Proxmox and Proxmox Backup Server Dark Mode Theme

Proxmox and Proxmox Backup Server Dark Mode Theme

Want a dark mode for Proxmox and Proxmox Backup Server? Here's how you do it with one, simple command line script! 🖤

If you use Proxmox as your hypervisor of choice like I do, then you know the bright white theme can take a toll on your eyes if you spend a lot of time with Proxmox. However, today I am here to tell you there is a solution!

It's no secret PVEDiskordDark has been around for quite some time. In-fact, I made a video about it on Youtube nearly two years ago.

You can watch the video above which is still accurate today or simply try it yourself by using the scripts below for both Proxmox and Proxmox Backup Server.

Proxmox Dark Mode Theme

Using the following script in Proxmox shell to change the theme to dark.

Final Notes and Thoughts

Beggars can't be choosers right? For years, people have been asking for a default Proxmox dark theme and have been given the silent treatment. Proxmox is arguably the best hypervisor available free of charge unless you need enterprise options. So I won't complain if it does not have an official built in dark mode!
