A Dark Theme for Duolingo
Usually I practice on Duolingo during the night, perhaps for that a "dark" theme would be a nice addition? It really makes it a lot easier on the eyes and more pleasant to work with.
What do you guys think about this?
There are browser extensions , if you're using a computer that will make the background dark and the letters light. For Chrome there is Night Mode Pro and Dark Reader. For Opera and Firefox there are some nice extensions too, which make it look really nice.
It makes it a lot easier on the eyes. There is also a program called Flux that is free. It makes the screen less bright and easier on the eyes.
If you're using a phone, I can't help you because I don't know anything about smart phones. I guess that means I'm dumb. I have only a dumb phone.
I'm using an iMac, I've always used my iPad to use Duolingo but that broke and my phone doesn't have enough storage to download apps, so recently I've been using and iMac.
That would be cool, but at least on the computer, you could always turn the brightness down.
Why thank you - I do love my totally useless lingots, all useless 644 of them : )
I think that they might already be working on themes.
I was also planning to make a post about it anyway - which I'll still do.
When you look at many past or existing custom themes, they're almost all too bright. White letters on a black background are actually worse than black letters on a white background (not going to explain it here).
A dark theme should look more like this (this one has an added -30% brightness):
Extra dark (-50% brigtness):
In my opinion this looks very good and is very easy on the eyes. Absolutely nothing bright left, except the blue buttons on the right side which could use a darker blue background.
This is a great idea. I wanted something like this for a long time. I really hope a moderator or an admin sees this...
On iOS you can go to Settings : General : Accessibility : Display Accommodations and turn on Invert Colours. Cumbersome, but there it is.
I believe he means that the background be black, and the words be white, instead of vice versa.
Thank you! You'll get there if you want to - it ends up becoming a habit : )
I suggest you to use Dark Reader extension for chrome which will make everything in chrome appear in dark theme... However, I have been looking for a solution for my phone app which I use mostly to practice... Let me know if you find any method
