ProtonMail Themes

Since v1.16, the encrypted mail service allows the use of themes with Cascading Style Sheets. You can pick a theme from the Themes folder or create a custom one yourself using CSS. Feel free to use the theme template provided as a starting point.

These themes were developed for v4.0.x of ProtonMail. Themes for v3.0.x can be used by downloading the v3.15.30 release.

Quick setup guide

Required for theme creation only

Install NodeJS, after forking/cloning this repository install dependencies:

cd protonmail-themes
# Requires Node v15.2.1, run `nvm use` to set the correct version. 
npm install

Themes can be created by duplicating and renaming the example theme folder and its .scss file to the theme name. Then edit that file by changing the color variables. You can also extend the theme by editing the _styles.css partial or by creating a custom one.

Two commands are available to compile themes:

*// Compiles themes as changes are made.*
npm run watch

*// Compiles all themes.*
npm run build

Frequently Asked Questions

Do these themes compromise security?

In short, no. All themes listed here will always style existing elements from ProtonMail's UI and not import any third party files from anywhere. At the time I created these themes I've received a few directions from ProtonMail's co-founder Jason Stockman in order to avoid breaking layout and security issues.

Why is Stylus required to use custom themes?

Support for custom themes in ProtonMail's appearance settings seems to have been temporarily disabled in ~v4.0.0 beta 33.

To use custom themes an alternative needs to be used to load the stylesheet. Stylus has been recommended but any other alternative should work.

Where can I find more themes?
