I was playing around with the swc-uxp-react-starter on Github – is there no way at the moment to get the swc-react components to be theme-aware? All the guides have setting the theme in the app? I tried overriding the css using the var(--uxp-host-text-color) but I couldn’t get that to work and seems counter-intuitive?
Sorry if this is a silly question, I’m from a non-coding background
I couldn’t find any way to access theme-aware on SWC.
but SWC has theme wrapper so instead of it, I use my own custom hook and register the event which detects brightness change through batchPlay on Photoshop.
then theme variable will be changed on theme wrapper.
This is probably the intended behavior in this case. It is better by design for the developer to be able to change the theme when he/she intends to, rather than have the developer automatically conquered by the theme.
I can’t figure out if its a bug or intended behavior…
I often get the same impression about the this part, and have recently made that opinion to Adobe via survey. It would be nice to clearly state whether it is a bug or intended behavior, can or cannot, to be or not to be, and so on.
Makes sense letting the developer have control, but surely there should be the option to defer to the host-application also? I would have thought a plugin UI that doesn’t match the host-theme would be a major user-experience fail…
