Discussion on: Should You Really be Coding in Dark Mode?

I like dark mode so much, if I could I would have dark text on a dark background.

Jokes aside. I've known both sides, I've seen the light and now I live in the dark. I find it very convenient, everything pops at me from the screen, and I feel less bombarded than I do with the light from the background.

As far as sleep goes, I have a terrible relationship with sleep. I can lay in bed for 2 hours if my mind can even slightly wander. No amount of light reducing is gonna fix that problem.

My horrible workaround is to work until my mind is so exhausted, I can't even brush my teeth correctly. That way I just get into bed, and I don't have the strength to argue with sleep, so sleep wins.
