, and it is finally here with all variants and as close as possible to its VSCode counterpart.

    āœ… We also adjusted the Background and Selection Color in Notepad++, which were overlapping and not giving the necessary highlight.

    šŸŽÆ We've also made a minor tweak to the Sublime Text instructions.

  • 27% smaller and JetBrains 2022

    As you know, Dracula PRO used to come with some videos. This made it difficult for folks to update their local themes, since the .zip package is quite large, and re-downloading it takes time. To help with that, I decided to remove the videos, which makes it 27% smaller now.

    Dracula PRO's on JetBrains IDE's

    JetBrains just released a new version called 2022.1, so if you use IntelliJ, PyCharm, CLion, DataGrip, WebStorm, or RubyMine, it's time to update your Dracula PRO plugin.

  • JetBrains 2021.2 and 150k mark

    JetBrains just released a new version called 2021.2, so if you use IntelliJ, PyCharm, WebStorm, CLion, DataGrip, or RubyMine, it's time to update your Dracula PRO plugin.

    150k Mark

    One of my goals with Dracula PRO is to be as transparent as possible. This includes opening revenue numbers and sharing what happened along the way (even when it's not good).

    Yesterday I noticed that we just hit $151,328.16 in sales and I decided to write a Twitter thread with some lessons learned, along with an update to the Dracula PRO Journey page.

    Thank you for making this journey possible, I hope these insights are helpful! šŸ™

  • Free Audiobook and Insomnia

    The last two weeks have been really busy. I decided to create this page to show Dracula PRO's journey from $0 to $100k and it blew up. Since then, 218 people bought Dracula PRO, which represents $13,599.35.

    I'm not gonna pretend it was all good. To be quite frank, I wasn't expecting such a high volume of new users. This generated a flood of support emails and questions via DM. Taking care of all this alone has been very difficult, especially because I have a full-time job that consumes me a lot.

    Still, I couldn't be more proud to see this community growing. šŸ’œ

    Dracula PRO's journey

    Audiobook

    I've always believed that tools and hard skills are only a part of what makes a productive developer. That's why I decided to write a book about habits and soft skills.

    After months of planning and editing, the audiobook is now available on Audible. šŸŽ‰

    I insisted on recording with my own voice, instead of some random guy who sounds like a robot. In total, there are 3 hours 21 minutes and 35 seconds of audio, which includes not only the content of the book but also extra comments that are made at the end of each chapter.

    Dracula PRO users are getting all this for free. Enjoy! šŸ˜

    Zeno recording the audiobook

    Insomnia

    Dracula PRO is also getting a new theme - Insomnia is now available - including its 5 different variations: Blade, Buffy, Lincoln, Morbius, and Van Helsing.

    If you don't know Insomnia, it's a cross-platform REST API client which is getting pretty popular.

  • Big Sur icons and JetBrains 2020.3

    • JetBrains recently launched the 2020.3 stable version. Two months ago I released an update for that, but many users didn't download it yet, so this is a friendly reminder to get the latest version.
    • Monitors are getting bigger and bigger, so I decided to include a new 8K resolution wallpaper for those people who enjoy the extra space.
    • This is for those who are using the new macOS Big Sur. You probably noticed that Apple updated the desktop icons to a skeuomorphism style, so here's a new set of fresh icons for you to start using.

  • Chrome and Firefox

    From Mosaic to Netscape to IE6.

    We all love using browsers to navigate through this crazy world called the internet. We spend a lot of time on our code editors and terminals, but I bet we spend even more time on web browsers.

    That's why having a Dracula PRO theme for the most popular browsers is not only cool; it's a must-have.

    Chrome

    Starting with the most used browser in the world. Here are all six variations of Dracula PRO on Google Chrome.

    Dracula Pro for Chrome

    Firefox

    Now let's talk about Mozilla's main project - Firefox. What I love about this theme are the accent colors present on the active tabs and buttons. It's a simple, gorgeous detail.

    They are programmatically generated with JavaScript, converted to SVGs, and then exported as PNGs to fit every platform and screen size.

  • Design Files

    Many people asked if the Dracula PRO package included the color codes for them to use in other apps.

    Because of that, I decided to not only describe all colors in HEX, RGB, and HSL, but also add some design files for:

    • Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator
    • Figma
    • Sketch

  • XCode Major Update

    Thanks to the feedback provided by Dominik Kozlowski, the XCode theme received a major update.

    All the color variations, font weights, and Console schemes have been improved. If you're a Swift or Objective-C developer, I'm sure you're going to like this.

  • JetBrains Revamp

    I received some emails asking why the JetBrains IDEs themes were so different than the VSCode and Sublime themes.

    Although all editors are different and it's not possible to have a 100% match, those feedbacks were completely right, so I decided to rethink the entire JetBrains theme. Here's the result:

    Before:

    After:

    Not only the sidebar, file tree, tabs, and line numbers were updated. I also revisited the syntax highlighting for all languages.
