Matlab (dark) theme changer

Matlab Online can change the color theme of the Matlab IDE. The traditional Matlab Desktop installed on the computer is planned to have factory color theme changing in the nearer future.

In the meantime, it is possible to manually or programatically change the color theme of the Matlab Desktop IDE. Not all UI colors can be changed. In particular the buttons, borders, line numbers, data manipulation and analysis UI remain with the factory colors.

The Matlab schemer_import utility can change background and text colors in most portions of the Matlab Desktop IDE. To first preserve / export a custom color theme, consider schemer_export to export existing scheme before importing a theme.
