Edit: Seems like I was overly excited too and missed an important part of the message: the Dark Theme is not available just yet and we'll still have to wait a bit more. We don’t have a specific ETA to share right now but it’s safe to say you’ll see it released during the first half of 2019.

Hope this clarifies!




Hi everyone!

I'm super excited to announce that Sourcetree for Windows has now DARK THEME!

You can read more in our blog, together with other features that have been released. Hope you enjoy it :)

Kind regards,


Hi Ana,

that's great news! Is there a way we can sign up on a beta to try out the dark theme?

Hi Ádám, we do want to implement a dark theme in Sourcetree Enterprise, but there is currently no planned delivery timescale for it. As you know, our team is small and we need to prioritize our features :)

Hope you understand!

Kind regards,


Dark theme is important for our eyes.  I'm migrating to git kraken only for the dark theme. People with eye strain (a lot of developers) can't use your app for long time. 

I think that this feature has the priority number one for many developers.

Kind regards.

Totally. I use Sourcetree in Mac mainly for Dark theme and whats the No.1 thing I miss in windows. I'm really surprised there is no plan for Supporting it in Windows while Mac got  several months before. Its really unfortunate Atlassian.

Dark theme please

Dark theme please

Yes, this should be prioritised i'm working in a company with 8.000 employees and we have almost all Atlassian products but my colleagues have almost all changed from Sourcetree to git kraken because of the dark theme that comes standart...

Just saying that you are loosing users and customers just on this 'small' missing feature...

Dark theme please. The full workflow I have show up in dark (windows, unity, adobe stuff, vs, anything) but Sourcetree. At least slack can be "hacked", so now the only one is the $subject.

Even Google has started to work on a universal dark theme solution for android.

I agree, dark theme is important feature for the eyes.

I don't know how you prioritize your work, but I think a dark theme for Windows is way more important than just about anything at this point.

Hi everyone!

Voting for dark theme here won't have as much impact as voting on it's feature request ticket, you can find it at We use feature request to gather information on how many people is interested in a certain feature, and that's what our team mainly uses to decide which features to implement, so please make sure to add your vote there!

If you have any questions, let us know :) 



Hi Ana, hi Atlassian team, hi everyone!

You had more than 5 years! 5! It's unacceptable.

I've already made a decision:
My brothers whose eyes have been suffering for a long time here is my message for you:
It's time to switch to Fork.

May the Dark theme be with you!

Thanks for my eyes ! Atlassian does not take our request into account since 5 years so I just switched to Fork and it's awesome :)

Switching to Fork because of no dark theme. Shame on you.

Downloaded the beta yesterday and have been using the Dark theme without problems...
