Hello Dynatrace Community and welcome to the Dark Side!
Earlier this year in the Community survey some of you signaled the need for a dark mode function, and we've heard you! As a new tech stack from Khoros that will allow the Community to have a dark mode of our own is still on its way, we'd like to present you with some workarounds you could use for now.
It's a browser extension (available for Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari*). Free of charge, easy to use, and customizable. While testing it we've noticed a slight performance lull, but not big enough to disturb your flow 🌊
Extra kudos for the option of forcing dark mode only on particular domains!
It's another extension, which is available for every widely-used browser. It's also free of charge (as a three-months trial of a Pro version or a forever-free version - Night Eye Lite). It's just as easy to use, and you can adjust it to your liking with only a few clicks.
You can use the Lite version on up to one browser for five websites of your choosing.
Built-In dark mode of your browser
If for some reason extensions aren't for you, or maybe you'd like to force dark mode onto every website you're visiting, we've got you covered too! Explore the built-in functionality of your browser ⬇️
This happened to be the most aesthetically pleasing and smoothly working solution we've tested.
And it's easy to enable, too.
To sum up:
|Safari||Night Eye Lite|
We hope this community tip was helpful! And if you want to share other extensions with your fellow Community divers, we'd love to hear from you in the comments 😉
Been using Dark Reader for a long time, it works great!
Quite a few dynatracers have asked how they missed the dark mode and were to find it in the settings 😋
