With Dracula currently sinking his teeth into UK television audiences it felt like a good time to revisit the Dracula theme, a seductive blood-soaked colour palette popular with many developers 🦇.

You might be familiar with it already via the Ant Dracula GTK Theme, which is distributed as part of the Ant theme set. That flat-based skin makes heavy use of the Dracula theme colour scheme to creepily evocative effect on most modern Linux desktops.

But did you know that there are Dracula themes available for a horde of other software too, including a trove of FOSS faves?

The terrific draculatheme.com website rounds up a veritable colony of Dracula themes available for well known apps, replete with handy download links and install instructions 🧛🏻‍♂️.

Among the apps Dracula has already sunk his fangs into:

  • Vim
  • Visual Studio Code
  • Telegram
  • Gedit
  • Atom
  • Kate
  • Slack
  • JetBrains
  • Sublime Text
  • Vivaldi web browser

Plus many, many more.

What’s particularly nice is that all of the Dracula themes/skins/syntax highlighting are open source, meaning if they break you can easily contact the developer to let them know, or contribute the fix yourself!

To get stake one of these night-stalking themes for yourself head over to the official website — and should you come across a Dracula theme for an app not listed there, do let us know about it so we can add it here!
