It contains a debugger, tools for operating with Git, syntax highlighting, IntelliSense, and restructuring tools. It also has an extensive range of customization variants: custom themes, keyboard shortcuts, and configuration files. It is distributed for free and initially was developed as an open source software, yet certain ready-made builds are distributed under a proprietary license.

Why Use VSCode Themes At All?

In Visual Studio Code (VSCode), you can modify your themes in several ways. The easiest thing to do would be to install a ready — made version.
