If you use more than one color scheme in Sublime Text, for example Solarized (Light) during the day and Solarized (Dark) at night, here’s a simple plugin to make switching between them as painless as possible. Instead of having to click and hover through Sublime Text > Preferences > Color Scheme > Color Scheme - Default > {your_color_scheme}, you can simply bind some keys to cycle through a series of color schemes of your choice.

First, create a file called cycle_color_scheme.py, and put it in Packages/User. Here’s mine:

import sublime, sublime_plugin

class CycleColorSchemeCommand(sublime_plugin.TextCommand):
    def run(self, edit, **kwargs):

        preferences = sublime.load_settings('Preferences.sublime-settings')
        scheme = self.view.settings().get("color_scheme")

            schemes = kwargs.get("color_schemes")
            i = schemes.index(scheme)
                'color_scheme', schemes[ (i+1) % len(schemes) ])
        except ValueError:
            print("Your current color scheme doesn't match any of your args.")
        except Exception:
            print("Something went wrong.")

Then, add the following to your Default (OSX).sublime-keymap, also in the Packages/User directory. Put your favorite color schemes in the color_schmes list. These need to be entered as relative paths to color scheme files: {color_scheme}.tmTheme.

    // ...
    "keys": ["super+shift+c"], "command": "cycle_color_scheme",
    "args": { "color_schemes": [
        "Packages/User/SublimeLinter/Solarized (Light) (SL).tmTheme",
        "Packages/User/SublimeLinter/Solarized (Dark) (SL).tmTheme",
        "Packages/User/SublimeLinter/Monokai (SL).tmTheme"

    // ...

If you use SublimeLinter, any color scheme you use will get copied into Packages/User/SublimeLinter, and you’re set. If not, you can use something like Colorsublime to download themes, and put them somewhere in Packages/User.
