Make your Chrome developer tools look like this:

"Elements"
 "Console"

As noted in Darcy Clarke's blog post, here's how to install this user stylesheet:

Mac: /Users/YourUsername/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/User StyleSheets/Custom.css

PC: C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets\Custom.css ~Thanks to @VSC

Ubuntu (Chromium): ~/.config/chromium/Default/User\ StyleSheets/Custom.css ~Thanks to @Carlos

@tbranyen

You are a god.

@bentruyman
Owner

Updated to use proper highlighting in "Scripts" tab, also some other minor fixes. New prompt arrow icons as well that look slightly better on a darker background.

@bentruyman
Owner

Updated again because HTML and CSS can show in the "Scripts" tab.

@bentruyman
Owner

Fixed the color of external/resource links.

@bentruyman
Owner

Added pulsating effect on error messages in the console. Tell me if this is too obnoxious.

@darcyclarke

This looks awesome. Great work ben!

@guitarzan

The pulsating error messages are awesome! Good work all around.

Please see here for code to restore full-width highlighting and hover highlighting in the element inspector:
https://gist.github.com/1151942

@bentruyman
Owner

@guitarzan Glad you like it! And thanks for the heads up on the highlighting. <3

@bentruyman
Owner

Restored highlighting as suggested by @guitarzan.

@davidl
davidl commented Aug 24, 2011

I started poking around the sidebar styles, using colors from your Tomorrow Theme:

https://gist.github.com/1168185

(The additions are at the end.)

@curtisblackwell

made arrows display on selected elements (lines 167-168).

@Cottser
Cottser commented Sep 27, 2011

Another version, based off of @davidl's sidebar theme but using colours from IR_Black and added a comprehensive selector to change font family, font size, and background color on all platforms (hopefully). Uses 13px Panic Sans by default.

https://gist.github.com/1245727

Edit: Also added view-source highlighting based on @mreinhardt's work here: https://gist.github.com/1207219

@bentruyman
Owner

Thanks @curtisblackwell !

@sideshowbarker

Made a fork that adds syntax highlighting for DOM snippets in console message output. https://gist.github.com/3838467

TextMate's Twilight version would be nice too.

Fail to import this file from the default Custom.css file.

i've change a little code to solve some color problem

@bspingarn

Beautiful theme, but wish there was a version which also themed JS files in the sources pane.

@sideshowbarker

Made a fork that prevents your cursor from disappearing when you're editing HTML:

#elements-content .editing,
#elements-content .editing *,
#elements-content .child-editing {
background-color: white !important;
color: black !important;
display: block;
}

@Cmaury
Cmaury commented Mar 5, 2013

Amazing. Much easier on my eyes. Is there anyway to change the font color for text input in the console? It's still black, and I can't seem to find the right class to modify.

Thanks for posting this.

@HumanBlade

@Cmaury #console-view { color: white;} at bottom of other declarations. don't forget to comment your code for change :)

@JangoSteve

@sideshowbarker Had the same problem! Slightly changed your styles though as display: block was throwing the format off in edit mode, e.g. editing the class of an HTML element looked like this:

class
=
"
large-3 columns
"

So I changed it to inline-block:

#elements-content .editing,
#elements-content .editing *,
#elements-content .child-editing {
  background-color: white !important;
  color: black !important;
  display: inline-block;
}
@edwardbeckett

@bentruyman @JangoSteve @sideshowbarker

Awesome work ... I'm not so keen on the brash 'white' background editing color ... I think it's a bit ...sledge-hammer ... here's my 2¢

    #elements-content .editing
  , #elements-content .editing *
  , #elements-content .child-editing  {
        background-color: #171717  !important;
        font-weight: bold;
        color: white !important;
        display: inline-block;
  };

seems not working in Chrome 33.0.1750.146 m?

@rickyn-gannett

+1 on not working. Did google remove support for this I wonder?
Version 33.0.1750.152

@rickyn-gannett

It seems support was dropped for this: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=318566

However devtools theme support seems to be a work in progress in the form of an extension. I was able to get it to work by doing the following:

  1. Enable Developer Tools Experiments. Navigate to chrome://flags, search for #enable-devtools-experiments and click the enable link. Now restart Chrome.
  2. In devtools click the settings gear, then Experiments in the left pane, then "Allow custom UI themes" in the right pane.
  3. Create an extension. I did that with https://github.com/zenorocha/generator-devtools-theme. It will generate the base files you need. Then add the gist above to style.css and save it.
  4. Click on the Tools -> Extensions menu within chrome and check the developer mode checkbox. Then click the "Load unpacked extension" button and navigate to the extension you made in step 2.

Its a whole lot more work and very kludgy but at this point it should work. At least it did for me: http://take.ms/4ZJOf
