  • Feature Request- Dark mode

    Whiteness of Phoronix is really painful for eyes , while i'm aware extensions like Dark Reader can be used by user , it really makes web browsing experience very slow , especially on websites with heavy JS.

    https://github.com/darkreader/darkreader

    As of 2020 , most of the websites i visit ( including mainstream ones and Linux related others ) are offering dark mode by default , which is behind a simple toggle.

    That would be a nice addition to Phoronix.

    Honestly I can not look at the Web without Dark Reader anymore. It would be nice if this and every other website was dark BY DEFAULT, with a toggle to turn it bright. It's a shocking experience when you're using your computer at night and suddenly a completely white screen pops up on you.

      I also miss this feature a lot. I'm a web developer and could help to create a dark theme. Where is the website source code?

        Since i made this feature request Github also introduced dark mode. Phoronix is now the only website i visit often yet doesn't offer a dark mode.

          The one blocker from the dark mode implementation I worked on is not yet handling of the SVG graphs. So until coming up with some elegant solution there that is the main blocker.

            What is the problem? Maybe I can help.

              I've noticed unreadable charts here and on OpenBenchmarking when using Dark Reader. So that's already currently a problem. I want to suggest a quick fix, just put a white background in every chart. It's not the ideal solution but plenty enough to unblock the feature for now, and probably very easy to do.

                  I agree with this request, as another user stated: Phoronix is the only site I use that doesn't currently have Dark Mode, and when I browse it on my phone in the dark, I get blinded every time I open a link to it.

                  Even though the dark-mode of SVGs might be "off" currently, that wouldn't matter so much to me since I mostly read the news articles. Waiting a couple of weeks extra for the SVGs to be fixed would be fine.

                    +1 from me for the Dark mode.
