I would like to know where to send my money so that Dark Mode can come to Ask Different. Stack Overflow has had it for two years and it is an absolute delight. I mostly spend time at AD in the evening hours and the difference between SO in Dark Mode and AD in its current Light Mode is - very literally in this case - like night and day. I notice that spending time on AD at night often interferes with my circadian rhythm (above and beyond just being irritating on the eyes).
I recognize that there are workarounds available by using third party browsers but, this being an Apple user community, I see no reason that we can't offer AD the same tool that SO has been offering Safari users since 2020 and not force users to change browsers. (I can give half a dozen technical reasons why not to use Chrome on Mac, too.)
From what I can tell, most of the pages on AD would look fine with basic inversion, so I don't see a big technical challenge in mostly copying the work that SO did to become Dark Mode-enabled and tweaking the colors a bit to match AD's existing design language.
What I'd like to know in this question is:
- Does anyone have direct knowledge of whether this is actively being worked on today (and if there is a planned release date)?
- How can I help to get this done sooner?
