Edit ui-variables without forking theme


Is it possible to edit ui-variables for the theme, without having to fork it? We can edit styles.less to edit the theme, but as far as I can tell, we can’t reassign ui-variables, which would make certain changes far far easier to achieve (eg, tab size).

Less has this functionality by default. Reassigning variables changes them, even in different import scopes. But it appears style.less is loaded post theme compilation. Possible any other way?

If not, feature request?


I also looking for this feature.


I saw an Issue on atom/atom yesterday where one of the Atom folks mentioned that they would like to have this also. I can’t find it right now, though.
