It's been quite some time now since this feature was first requested. I think it's vital to let people work in night mode, because developers are a core userbase for trello, and we love dark or night modes universally. It would make your product so much easier on the eyes to use at night.
Please add dark mode or night mode not only for aesthetic reasons because it would just look cleaner and better, not just to actually fit in with all of the other Apps and the Operating System itself macOS, not just to save battery life on OLED screens because black/dark OLED displays save power and the environment by extension, BUT ALSO for health reasons. The glare of staring at bright backgrounds is very hard on the eyes.
Completely agree that this is important. The Windows app works great, but it NEEDS a dark mode, and one that is integrated with windows i.e. it works based on the setting in control panel. This is not a big ask, guys. Please take a look, it would make a lot of people happy.
the mean thing is trellos (in my eyes) main competitor has dark mode and I hate their UI, but they have darkmode. Every tool I am working with has darkmode...ah...except Trello. C´mon Trello...you have made so many great improvements in the last months! Trello Business is really getting cooler and cooler...Bring it on!!! Turn the lights down, baby! Yeah!
OMG, people have been asking for this for 2 and a half years (in this one tread), probably more!
This should be incredibly easy!
In the backend, just make the HEX or RGB values available for users to change the colours themselves.
Add this to the settings/preferences, and we'll do it ourselves.
You already have the top header text changing color from dark to light font depending on the BG image, whether it's bright or dark. Clearly these color values can easily be changed.
I'm cancelling my pro membership for Trello!
Maybe when people start cancelling memberships, that will give Trello the incentive to have ONE dev spend HALF a day on this!
We are actively looking for a replacement for Trello that's easier to use and gets better support. Other vendors of different tools (like, say, Slack) put this feature in quite some time ago, and it speaks volumes that Trello isn't seeing the love from Atlasslan. We've been using it from quite some time, and since the acquisition it's gone downhill.
@Torben_trellowhat's the go with Dark Mode for Mac OS?
I'm sure Atlassian and the team at Trello can see that there's a high demand for a single feature that you've got implemented everywhere else. Trello even released a whole new look and feel to the entire app and yet implementing a feature that's highly requested seems to be outside their capabilities?
You able to bring some of the team leaders on so we can chat and figure out what the hold up is?
Bump! I would really like an update that says „we are working on it”. It’s been two and half years and we still are waiting. It’s getting ridiculous tbh to be pointed to the desktop version if the solution to this problem is really easy.
I won’t be surprised if Trello team spent more time telling us they won’t do it than it would take to actually ship it at this point 🙈
It's very disappointing that trello web application and desktop application has not been provided with the dark mode. Majority of the atlassian user base is developer and we developers seek nothing but a dark mode in every app we use when it comes to cosmetic aspect of it. It is not only about look and feel, but the health of our eyes too. So please, treat this as a high priority feature request. Just curious to know what is it taking you to make development on this front - lack of skilled resources (which I doubt), or anything else?
I really WANT a dark mode for web. Where is it. I can't find it anywhere, and I am not installing some browser extension that then has read access to all my crap. I have to have sun glasses on to use this web sight out of the box. What am I paying for besides storage??? Nothing new that has come out has been remotely useful to me in the past year, at least dark mode will keep the visual peace in my cave like coding environment.
Like most of your users have said multiple times, we need night mode/dark mode Trello.
Most of us developers spend a lot of time in front of screens, which on it's own can already be harmful to the human eye. However, light mode makes it even more aggressive.
Dark mode not only is more aesthetically pleasing, but easier on the human eye.
- Norberto A., just another developer voicing their opinion.
Another voice requesting this. For Trello to be useful to me, it needs to have dark mode as the ideas I’m trying to capture often occur in the middle of the night. With dark mode apps i can capture the idea and go back to sleep within seconds. Without dark mode, I’m often awake for hours.
This feature is still really needed but in the meantime there is a Chrome extension called Trello Night that is helpful: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/trello-night/mfifmoklnkpndjjcalemaggldbicmkki?hl=en
I was really hoping to be able to use the desktop app which I just discovered, but the web app is so much better to me because I use a chrome extension which turns everything into dark mode, including Trello. Unfortunately, I will have to continue to use the web app so for the safety of my eyes and my sanity. Please fix this my Trello dudes. This is way overdue
Until they realize that is not a closed issue (because its not something they see of value and promote the use of extensions that cannot be guaranteed to be secure) I have taken to coloring cards a dark color (one by one as I add them, time willing) and using a dark background image. For custom colors I use a small tile-able dark image to overcome the limited palette (lacking palate) choices.
After 3 years, still no night mode in Trello App.

For those searching for a bit of darkness in your life, here are easy alternatives for your pleasure while you endlessly wait for Atlassian to care about your needs more than your money.
The Dark mode is possible using Dark Reader available on all browsers. You can also take advantage of different shortcuts' creation features.
In Chrome and Edge for Trello, it will be as if you were using the cheap Atlassian's Chromium wrapper.
In Firefox, only the nightly builds have the feature for turning a page into a desktop app. I
In Safari, you are unfortunately confined to the Apple prison, so no solution. Your best alternative is to use Unite 4, the free version allows 3 apps and provides Dark Mode.
- Chrome: In options menu (...) click More Tools->Create Shortcut the select Open as a window.
- Edge: In options menu (...) click Apps->Install this site as an app.
- In Firefox Nightly: From the options menu in the address bar click Use This Site in App Mode
Dark Reader is the best dark mode plugin there is.
