Or search "dark mode for Chrome [or Firefox or whatever browser you use]," and it will come up with many users who have programmed dark modes for Duolingo. If Duolingo doesn't listen, the users will. It seems we have a knack of solving our own problems :D

May 22, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/JustinRowe18

Absolutely! But for now, (shameless self-promo), you could try mine! https://userstyles.org/styles/169205/darklingo

I tried to make it as similar to the normal duolingo as I possibly could have but I might have missed some things so feel free to tell me cause I update it frequently. (Also comes with a custom color feature)

Hi Justin, I have started using your Darklingo style a few days ago recommended by another user - it's great!

Is it possible to bring the dark theme for forums or even stories too? I know they redirect you to a website with a different label like forum.duo and stories.duo and you have worked with the main page, but it had be great if you can introduce them (especially due to this all-white new design).

I wanted to bring attention to another thing. I am learning French in which you at times see apostrophes (') sandwiched between two words. This (') becomes invisible if the following word is new i.e colored in orange. It may seem small, but its still an element of language / grammar which may be unnoticed by new learners.

Thanks for making this theme!

May 20, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/JustinRowe18

You're welcome! I really enjoyed making it.

Now addressing your first issue, sometimes, the dev team rolls out new features to certain audiences (this process is called A/B testing) to see how and if they will be used. This happened when the new navigation bar came out which made my theme outdated for some users until I got it as well. In the case of both subdomains (forum.duolingo.com and stories.duolingo.com), I have support for both of them. However, based off of the information that you have presented, I've determined that I have their outdated versions therefore making my style outdated for you and many others but I plan to roll out support the day I get the new versions.

As for your second issue, I have started going through the French lessons, (3 lessons down at the time of posting this), and have been scouting out for this invisible apostrophe and have also been unsuccessful in finding it so far but I will keep you posted on when I finally do :)

Thank you for the helpful critique.

Thank you so much! If my device allows, I may download your theme as well. It was well made.

May 21, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/JustinRowe18

Fixed the apostrophe issue! It turns out that the orange colored word had a box shadow that was the same color as the background covering a small portion of the word before it.

May 21, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Fauzan836172

Thank you so much for your kind reply and your explanations for the issues!

Ah, I understand about the style now, I can patiently wait. I am really surprised you looked into the apostrophe issue so carefully and even fixed it.

I see you have some other Styles too that I may check out. Thanks for looking into a user's feedback - shows you are a true web-developer :)

@JustinRowe18, I couldn't quite figure out how to download/apply the theme. I did install Stylish, as advertised on the link that you provided, but I couldn't find the option to look for your theme. I looked under Widgets > Android Styles and searched for "darklingo". Did I go about it all wrong?

May 22, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/JustinRowe18

I believe you were looking in the wrong place. Sadly, I'm unable to bring Darklingo to the mobile app for now so its limited to only the web. Sorry for the inconvenience.

hey, justin. can u please explain how ur dark mode works? is it like a copy of DL? in that would i have to start over with my progress and crowns? i am VERY interested but almost completely naive to the application and use of ur creation. thanks in advance. : )

May 22, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/JustinRowe18

Hey, um6661138! Glad to see you're interested!

Darklingo++ is actually something called a stylesheet. To get into what that is and what it does, we'll have to start with some web development basics.

HTML (HyperText Markup Language) defines the elements that you see on the screen (text, buttons, images, videos, inputs, etc). Now initially, all of these elements have their default styling/appearance which looks rather bland, (to see what I mean use the first link at the bottom of this post). However, you can add custom styling with CSS which can change an element's entire appearance.

CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) is used to make the elements mentioned in the last paragraph look visually appealing by changing their appearance with attributes. Some basic attribute examples would be background, text color, border and over 300 more. It can also change the layout of the page causing specified elements to flow in a particular order or even disorder depending on the intent of the developer.

So now that we have those two out of the way, to answer your first question, no, this is not a copy of Duolingo but rather a stylesheet that changes the color some elements to make them easier on the eyes. As for your second question, (even though I think the first answer was enough to satisfy both questions), no, you do not have to restart any of your progress seeing as a stylesheet is purely visual and not at all functional.

All unstyled HTML elements: http://htmlpreview.github.io/?https://github.com/cbracco/html5-test-page/blob/master/index.html

May 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/um6661138

thanks for replying. i get all that stuff but i guess i was wondering bc it seemed like u made it without DL's consent- which i am totally ok with. i just don't understand how i can use ur creation if it's not ok with DL, bc how would it work if they're not supporting it?

May 23, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/JustinRowe18

You're welcome! To answer your last question, there are browser extensions, most notably Stylish and Stylus, (applicable links at the bottom), that allow the installation of stylesheets onto whatever website you desire.

However, I do recommend you use Stylus because it's competitor, Stylish, has been caught in many cases of browsing history theft.

Stylus: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylus/clngdbkpkpeebahjckkjfobafhncgmne?hl=en

My eye doctor actually told me to stop learnig due to the brightness... so, the dark option would help not to strain our eyes as bad. Thus making it good for two reasons: 1. The change in the brightness would help our eyes to be able to focus better. 2. It is an awesome idea for personalization.

Doulingo, Please make the dark background an option!!!!!

May 19, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/A_Sesquipedalian

Of course it does, but Duolingo simply does not care about user feedback. They make decisions based on what makes them the most money. (Please can nobody insult me by disputing this, evidence indicates that they, for instance, recently made stories easier because it would apparently benefit them, although this does not mean that language learning will be of a good quality)

May 19, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Mariano_Rdzz

So is allowing for an optional dark theme going to make them lose money?

May 20, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/A_Sesquipedalian

Well, they would spend time and money changing graphics, but based on the fact most of the changes they make to Duolingo are graphics changes, this makes no sense.

It'll never happen. They've known for years we have wanted it and now even joke about it (look at the twitter post before April 1st), I will be truly surprised if they ever add it. I stopped hoping a long time ago, and just use a google plug-in. Sorry for being a downer but it's hard to hope for such a thing now. There are weekly posts about it and they wont add it, but they'll change the design of the website every six months it seems.

Agree with the grey color . I tried the black theme and it's really too dark for me . I'm always in a room with some lights on even when late at night so the black screen is not great either but I understand that people want/need it .

I finally use "Night shift" extension on Chrome , we can choose different colors and I got used to a beige background very quickly.

I wonder if Duo has any way of recognizing exactly how many of us are using an unofficial dark mode already. And of those, I wonder how many there are (like me) who never bother turning it off, simply because it's so bright.

I also doubt anyone would be voting against adding a dark mode ... there's really no downside to having one available, except for the extra code required (which wouldn't take much).

It's a definite yes from me.

They should have a survey and let the users customize their own set-up, and/or notify them when changes are coming-and let them choose if they want to have the new design, if they choose "no" the theme stay's the same. What is going through Duolingo's brain when doing this kinda thing???

For windows you can do windows key + "+" then windows key + "-" then altgr + i

it inverts the colours so the background is a nice black with orange accent colours. tho it does make the flags look funky colours

happy learning!!

Duolingo has colorful icons and skills' images, so that'll be better on a light background. If we have a dark mode, Duolingo's UI designers could have to redesign the color for this, and that's not an easy task.

But it'll still beautiful, I hope so :)

you can add an extension to your browser called "Dark Reader" it makes everything that is light darker. The only problem with it is when your doing a lesson it still shows the answer you picked instead of making it clear. especially if you need to use symbols in your language

Just curious. Since this is advertised as a "poll" and an upvote equals yes, and a downvote equals no......what is the final tally? I see there are currently 2353 more upvotes than downvotes, but that means wildly different things if there are fewer votes (almost unanimous) compared to if there were a rather large amount of votes (if it was almost 1 million votes, that is a rather close vote).
