I have been trying different editors, but I always find that they are lacking some of the traditional code editors' features.

The only one I have found that could fit the requirements of being dark themed and having autocomplete was Atom with the respective packages, but the result didn't feel good.

Is there any dark themed editor with autocomplete function for Windows that you find works ok?


TexStudio with a dark theme works great. Here is another thread where how to set TexStudio with a dark themed like Scholarized can be performed:



You could use Microsoft Visual Studio Code with a LaTeX plugin

LaTex plugins: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/search?term=latex&target=VSCode&category=All%20categories&sortBy=Relevance

Or more specifically this plugin: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=James-Yu.latex-workshop

and for themes you can choose from a plethora of dark themes: For example OneDark https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=akamud.vscode-theme-onedark

  • But wouldn't that be just the same as using Atom with extra steps? – Daniel Díez Jun 9 '18 at 16:38
  • @DanielDíez I am sorry I haven't used Atom, except once or twice for a few minutes, so I can't comment on that. You can give it a try with VS Code, it might work for you better than Atom :) – Sonamor Jun 9 '18 at 17:50
