I use Chrome on my mobile, this website is still very white. Any hint on how can I get it dark mode? Is it even possible with chrome or are there better choices?
A quick search gives this:
So not only is it possible to make multiple color themes, but even an automatic switcher depending on system. But MP would need to do it.
I’m ashamed to say I forgot MP handle to tag him these conversation maybe somebody can raise this to his attention with a mention?
I was also bothered by the lack of this feature. I solved it by installing the Dark Reader add on (for Firefox). Works pretty well for most sites I’ve encountered.
I think if we ask @_MP nicely, it’s possible to install this plugin.
Yes, @_MP it would be appreciated…
Thanks for pinging me on this. I really appreciate how you help to make this community better!
So, the dark mode is now activated
By default, it should get enabled as soon as your device/browser is in dark mode.
I’m using the default Discourse system for this (Automatic Dark Mode color scheme switching - announcements - Discourse Meta), in order to not have to add (and maintain) yet another plugin.
Hope it helps your eyes!
It works awesomely, thank you a lot!!! @_MP
Is there a manual switch somewhere? My Chrome on desktop doesn’t switch to dark mode…
You need to set it on your OS level (at least I needed to, Win > Settings > Colors > Dark).
But that affects all other apps as well.
On Ubuntu: Settings/Appearance/Dark Mode. Default (aka darkish mode) doesn’t work.
I hope someone will invent a “not-too-dark” mode. Dark mode is imho not that good. Instead of flashing bright screen around your text, you have flashing bright text.
Same here. Looks nice. Only the white logo now… (ok, we’re picky…)
Thank you. Makes this such a delight to read with this theme!
I’ve noticed a problem with the mobile display of the website. When I write a new post, the right side is cut off and I have to manually zoom out. Anybody else experiencing this? For me it happens on Safari on an iPhone. Looks like this:
A very nice Mise en Abyme!
