Thanks @Adan Alvarado for your work on this. As the OP, I just wanted to chime in to say that this is very cool and impressive, but not what we're looking for, as @Jon Bianco suggested (although I hope it works for Jon).
Setting aside the fact that it's incomplete (there are white artifacts scattered about and whole sections of the site that are not dark), what we're looking for is native dark mode support from Atlassian.
Thanks again for putting this together, and for sharing it.
True, but this is the most up to date version that it is easily distribuitable and anyone who would like to contribute is welcome to do so while we wait for native.
It is often better to release imperfectly than to never do so.
Which white artifacts bother you the most if you don't mind asking? :)
Thank you for your response
Dark mode / dark theme is one of the most popular features currently.
Our app DarkTheme for Jira has been available since the beginning of 2020 and does exactly what you are looking for.
the app provides three additional dark themes (dark modes) that can be switched on/off by every user on its own.
Just give it a try:
Paying for something like dark mode is akin to paying for rear window tinting in an SUV now-days. Package the dark mode in with the OOTB Jira feature set. There are already far too many 'features' that have extra cost associated with them. Charging for dark mode is absurdity at its best. Listen to your user base on this one Atlassian...
Just install this Chrome extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/night-mode-for-jira/nlgcogdbamhmdbpaabmpklojolokodaa
This is from a previous thread, there is also a Mozilla extension.
My guess is that there is a significant amount of work to do, that will make the experience well worth it to pay for the dark mode. That is a decent amount of work.
I would not recommend using that Chrome extension as it has started asking for access to your browser history. Check the Q&A of the extension page to see the author denying it and claiming its a standard warning. I had that extension and it isnt a standard warning.
I ended up using one of the many Stylish themes that you can find for free and inspect the css yourself. Several of them work better than the chrome extension ever did for me.
Alongside the other generic answers, the Dark Reader extension makes JIRA look really nice, not to mention every other site.
Just had the same question and ended up here. Because the posts here are from 6 or more months ago, i'll give an updated answer :)
I found some nice ones:
I already had the Global CSS and JS installed so that was an easy choice for me. I can add some custom tweaks myself
You could try to enable chrome://flags/#enable-force-dark and see if that helps. But... don't complain. It's a early stage feature which is making its first baby-steps. Hopefully we will see it implemented in one or in the other way. Be aware that it will enable dark mode across all websites.
Thanks for your response. I've looked at the "Stylish" Chrome browser plugin that you referenced, but my concern there is that they can "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit" which seems like a significant privacy concern.
I'm hoping that there is a function native to Jira.
I am not aware of noting that would be official. There are existing suggestion request which I highly recommend you to vote and watch
Making a dark mode is mostly modification of CSS that is loading, so all of those solutions probably are doing that and that is why it need permission to change something on a site. I do not expect that something can be changed on the backed
Anyway as a next step you can check all addons that are related to theme and Jira on the marketplace and maybe you can find something that would allow you to achieve
On October 20, 2021, Atlassian published a security advisory for Jira Service Management. The full advisory is available at this link. We've seen a number of questions already asking for...
