multiple Themeswitch in Svelte with Tailwind

You need a running svelte app with tailwind.

Create a new component components/themeSwitch.svelte

<script>
    // define themes
    const themes = ['theme-dark', 'theme-light'];

    // loox in localstorage for a theme & set it as body attribute
    if (localStorage.getItem('data-theme')) {
        document.body.setAttribute('data-theme', localStorage.getItem('data-theme'));
    }

    // set first theme as default theme (if no :root{})
    else {
        document.body.setAttribute('data-theme', themes[0]);
    }

    // get currentTheme from body, step to the next theme & set this in licalStorage & body
    function toggleTheme() {
        let currentTheme = document.body.getAttribute('data-theme');
        let themeIndex = themes.indexOf(currentTheme) + 1;
        if (themeIndex === themes.length) themeIndex = 0;
        localStorage.setItem('data-theme', themes[themeIndex]);
        document.body.setAttribute('data-theme', themes[themeIndex]);
    }
</script>

<button on:click={toggleTheme}>

Add Theme colors to .app.css or ./custom.css:

@tailwind base;
@tailwind components;
@tailwind utilities;


[data-theme="theme-light"] {
    --text-prim: #6c757d;
    --text-seco: #007bff;
    --text-tert: #17a2b8;
    --bg-prim: #F8F9FA;
    --bg-seco: #F7F7F9;
    --bg-tert: #EFEFEF;
    --border-prim: #777777;
    --border-seco: #dddddf;
    --border-tert: #c9c9cc;
    --success: #007E33;
    --info: #0099CC;
    --warn: #FF8800;
    --error: #CC0000;
}

[data-theme="theme-dark"] {
    --text-prim: #d7d7d8;
    --text-seco: #2798e4;
    --text-tert: #988cca;
    --bg-prim: #232327;

    --info: #c9ac57;
    --warn: #cb7832;

Set these vars to your tailwind.config.js

const colors = require('tailwindcss/colors')

module.exports = {
    content: ['./src/**/*.{svelte,js,ts}'],
    theme: {

        backgroundColor: {
            "prim": "var(--bg-prim)",
            "seco": "var(--bg-seco)",
            "tert": "var(--bg-tert)",
            "info": "var(--info)",
            "warn": "var(--warn)",
            "error": "var(--error)",
            ...colors
        },
        textColor: {
            "prim": "var(--text-prim)",
            "seco": "var(--text-seco)",
            "tert": "var(--text-tert)",
            "success": "var(--success)",
            "info": "var(--info)",
            "warn": "var(--warn)",
            "error": "var(--error)",
            ...colors
        },
        borderColor: {
            "prim": "var(--border-prim)",
            "seco": "var(--border-seco)",
            "tert": "var(--border-tert)",
            ...colors

        },
        extend: {

        },
