The possibility of adding user made color themes

Currently there are five amazing color themes that users can choose from. I was wondering if we could have a feature that let's users configure their custom color themes and have a way to share it publicly so that other users can use it as well, sort of like an extension. It definitely isn't a must have feature, but seems like a fun feature that users can play around with and a way for organizations to create brand specific themes.

Yes, absolutely. The ability to make Forems more distinct is necessary to provide character to the ecosystem.

There are difficulties with how much freedom we can/want to provide while also allowing the system to continuously evolve.

We have one core style option with the main brand color which affects links/etc. In order to provide more distinction it's probably a matter of baby steps to add to the customization interface. It would be good to ship this soon to give folks something new they can see.

Yeah, definitely. More and more communities using Forem will lead to a situation with several instances looking alike. Setting up a more nuanced customization interface to change style themes and the like will be a huge feature for more communities adopting Forem.
