Default Theme Enjoyers Thread

I’ve personally looked at and tried the various other custom themes the community provides (they’re great to be sure), but none of them just felt “right” like the default theme to me.

For any little “problem” areas of the theme, I just create/request small css snippets to make adjustments as needed.


Who else here really likes the Default Theme?

I do. Mostly because I don’t have to wait for bug fixes when Obsidian has new updates. And I like how clearly separated and contrasted the elements are in the default theme.

same here. I made a css snippet to colorize headers and lists based on endentation level and that’s all I need from a theme :slight_smile:

@chrsle Do you mind sharing the snippet? That would be very helpful.

Thanks!

@I-d-as With pleasure! And a warning / request: I don’t know how to code and have hacked this together with trial and error. if you find an elegant way to make this CSS prettier, please kindly let me know :grinning:
