Creating a full IDE theme for PHPStorm


I'm switching to phpstorm from sublime text, and I would like to know if it's possible to develop a full IDE theme (menu included).

I currently use this sublime text theme and I'd love to develop it for phpstorm.

I've seen that the Darcula theme already edit the IDE appearance, is it possible to develop a theme like that or the only skinnable part is the code ?

Any help apreciated,

Hi there,

Generally speaking, the editor area is the only thing you can easily configure (this includes some other elements as well like debugger, console, file status etc -- basically only code and supporting it stuff).

The GUI is completely different thing. You still can change it .. but it has to be done in a completely different way --
