I Love This Repo!

I cannot believe that I have gone so long without knowing of this Repo.

I've literally only been using it for 10 minutes and I can't get enough of it.

Just thought I might share this(I can barely contain my excitement!!!)

Have A Great Day!

You can also explore Dark Reader browser extension which can turn any website in dark mode.


Yes but in my experience using it on an older laptop or PC makes your browser really laggy and slow.


I second that. Even tho lately I haven't been using it too much. Too often dark background and white letters makes your eyes hurt and can be bad in long term.


Yeah I can't stand any light theme and I have been using 'Stylus' (Stylish back in the day before we learned about their crap) for a long time to write my own themes for sites. Dev already has a dark theme built in that I have been using though, this must have a bunch of added features. It must not be at UserStyles.org because it has multiple authors or it's too advanced maybe? I won't have time to look into for a couple of days so I thought I'd comment/ask. Thanks for sharing.


Nice, you can also save it to your reading list to read later, thanks for the comment though!


Yeah, I did. My reading list is getting way too long and I have very little time... I probably shouldn't be on here right now lol, but this has become one of my favorite places on the web...

I feel the same haha.


Hey guys just started using it, it is very simple to use and instructions are concise and clear.
