Dark Space ([phw_darkSpace]), a dark admin theme for TXP 4.7

I had this in a nearly forgotten corner; someone may like this. Dark brooding colours. It is a bit experimental, playing with CSS Custom properties (aka CSS variables). Some rough edges possible, hence the beta status.
It is otherwise quite similar to the Sandpace admin theme.

Supported browsers: Need support for CSS custom properties – Safari, Mobile Safari, Firefox, Chrome and derivatives (Opera, etc) latest 2 version and possibly older, Edge 16+. note IE 11 is not supported.

>> Download v1.0beta.

Nice concept; like the screenshots, thanks. Can’t install it alongside Sandspace though because:

Fatal error: Cannot declare class phw_sandspace_theme, because the name is already in use

You might want to change the class name so it plays with its brother nicely ;)

Lovely, thanks. Perfect for those late-night Txp sessions.

Re: Dark Space ([phw_darkSpace]), a dark admin theme for TXP 4.7

Destry, as you mentioned in other threads that you have an older MBP, a question. How well does this theme do on your (maybe slightly worn-out) monitor? Is the contrast between the various level of dark-grey enough? It is more a question of perception.

And I can only test on recent display-P3 screens on the iMac/MBP13-2017 and iPad latest generations. On the cheap Windows laptop I have it doesn’t look great, but nothing looks good on that screen.

Looks good to me, even with my fading eyes. I also keep my screen brightness way down most of the time, and even there it looks fine.

I’ll be using it for the more short-form pieces. But the scrolling body field isn’t terrible, in fact. ;)
