Two new RStudio themes

Sometimes you see a picture and think to yourself “oh I like the colour composition here”. Well when I think that, I also think “this would make a great RStudio theme”. So I’ve created two more RStudio themes!

I’ve renamed my original noodle repository, where I kept the first theme I created, to rsthemes since it made sense to keep all of the themes I’ve made together. You can find it here: https://github.com/benharrap/rsthemes

Knitted

The knitted theme came from a jumper that I got for my kid. My partner and I were at a market for locally made goods and came across this stand where a nanna was selling little knitted jumpers that she made. It was the coolest jumper I’d ever seen and I wish she made them in adult sizes too. There’s no point trying to describe it, just take a look:

I love the bright colours in the jumper and the pale colours looked like they’d work as a background, so I turned it into an RStudio theme. I’m pretty happy with the results:

Corymbia

I was out for a walk in Canberra’s botanic gardens and walked past this beautiful plant, later identified by my dad as corymbia ficifolia. It’s an Australian native with gorgeous blooms. While I’d already walked past it I thought it was such a lovely colour scheme that I went back to snap a picture. Here’s what I took:

And here’s what the theme ended up like:
