Photophobia: Please release a dark theme for us.

The message that Paper Lantern is being discontinued has shown up in my WHM/CPanel. i changed everything over to Jupiter and found I no longer have the option of using the Dark theme I was using on the CPanel for the various websites I host for myself, friends, and family. I suffer from photophobia. This doesn't mean I'm afraid of light, but I have a sensitivity to light. My visual light sensitivity can cause headaches which can easily develop into severe migraines.

If you must update CPanel, please provide alternatives to the blinding themes such as Jupiter. Provide at least one dark and one light theme with any new releases. I thought I might be able to edit the CSS to make it similar to the Dark theme where colors are concerned, but unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with things like the back end of CPanel, Linux, and Centos 7.9 to do so safely.

Please release a darker theme for those of us with health issues for which Jupiter is unsuitable.

Thank you.

Hey there! We're discussing a dark theme for sure, but it hasn't been decided if it will happen just yet. Any major updates will get posted in the large thread about the changes here:

I just tried Jupiter on a test account and oh my god this is awful. 8 months later, why isn't there a dark Jupiter theme? This feels like a major step backwards to me and I'm not upgrading to 108.0 until there is a dark Jupiter theme that's for sure.

meanwhile take a look to this extension to create Dark Mode in browsers. It is available for Chrome and Firefox:

also red fruits like blueberries, blackberries, strawberry and also carrots helps to protect the eyes.:cool:
