Welcome Page

I’m looking to customise the welcome page.
The only reference I see is in https://github.com/eclipse-theia/theia/blob/3d17ad24b1337317b5f84c5b65006a81181b2776/packages/core/src/browser/common-frontend-contribution.ts where styles are being set.

Is there a way to provide custom markdown/html as a welcome page.
