Feel free to comment what you think can be improved or if there is something that you will like me to add to it.
Thanks for listening and doing something about it...a lot of people needed it and so, here are a few lingots for you!
Hope this is real. If this is real and might be coming out, this would be the dark version everyone wanted. Finally people can use Duolingo for long periods of time. This is what I have wanted.
It is totally real and I work on improving it every time I have some spare time. Thanks for appreciating it :)
This is very thoughtful and caring of you to code this. If only I was 50 years younger I would love to learn but I guess I'll have to stick with quality checking wine and food ;-). Have some lingots in appreciation of your work.
Hey! So im one of the other people working on this extension. I saw this behavior myself while doing some development. Good to know its not just me. Ill try to find a way to make it auto apply on page load.
Nice work. I like the Arial and Verdana fonts. It's a very nice contribution. Enjoy 10 lingots for your effort.
Good catch. The code works locally for the first page, however, the settings are not global as you move to the exercise. Anyway, this is his beta version, I am sure he will make modifications if we are showing enough interest.
Just tried the extension- I'd like to preface with: terrific work! I could never create something like this! However, I'm noticing that when I travel to a different duolingo page, the colors and fonts don't show up immediately (I have to click on the extension symbol for them to appear) and there are odd black outlines around the lessons on the homepage. Again, stellar work! Just reporting on the quality I saw :)
Thank you for your feedback, I am aware of those issues. It is my first time coding a chrome extension, so some things are quite new even though I have been coding for a couple of years :)
You can download it to chrome here, https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/duolingo-appearance/oifnhalickiahlaoacabfafjaibhhimo
May you be blessed with good fortune, friend. I'm appalled that discussion of the terrible new look has already ceased. Guess the sheep will always be sheep.
