Like:

  • Looks good, UI/UX solid
    • rarely have trouble reading native Confluence content

Dislike:

  • reverts back to 'white' mode odd time
  • odd time loads 'white' mode and then switches over to dark mode
    • ie slows loading I suspect
  • many Atlassian Marketplace apps do not work in dark mode

I tried dark mode for about 3 minutes one day. I am using Confluence to document one of my company's applications. I found that emojis, panel/table background colors, and screenshots look horrible in dark mode, so I switched back to light mode. When we roll out the documentation for use by the team, we will need to tell people not to use dark mode.

@Rodrigoimprovement like I'm logged in to my Atlassian account to write this but none of the community pages work in dark mode. Atlassian Marketplace website another.

I have used browser extensions to create dark mode. It can slow down page load. But the real problem is if a site is not designed for dark mode at times the experience is not poor.

Oof, I loved it the first time that I used it, but found the same issues you mention.

Like:

  • Eye relaxing 

Dislike:

  • For some reason, the styling or separation of the areas feel counterintuitive, too crowded. I don't know how to put it, it just feels off :D

Looking forward to its further development and integration in other apps.
