Make dark theme for iNaturalist site


Most big websites allow you display content with a dark theme (e.g. gmail, youtube, this forum). Can iNat make a dark theme option?
For an idea of what this looks like, I’ve used a chrome extension called dark reader, but native support would be nicer.



Wow, just trying out Dark Reader now and it’s working pretty well. I don’t think iNat will be redesigning the site any time soon, but when we do it’s possible we can address this. Curious, are there any glaring issues when using Dark Reader?

Glaring? I don’t think there are any. There are a few minor things:

I also remembered that I was going to add a couple more reasons for this request. Dark modes use less energy on some types of screens. And specific to iNat, I often find that some photos are really dark, and the contrast between the bright background and the dark photo makes it even harder to see the photo.
