Dark Mode for Duolingo. Feedback?
I would like to give feedback and don't know where to put it. So I put it here. I would like a dark mode for Duolingo.
Thanks in advance and best regards Stefan
I've been using the Dark Reader add-on for years. It works very well with Duolingo. Looks like this:
IMHO, a dark mode would be very low priority for the understaffed Duo engineers.
Dark Reader has filters. You can adjust brightness, contrast, grayscale, etc. to your liking.
Preview, coming soon:
The CSS is mostly ready but some of the extra's aren't. It will have a brightness slider and an option for dynamic brightness based on the position of the sun.
Unlike my previous version, this one is designed to be a bit more "for everybody" and it keeps as much as possible close to it's normal version.
I like how it looks, but I am super impressed with the fact that you got 4000 points in one day. That is awesome!!!!!

Last time I tested an older dark scheme (don't remember which one) in 2017 it was not truly compatible with the "Lesson userstyle from tiramisues": https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/24634938/Lessons-Userstyle-to-get-some-things-of-the-old-look-back
Thank you for summing up the options, but I'm not sure if mentioning Stylish scripts is currently a good idea considering their invasion of their user's privacy. A new version of my dark mode is largely ready and doesn't use third party scripts. It will be out "soon", the main issue I'm having atm is that the Google web store doesn't accept my CC, meaning I can't publish anything yet - as soon as that's resolved it will be available :).
Yes, I definitely should have linked my recent thread about the Stylus addon/extension replacement before: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/27870688$comment_id=27870900
Does your "dark schema" work in parallel with f.lux and 1900K/2300K + dimmed settings?
Will it be a Chrome extension, based on the "WebExtension API"?
Some users are still based on Firefox V52.9.0esr or V45esr, legacy addons and no WebExtensions API support....or even the possibility to upgrade to newer Quantum/ESR versions because of older CPU or OS.
I use that Dark Reader browser extension (Google Chrome). Works like a charm.
There is also userscript called Duolingo True Dark. http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Duolingo_Userscripts
It converts the colours of the website. White gets black... Your eyes can better relax that way while reading. Google can give more information ;)
If you are on a mobile device, you could always use a blue light filter. They always help me with eyestrain, especially late at night. :)
