Night Mode for JIRA / Confluence

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?

here are some open suggestions. you might want to vote/watch:




interesting there appears to be "darkfeatures" but you cannot change at least in Cloud it appears but have not spent time playing.

There is also a feature request for JIRA Server:

Note: That Confluence issue link is not related to a dark (night) theme. For Confluence Server, a more relevant issue is CONFSERVER-59063, and for Confluence Cloud, CONFCLOUD-69537.

 - 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?

Companies running Server versions: Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket
JRASERVER-63150 upvote for Jira Server.
BSERV-9949 Bitbucket server upvote Dark Theme
CONFSERVER-59063 confluence server dark mode


An "upvote here" link is not a "Solved", imo.

We definitely need this more than anything. What's the point in awesome product if U can't look at it?-)

Bright Mode definitely sucks and in out of date...  Every Confluence & Jira editor should leave the choice at it's paying users...

The Dark Reader Chrome extension seems to work better with no artifacts at my configuration.

Huh, on my browser, Jira glitches out and parts of the spa are rendered white for a short time before turning black.

also, a plugin affects n websites. I am developing web products. I leave my browser 100% stock. Otherwise, it's easy to miss issues experienced by people without the addon.

This is a great plug-in.  Set up the Site List (inverted listed only) to only apply to atlassian site, other sites are unaffected. Thanks!

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 :-( 

My eyes say "thank you". Awesome input!

I'm assuming only administrators can install this?

You need to pay for it and only available for servers, .. not a good solution :/

For what seems like such a simple request that is widely implemented by other web apps, this all seems way to complicated. Ideally we'd be able to use skins like in Atom/Sublime. I sure would prefer Solarized Light to the current color layout on Jira.

Here you have new Dark Mode chrome extension --


Works like a charm, including Confluence and other Atlassian staff.

This doesn't seem to work in Confluence as the OP suggests :(

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] )

ok that's very nice. how do i get this on jira cloud?

Here, another Chrome dark mode extension, Dark Reader:


Works like a charm :)

Thanks, this seems really good so far :)

Highly recommend installing Stylus Chrome Extension.  

You can browse various styles from within the extension.

The best one I have found so far is Jira Dark 2020.

If it gets out of sync, you can also try my take on it :)

If you're already using Stylus, I created a Userstyle theme that automatically updates. I just added a couple of changes this month.
