Dark theme forum

I would love it if the unity forum had a dark mode. Would perfectly compliment the rest of my UI and be much easier on the eyes.

there were some userstyles that did it... did have a modified version myself... kind forgot about it.. but they do exist and they aren't bad

I wonder if they could make it so only pro subscribers have the dark theme.

I wouldn’t restrict it. Leave it available to everyone.

I think we should not stop there. Because of it’s bad for your eyes normally and it supports the very bad habit to work in dark rooms, it’s safe to say it would be beneficial to remove the dark theme entirely.

What about the others? They stink?

A dark theme would be highly welcome but It will probably never happen. There doesn’t seem to be many people who care about the forums here.

I could make a CSS file if people are interested, but you would have to install an addon such as Stylus (FF, Chrome) then copy-paste it in. Here's what I managed in 10 minutes just messing with the CSS, but I didn't keep track of changes:

I checked into stuff like that but it seemed to compromise security, basically giving the contents of the whole webpage to a 3rd party which I’m not exactly excited about.

Thank you! I’m ready to try, Stylus doesn’t seem that evil. :wink:

I'd love to see Unity add this, but release it on April Fools Day requiring a Plus/Pro subscription. Open it up to everyone on April 2nd :p

This came up a few times already and the suggestion so far was use something like “Dark Reader”.

Then the forum looks like this:

Not too bad and easy to customise. :slight_smile:

I want dark theme too because browser extensions usually follow all web history and sell it

Cool idea how about it Unity, one days work for a web developer and a much more programmer friendly forum?

+1 for dark reader, quite nice out of the box and has an opt-in flow that leave alone sites already with dark mode. Now I just press alt+d whenever I come across a site without dark mode :)
To set up:

  • set listed only: click extension icon => Site List => invert listed only.
  • Add shortcut: chrome://extensions/shortcuts => Dark Reader => Toggle Current Site (mine is Alt+D)
