I use RStudio every day at work. And every day my eyes say thank you to the developers for implementing themes support for the editor, and more recently a complete dark skin for the GUI. Dark themes are not only important for your health and the health of the planet. They are also absolutely essential to look cool in the office and make your colleagues believe you’re working on very complicated projects. ?

However, one little thing could dispel the illusion in a second: an ugly, flashy graphic with a white background in your plot pane.

To solve this serious issue of my daily life I wrote editheme, a tiny package providing color palettes and functions to create graphics matching the RStudio editor. The following animated screenshot is worth a thousand words.
