Why doesn't repl.it have a dark mode?

Why does repl.it have no official dark mode?


I don't know much about web development, so I was just wondering if there was like some complexity in making a dark mode for a website or something.


So repl.it has a dark theme in the IDE, but why can't that be transferred to the whole of the site.

What I mean, is the menu and stuff on the side is also in dark mode when you change the theme in the IDE.

e.g.image

As you can see, the menu at the side is also dark theme, meaning (in my mind) that the whole site could be in this dark theme, so why isn't there an option for that?


Sorry for the long, most likely badly worded, post

Any ideas?

It just a matter of resources. We're trying to get more developers but we're a small team.

Maybe

@moudy
can make this work soon.

Now I don't think we should ping the CEO for everything, since I think we're probably just annoying him, but hey, it worked.

I know, I always make to sure to read everything, before I speak. Don't want to falsely accuse people of things they didn't do, right?

Haven't seen anything about what

@mat1

Good question

Take a look at SO. They just (or are trying to) implemented a dark mode, and there are soooo many bugs and they have a huge team. Like

I don't think anyone wants to waste time making dark mode. They have enough on their hands just with plain coding. Also, most people on repl just code Python...

@nt998302
so are you saying that the devs are too busy to make a dark mode?

Profile icon
AphixDev

@CodingCactus
That would be my best guess. They are probably trying to make other out-there stuff, if you know what I mean :P

ideas for what

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@iterate
on why there is no dark mode

Profile icon
BlueComet

@CodingCactus
this is my theory
a lot of the text is black so if they made a dark mode then it would be impossible to read

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@iterate
but, as seen in the picture, the text is changed to white?

Profile icon
BlueComet

@CodingCactus
you should ask the developers if you can

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@iterate
don't know how, I was hoping that they might see this?

Profile icon
BlueComet

@CodingCactus
maybe you could tell
@amasad
after all he is the ceo

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@iterate
i guess.
lol, you did it for me

Profile icon
BlueComet

@CodingCactus
and if he doesn't know then he could probably tell the designers
