I am still having this idea that there could be a dark theme. It doesn't have to be a completely different design like futurico. For example, a first straight forward approximation could be to just invert the brightness of all colors. (I have just inverted RGB and rotated the hue afterwards):
What do you think? Is this easy to accomplish? A better variant would also make sure gradient orientations are maintained (e.g. if going from lighter to darker top to bottom, it should remain that way)
Its not as easy to do as it seems to be and it will be a waste of time to make it right now when WebLaF is not yet ready for such modifications. I will be adding dark theme as soon as StyleManager is done and released.
With StyleManager i will be able to create custom theme within day or two, so dark theme will be first released as an example of StyleManager usage.
Cool! Just wanted to know if this is somewhere on the radar! Keep up the great work.
Your screenshot above looks quite good in my opinion. How did you do that? I tried the same thing - inverting the colors I found by calling LookAndFeel.getDefaults(), but it didn't work. Presumably because that's not the correct place to set them for WebLaf.
Just Photoshop/Gimp. It's inverting RGB and then rotating hue 180 degrees, so blues stay blue etc. It's not perfect, just an approximation of how I imagine it could work.
