The primary reason why Visual Studio Code is so popular is that you can customize it in any way you like. You can use custom fonts, themes, icon packs, etc. and there are tons of plugins available for it too. Here is a list of the best visual studio code themes for developers to use.

All developers are very specific about the look and feel of their systems. Every programmers’ dream is to have a nice background wallpaper (4k Minimal Desktop Wallpapers), a good theme for IDE, a pretty monospace font & music that helps in concentrating.

Using swaggy themes won’t make you a better programmer.
