    There's an incomplete version of a system-wide dark theme at /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemAppearance.bundle/Contents/Resources/ . To enable, boot into Restore mode, disable SIP, reboot, navigate to the above path, back up the bundle, and in the original, delete "SystemAppearance.car" and rename "DarkAppearance.car" to "SystemAppearance.car". Relaunch an app to see if in action, or reboot to see system-wide.

    The .car files can be edited using Alex Zielenki's ThemeEngine — https://github.com/alexzielenski/ThemeEngine

    Now, if an enterprising individual here, in his or her free time, could figure out how to change the fileview and sidebar background, invert or recolor the toolbar glyphs, and change the titlebar text color...

      this was done in el capitan?

      essentially this is what flavours did isn't it?

        Unsure as to whether or not Flavours replaced the files or not, but it did use the same format. It also replaced app-specific resources and changed additional text colors.

        It didn't, however, fix glyph colors...
