My eyeballs are bleeding! Staring at screens so many hours per day.
I'm using a night mode browser plugin, ("Dark Night Mode for Chrome) but it leads to weird effects in JIRA. White boxes and some components not visible. I wonder if a night mode will ever come to JIRA or Confluence?
- how can dark mode on server products be configured?
- is there a way for admins to upload a style sheet, e.g.?
- The Mac app only connects to hosted Jira Cloud, not Jira Server, correct?
An "upvote here" link is not a "Solved", imo.
I actually gave up on dark themes altogether because they are not offered on any of the applications I use for work, or they only offer partial dark modes which are useless...
Instead I recommend to the folks here on Windows to enable the invert display under accessibility options. You can use hotkey Ctrl+ Win + C to toggle back and forth between regular display and inverted colors.
This has been a usable solution for me. I can leave all my dumb applications on their regular screaming-white settings, and then toggle the whole thing black. I only have to toggle back to bright/regular when I'm viewing image files, but this isn't a big part of my job.
As a bonus it isn't an extra application to run bogging down my machine.
That works OK but in some cases the inversion colors are pretty bad.
Anyway, found this and it seems to work pretty well but it only affects Jira
Same here. Last week Dark Reader stopped working in Jira (team-managed) inside tasks as well as some various other pop-up elements. I found a temporary solution for tasks, though: hover over the task link in the header. That somehow resets the Dark Reader theme for that task (until the page is refreshed, that is). Not sure if this issue is related to Dark Reader, Jira, my browser, or some random other process.
For Jira Server > 7.0.0 you can use the Dark Theme App which allowes every user to turn the dark theme off/on:
But it's not designed for Confluence :-(
Here you have new Dark Mode chrome extension -- https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/night-mode-for-jira/nlgcogdbamhmdbpaabmpklojolokodaa
Works like a charm, including Confluence and other Atlassian staff.
Thank you all for your contributions.
It is possible to get the (Atlassian) Dark mode via the AUI:
So another option would be to get the color values used in this Dark mode (but how to get them?), and to apply them in 'Custom Colour Scheme' at space level (url is: https:// [your domain name]/wikis/spaces/dochangecolourscheme.action?key=[your wiki space] )
