I discovered a quick way to turn a web page to a dark theme with two CSS properties:
 
body.dark {
    background-color: black;
    filter: invert(1) hue-rotate(180deg);
}
 

You can then add some javascript and add an event listener to a button that will toggle the class dark to the body tag to switch the dark mode on/off.

In the example below, it adds in a toggle switch using the FontAwesome library, adds in the theme selection to the browser local storage and will read from the local storage when it is run so it will keep the user preference on which theme they last had:

SET PAGE-NUM=OFF
TABLE FILE ibisamp/car
SUM DEALER_COST/D12M
    RETAIL_COST/D12M
    COMPUTE MARGIN/D12.2% = (RETAIL_COST - DEALER_COST) / DEALER_COST * 100 ;
BY COUNTRY
BY CAR
BY MODEL
ON TABLE HOLD FORMAT HTMTABLE
ON TABLE RECOMPUTE
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
INCLUDE=IBFS:/FILE/IBI_HTML_DIR/ibi_themes/flat.sty,$
TYPE=TITLE, BACKCOLOR=RED, COLOR=WHITE,$
ENDSTYLE
END

I should add that it only works on modern browsers (RIP IE)

Nice. I spent about a month adding the ability to toggle between a dark and light theme on all our portals. I did it quite a bit differently. Your's is probably easier, but I really like my approach too. I have much more control as to the colours that are used and I can use more than two themes.

Basically I created a new portal where users can select a dark or light theme via a drop down (I used a drop down in case we want to add a third colour theme). The user's selection is saved to a table in the data warehouse. Then each fex runs some code to read that table (via an -INCLUDE) and then set one of two sets of variables. For example if dark is chosen, then we include dark.sty which sets &BACKCOL1 = '#112233'. If light is chosen then light.sty is used which sets &BACKCOL01 = '#FFFFFF'. And then it was just modifying the stylesheet used by our tables and chart fexes to use &BACKCOL01 instead of the hard coded colour that was there before.

Really fun exercise. And I got the chance to really let those creative juices flow. It took long to do only because I had to modify and test each and every dashboard (we have about 13). And each of those are made up by 5-40 fexes. The logic is pretty simple though:
1) Read a file
2) Set one of two sets of variables (light.sty or dark.sty). The variables in each of these are the same, but their values are different.
3) Include the stylesheet that uses the vars from step 2
