If you’re a regular follower of this blog you’ll remember a recent article titled Ulysses and the Art of User Subscriptions. Since I’ve been using Ulysses for some time now, I’ve tried several different themes for the editor and while I’ve found a few that are nice, I thought I’d throw my hat into the ring and develop a couple of themes for myself.
Below are two new themes, Dracula Redux & Bone and Blood that you can download immediately from the Ulysses Style Exchange and use while you’re crafting your next novel or article.
There are plenty of themes on the market that cross between different applications, but none seem to be as prolific as the Dracula Theme.
While there is an official Dracula theme for Ulysses, it’s kinda-sorta a bit off the mark.
So I’ve formulated my own take on the Dracula Theme colour set and applied it to the Ulysses editor with my new theme Dracula Redux.
Bone and Blood
After creating the Dracula Redux theme, I had a quick look through the Ulysses Style Exchange to look for a tri-tone colour theme using red as it’s primary colour. Failing to find anything that I really liked, I decided to create Bone and Blood in response.
Beige colours in the light theme give rise to sand and deserts, contrasted with the stark white bleached bone of the body text and fresh red of spilled blood of links and additional styling.
