Sigrid wrote a guide to OS wide themeing in , I haven't tried it yet but it's brilliant, creating /dev/theme to serve colors to any application that want to support it.

@neauoire if you can make it look like Mac OS 7.6 I’ll switch

@Wiley Why 7.6? System 7 was much nicer before the 7.5 patch

@neauoire were there UI changes in 7.5? I think I just ended up using 7.6.1 for a long time and that's the version in my head when I think of 7.

@Wiley yeah they added a couple of things, the finder looks a bit different, and there was this quick access taskbar thing. I'm more of a 7.1 fan

I wouldn't make plan9 look like 7.1, I would rather just straight up use system 7 instead.

@neauoire I would definitely run it in 1 bit mode regardless

@neauoire I’ll switch to it, her theme ecosystem is nice! I just need to hack a wallpaper thingy :}

@royniang that's the easy part :) Make backups, I totally corrupted my install trying to setup the theme thing haha..

@neauoire That rocks. I had been trying to modify rio and applications to compile against a shared theme.h, but this is way cooler.
