How to set RStudio Server theme from the terminal?

rstudio
rstudioserver

At my company, we set up RStudio Server sessions in docker containers. The container images are set up with default packages and settings from the terminal when the container is started. One setting that I'm trying to figure out is changing the default UI theme used by RStudio Server. The current default theme "Textmate" is buggy for us and doesn't display highlighting when selecting text. Anyone know how to do this?

There isn't a simple way to set themes by default -- unfortunately, many of RStudio's UI preferences are currently not easy to edit manually outside of the IDE, but we do hope to change that in the future.
