Dark themes for viewing source?

Anonymous created an issue

Hi, apologies if this has been addressed before, but I couldn't find a relevant report. A while ago you had several themes for displaying source code. I believe they were based on Pygments. Now, all of those are gone.

How can I get them back?

Thanks!

    Hi,

    I am afraid that we removed the ability to set the dark theme a few months ago.

    We have been striving to refresh our UI/UX over the last year. We know that we still have a long way to go but in the process of initially cleaning things up we decided that we needed to control the consistency of how the UI is presented across repositories. We found that the different themes made the cross-repo viewing on the site too inconsistent for what we were after.

    I am sorry if you preferred the dark theme and if this has caused you any inconvenience. I hope you understand our rational for removing this feature.

    Cheers,

    Dylan

    greasemonkey is a greasy bandaid that doesn't fix the real problem. It would be a lot simpler to grant me a user preference (if you want, per user, not for everyone else reading the source code) to read code in whatever Pygments scheme that is already available without me having to rip out the Pygments CSS and maintain a separate version of the greasemonkey script, which will sooner or later break whenever you guys change the HTML.

    If you guys distributed source, I would be very happy to help you implement this user preference.

    It's not so much a preference as a darker theme is just healthier for your eyes. With all the work we do with computers and the use of a bright UI you open yourself up for cataracts. I think a lot of us would like to see a dark theme back in sourcetree.
