    It would be fantastic if a functional equivalent to the Visual Studio Theme Editor could be provided, but I would settle for a Solarized Dark theme.

    @Visual Studio Team
    Do you support the darktheme by MacOSx mojave?

    cause i read that all Developers need to implement the new Feature :D

    Feedback: The applications will look and operate a bit different per platform, that's ok. I just want to see the same syntax highlighting colors between the 2 when moving back and forth. Easier on the brain. Oh, and please use the Windows colors if you do, NOT the Mac colors.

    It's nice to have the dark theme (thanks!), but it would also be nice if there was some parity between VS for Mac, VS Code, and VS for Windows. They all 3 have different dark themes. Any thoughts on addressing this for consistency across all platforms?

    It really looks nothing like the windows version. For example the color scheme of the interface uses a mix of blue-ish gray and light gray, which IMO doesn't go well together with the dark text editor theme.

    It looks nothing like Visual Studio 2017 or even 2013 or 2015. It's a Xamarin Studio clone.

    I really hope MS gives Visual Studio for Mac it's own soul rather than reaping it from Xamarin Studio
