A request for dark mode

This is a great forum for everything framework; however, I’m a bit of a night owl/dark mode guy.
So, I’d like to humbly request an option to view the forum in dark mode? If the Framework mods/gods would allow it of course :smile:

(There’s also a chance I just can’t find the right setting in preferences)

I think you can do this with your browser.

Which browser are you using?

The majority of the time I’m on Firefox. But, whenever I mess with the theme/colors in Firefox, I inevitably find a website where it appears there is no text, but it turns out that the color shift has led to the background being the same color as the text.

Oh that’s not helpful! :smiley:
In my case an addon in Firefox works perfectly.

It’s called dark-background-light-text of Mikhail Khvoinitsky…

But please still add it.
For Safari, Edge, IE (even though it would crash the browser lol), and Chrome by itself though too.

I use Chrome and I would also like dark mode, because I have the first world problem of being blinded by the HDR display I use for my main monitor.

If dark mode is not possible, making the background same color of the aluminum chassis of the laptop would also be fine with me. and have the added benefit of branding.

Was about to publish a post for that but I see some users had already suggested the idea: yes, we need a native Dark mode for the forum or I’ll be blind in two weeks :confused:

So Discobot told me during my advanced features tutorial and leveling up trust levels that in my preferences that I could potentially select between a light and dark mode.

I went to preferences however and did not find anything related to it. Maybe that means they thought that they would have it or tried to have it and it didn’t work correctly. I’m sure that it is coming though. It’s an obvious must now-a-days. I guess we will see.

There is a built-in dark mode that can be toggled in Discourse, so it should be a matter of toggling a switch somewhere in the backend. That’s why discobot thinks you’ll be able to toggle dark mode but you can’t find it.

Another vote for amoled black mode.

I use the dark reader extension and does the job well.
