Simple console commands to add a bootswatch theme switcher to top of page
// I switched a basic bootstrap template site over to using bootswatch,
// but I wanted to swap the themes on it so i could see some of the colors and
// font sizes as i still had some items from the old theme in there.
// There are probably lots of ways to do this, but this is how I did it
// Go to https://www.bootstrapcdn.com/bootswatch and then you can run this on the
// page with all of the cdn links to copy and use with hashes, etc
//var vals = [...document.querySelectorAll('input[id*="html_"]')].map(x => [x.id.replace('html_', ''), x.value]).reduce(
// (acc, val) => (acc[val[0]] = val[1], acc), {}
//);
//console.log(JSON.stringify(vals))
//the above will give you the values to copy/paste below for the theme list,
// ,but note i have added 'media="none"' to the end of each link. you can add
// that to the code above, i simply did a search and replace as this media
// swapping was a later revision.
// start copying below this line
