Night time color scheme

Hello,
I've been using WinSCP for a bit now however, the only thing missing for me is a dark theme for us nighttime keyboard bangers.

Most dev/support apps now support some form of dark theme for those of us that find the blaring white hard on the eyes at 3am (Even Chrome's inspector has a nighttime option).

I'm not requesting a total theme extension, just a secondary primary option that sets the entire interface to a dark theme (unfortunately the current view > color option is just too simple).

I'd be happy to volunteer to convert any gui graphics to a dark theme version if that would help.

Just for reference, I'm referring to something like (google images: "chrome dark theme"):

Cheers,
Oliver.

Re: Night time color scheme

Cannot you just set Windows theme to dark? WinSCP would follow that.

In case you're referring to the Windows 10 theme selection, that one does not target classic/Desktop programs, only the 'modern' stuff.
MS has restricted the uxtheme.dll so without hacking it (which brings additional problems), Desktop theming is limited.
Additionally, a dark theme will not be desired (or will sometimes look fugly) for all applications.

As far as making it easier on the eyes at night, consider using a software like f.lux which reduces the blueish component of the display color during nighttime. Note the Windows 10 has such a night mode, too.
