[WIP] Theme-able CSS Variables #1377

I thought we ought to have a place where we keep a note of the current CSS Variables and also propose different variables that should be included.

Currently included:

Variable Description Default
--theme-background Background color of the main body #f9f9fa
--theme-top-bar-background Background color of the top bar #fdf9f3

Pull request pending:

Variable Description Default
--theme-top-bar-color Text and icon color for the top bar #0a0a0a
--theme-top-bar-search-background Background color of the search box in the top bar #e8e7e7
--theme-top-bar-search-color Text color for the search box, and its placeholder, in the top bar #0a0a0a

Proposed:

Variable Description Default
--theme-color Text color for the main body #0a0a0a
--theme-container-background Background color of the articles and nav-elements #ffffff
--theme-container-color Text color for the articles and nav-elements #0a0a0a

I think the best thing to do is leave a comment below of further proposals and I will update the main post.

Also feel free to do pull requests to help roll these out.

 

Thanks for sharing, I will take a look :)
