Workspace Dark Mode?

Hi guys, I'm sure most of you coders use VS or Atom and they all come as default on "dark mode", it is easier to differentiate the colours and it's more comfortable for the eyes.

Is there a way to switch the workspace to dark mode?

I wish there was a dark mode so I don't have to blind myself every time I open this website.

Hey there,

Currently, there is not. If you want, you can send your suggestion for Dark Mode to the Support Team. They like to hear what suggestions we have. :)


the first thing i looked for as soon i opened the Workspaces for the first times, WHERE IS THE DARK THEME/MODE SWITCH BUTTON?

I did as well. Time to download a IDE for Ruby and follow the videos that way.

I would love to see a sitewide "Dark Mode" (profile, workspaces, lessons (videos & code challenges), etc.). I implemented one locally using TamperMonkey, but a native one would be nice.

If anyone wants dark mode for all websites i use a google chrome extension called Dark Reader. Some websites might look a little weird and you will need to turn it off for those but most work perfectly, treehouse.com being one of them!

Michael Charara That extention really helps a lot thank you so much!!

Two years after this message was created we don't have a dark mode yet... That's too sad..

yup, disappointing.
