What is Roam?
Roam is a tool that lets you effortlessly capture, remix and rediscover ideas; a second brain for your brain, if you will.
Here's two great introductions to it:

Onto the themes
Mono comes with several styles. See below for how to set them up.
Step 1: Create a new page for your CSS
You can do this by creating a new [[roam/css]] page in Roam. This is where your styles sit.
Step 2: Create a block for the Mono theme
Step 3: Create a code block under the theme
Step 4: Change the code block's type to CSS
Step 4: Paste the theme's CSS into the code block
You can copy Mono's CSS from the link below. Once you paste the CSS, Roam will update to reflect the new theme.

Step 5: Pick a style from the themeset
You can change styles by coping over the current style at the top from one of the several styles in the CSS.
Step 6: ...and that's it. You're done 🎉
