Dark theme for web UI

Hi guys,
I made a white-on-black theme for the syncthing UI (screenshot attached), for use with the stylish add-on. The theme is available on userstyles.org.
I hope someone can find it useful or send suggestions to improve it.


Looks great, we should really add better theme support.

Yes, it’s great indeed! Nevertheless I would avoid absolutely black background preferring dark gray one. Then it can be default official theme :slight_smile:

Using it now. Great theme. I feel happier on the dark side…

Bravo. Well done.

Excellent. I am a great fan of dark themes. Installed it and it looks great! Thank you very much. I had been wanting something like this but am not familiar enough with css to create it myself.

You can easily edit the theme (your stylish add-on gives you the option of editing all your styles) - there is a dark background color at the top of the theme. You can experiment replacing that with “grey” or a hex number that corresponds to a color you like. You can find the number corresponding to a color for example here: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=color+picker+hex&t=ffnt&ia=colorpicker.

Just don’t want to make a browser depending on additional extension.

So this is now part of Syncthing. One thing I’ve noticed wasn’t styled, was the tooltips when you hover on failed discovery servers for example.

What does that mean? We’ll see theme choices in the next update?


Here is a slight improvement for this Theme. (Increased Brightness for Background and Borders)

Complete Black Background is imho a little bit too dark… :smiley:

@fti7, I share your feeling absolutely! :slightly_smiling:

I’ll adopt the changes, once the bikeshedding has converged. :wink:

(Or in a day or two)

Well, if it were put to a vote, I like the dark one. The new one looks sun-bleached.

I’m glad my theme was appreciated and is now built into Syncthing :slight_smile:
I personally prefer the full dark background, but of course anyone can make his own variations.

I would prefer the darker one as well. The slightly lighter one just feels “faded”.

There is a ticket for that:

I meant they are unstyled in the dark theme
