It is a real pleasure to code in F# 3.1 (2013) with F# Depth Colorizer!

F# Depth Colorizer for Visual Studio 2013 has been developed by Karlkim Suwanmongkol (based on Brian McNamara's code) and can be downloaded from:

or GitHub: https://github.com/kimsk/FSharpDepthColorizer

Brian and Karlkim, thank you very much for your efforts!

How do I adjust the color of the bands? Is that an option in the Fonts and Colors?
Like it so far

Very nice.

But I found, with a Dark theme I needed to: have the even numbered depths be the darker ones (avoids blank lines between functions be lighter), and expand the contrast between light and dark (subtracted 10 from each element of the darker levels, added 20 to each of the lighter).

But overall: makes the structure of my code far easier to see.

    • Hi Alex and Don,
         A reader of my blog lets me know that 2013 version that I have doesn't support dark theme. The easiest way is to change colors in registry. You can download the dark-FSharpDepthColorizer.reg from the same place if you perfer working with the dark theme.
      
      I put more detail on my blog here, http://cyanbyfuchsia.wordpress.com/2013/11/18/cool-visual-studio-extensions-for-f-developer/.
      
      Hope this helps!

    • GREAT JOB!
      Would it be hard to use it for other languages, like javascript or c#? Any plans for that?
