Official DarkMode

Why is this still not considered? DiscordDark forces me to trust a third entity and it has to be installed after every pve update. Alternative is DarkReader, but it has some flaws, i.e. it is not available everywhere.

My secret hope is also, that a dark theme comes at the latest with PVE 8 (and optimally the other products, as well as the forum).

But not seeing it on the roadmaps: [1], nor seeing any activity on the ticket: [2], as well as no further response from the Proxmox-Staff/-Developers in the forum, especially this thread, lets slowly fade my hopes... :(

Maybe it is supposed to be a surprise for PVE 8? :D

However: It should also be clear, that implementing/adding other (enterprise-)features, that have an actual selling point, is logically much higher on the priority list.

I came up with a solution that won't require you touch your files on your server ever when building a client that takes care of styling using nativefier ( (CONS: You still have to trust nativefier, but no potentially shady stuff on your server, although you cannot use proxmox in the browser, so you have to authenticate manually):

Save this image as proxmox.png:

save this content as proxmox.js:

(async function () {
  const r = await fetch(
  const s = document.createElement("style");
  s.innerHTML = await r.text();

run this command:

nativefier -i "proxmox.png" --inject "proxmox.js" --background-color '#23272a' --overwrite

Any idea why there is still no official dark mode for Proxmox products in 2023? I don't want to be disrespectful, it's a fantastic product for which I am very thankful. But the only application that is more blinding to my eyes (which have severely suffered from decades of IT) is the detonation of a hydrogen bomb.
