Hi René,

I personally prefer a brighter variant of an UI. I am fine with the default UI theme.

Kind Regards,
Thomas

it would nice to have also dark theme also. Not all we have young fresh eyes ... Dark theme in different services and IDE's is nowadays more popular than ever.

You can check how I added a bright/dark theme switcher to a Solarized theme (published in community repo by Mimugmail)


My 5 cents here:
- every theme should detect the theming preference of the OS
- every theme should have bright/dark variants and have a simple switching mechanism


Solarized theme is using couple of tricks (jquery injections and css variables) but it is better than any OS-ignorant and static (single-mode) theme.


(why do I care? I work in a glass sunroom; the daylight is crazy-bright, the night is... very dark. I prefer all my apps and web sites to honor my OS theme switching at the evening and morning)

Rebellion is the best for my eyes by far. Just have glithes after update sometimes...

I am a graphic designer. I've been designing website templates, brochures, advertisements, posters, etc., for quite some time. I have noticed that finding the right template can be extremely difficult. You often get caught up in your own graphics software and forget about the power of the internet to help you with your designs. Hundreds, maybe thousands of websites let you download their templates, but I would advise against it for one main reason: they're not free! Instead, I found a platform for free newsletter templates, google docs. (https://docsandslides.com/googledocs/missing/)
