  • Revert "Dark Theme (#281)" (#282) This reverts commit 24587a568322a6093f5ba28ce0bfcbe2cb93da06.

  • Dark Theme (#281) * Add a setting for dark theme (setting ONLY, no actual theme). * Create a dark theme for the app. This theme is CSS-based. It is activated by adding an attribute to the <body> tag: `data-theme="dark"`. The definitions for this theme are in vars.css. All color references in the app are replaced with CSS variables that target the current theme. Bulma style variables are also overridden to comply with the theme. * Connect the dark theme settings with the dark theme CSS * Add dark map tiles for the dark theme * Fix formatting warnings from houndci-bot * Remove explicit white background from q-mark.svg * Use actual sunrise and sunset times for automatic dark mode

The RPI Elections dashboard for GM Week and Freshman Elections.

  • Some Updates based on GM Week 2019 (#107) * Add node SESSION_SECRET to config.js * Display Graduate Nominator Status The entry/exit date does not matter for grads * Remove candidate admin rights This overrides the CMS API call for candidates who happen to be members of the EC and WTG on CMS. Once somebody is added to the website they give up their admin rights until they are removed as a candidate. One thing to note is that I use a synchronous MySQL library instead of the default async one.
