Discussion on: GitHub has dark mode now—will you switch?

I use dark mode pretty much everywhere I can. Due to my somewhat peculiar mix of vision issues, I have a significantly easier time reading light text on a darker background.

That said, GitHub’s dark mode is a bit lower contrast than I would normally like. Labels on issues and PRs especially are more difficult to read because instead of doing the sensible thing and not changing them they tried to make them light text on a dark background but didn’t really account for contrast at all.

Yes, you make a good point. The number of repositories you have and your commit activity don’t match quite as well as I’d like. I also feel they should’ve taken more palette inspiration from the mobile version, too.
