Dark Mode

Dark Mode is a type of software option that makes the user interface dark. It changes the light background to dark color and it makes the color of the text from dark to light.

The result of this is that we get a pseudo-inverted interface which is actually not completely opposite to the “light mode”, but still only dark colors are seen in it.

Dark mode, or also called “night mode”, is very popular among developers for many years. Since developers have to keep an eye on the source code for a long time, the dark background proves to be very helpful, as it produces less trouble for the eyes.

In the recent times, dark mode has become a very popular option for all end users as it is a standard option for both Windows and macOS.

The first version of Windows that used to support dark mode is after Windows 10 October 2018 Update. The first version of macOS which used to support dark mode is the macOS 10.14 Mojave, which was released in September, 2018.

Although there is no standard dark mode palette, each developer has to choose how to implement it.

While some dark modes have dark gray themes, others have a completely black theme. In other versions, you can get different types of hues, such as slate or dark blue.

You will see the option to switch to Dark Mode in one of the program’s settings in the “General” or “Interface” section. In some websites, you can also see the option of dark mode.
