There are some links on the Internet that seem to suggest that a dark theme is available for source tree on Windows. The latest information that I can find from the official blog of sorcery suggests that a dark theme was available for Mac OS in July 2017.
I downloaded the latest version of source tree for windows today. However, I do not find any option for dark theme.
Can anyone please confirm if there is a dark theme available for windows or not? I have medical problems and I find it difficult to use source tree.
If source tree does not have a dark theme, can you please suggest any other get a client that may have a dark theme. May be a third party that is not your direct competitors
Thank you for any inputs
Thank you for your useful response. Can you please advise where did you get the 3.2.4 version? On the website of source tree app.com, I am still getting 3.1.3 version. There is a link to 3.2 version in the i archive sections but I am not sure if it is supported. We do not want to get into a situation where we get the dark theme but have bugs in the basic functionality.
Thank you for any inputs @Jean-Sebastien Breault
Unfortunately, I have to give negative feedback. Why is everything tinted *blue*??? It doesn't seem so much a dark theme as a blue theme. The lack of contrast on the left panel is annoying, especially if you're running Flux (which you should be if you're in dark mode).
Also, for HTML your font colors need significant tweaking. Here's GitKraken on the left, SourceTree on the right. (Why is red even a possible font color at all???!?!?!?!?)I'm complaining, but please know that I'm glad you guys are moving in this direction.
You can get the new version (and skip the whole updates fiasco) by downloading it directly. It will update your old version to the new one:
Then, go to Tools>Options and General/Theme and select Dark
some people have the same problem that I had yesterday, and the problem was that I didn't know how to get the sourcetree latest version that includes dark theme on windows...
But I know right now. So it's easy, you need to have the version 3.1.3 installed in your PC, some people have 3.1.2 and when they try to update that version in the sourcetree options, maybe didn't find any updates, so you need to go to sourcetree official pages and click the download button in the main page, it will start downloading the version 3.1.3 and you need to install that version.
After that finally you have the version 3.1.3 and you need to open the option in the menu TOOLS -> OPTIONS -> UPDATES and sourcetree can detect the new update to version 3.2.5, let's do it. you need to download that version (3.2.5) and to restart your app sourcetree.
After the restart, you can open TOOLS -> OPTIONS -> GENERAL and in that panel you can change your theme, wow there is a dark theme available.
I hope this post helps you.
Bye and best regards for all
Thank you so much!
My issue was:
Applying the fix:
I could not access 3.2.5. Here is what I tried:
I first installed 3.1.3 from the official pages (I did not have a previous installation installed). I am on Windows 10 ,and I followed along with your steps, @LuisEdoPR but the update button was disabled. The update notifications checkbox is also locked for some reason and the text for that checkbox is missing.
Next I tried installing the latest on top of itself again, to try out your strategy, @Hengzhi Shao It did not unlock the button for me.
Out of curiosity, I decided to install an archived version and update that. The button was enabled, which had me excited.
But clicking it gave this error:
I have my fingers crossed that I can get my hands on 3.2 and the dark theme soon. I'm eager to make this my go-to git client but the standard theme is too harsh for me to justify it right now.
Hi @Eric Augustinowicz ,
From a few people's reported experience, they suggest that getting update to 3.2.5 is like rolling a dice:
That seems to be the most sensible interpretation of what's going on currently.
Hey guys, I was very excited to try the new dark theme but much to my disappointment the colors render it completely unusable. Any chance you would consider you'd consider implementing a solution like VSCODE that allows user to add their own theme config and cycle through multiple version. While I'm coding I peronally change theme depending on the lighting or how tired my eyes are and while I do enjoy the app and other atlassian products the colors dont translate so well for my coding space lol
Thank you both @Adrian Martinez and @Jean-Sebastien Breault for your helpful responses. Unfortunately I am not seeing the ability to update from the source tree version 3.1.2 that I am having. The check for updates button is disabled and if I try to manually update it Then also it is not enabled. Looks like ok the 3.2.version is not available to everyone. Not getting any responses from customer support also .t please advise if you can think of any solution otherwise I guess I will just wait and hope and cross my fingers for an update
@minnsey can you please respond. Thanks you
Hi folks, While the full post is over on our blog I'd like to share the dark theme we've got planned for 2019 here directly as well to keep the discussion going. The ...
