Works great and fast. Except... it doesn't reuse the color palette of the github page. This is a problem for me because I'm using Dark Reader with the dynamic bright filter for getting a somewhat recycled newspaper warm look and feel. Is it possible to reuse the colors so that it won't look that awkward? Thanks!
