It is safe to say that the “Dark Mode” is now a necessary feature for every application or web service. Even though it is easy to implement dark mode for mobile and desktop applications, it isn’t the same for a website.
A webpage includes a lot of dynamic elements and that varies for every website on the Internet. So, a “one-switch for all” approach does not work for websites and that is the only reason I haven’t had enough time to implement it here.
Nevertheless, to let you enable dark mode for any website you website, I thought of sharing a neat little trick that I use.
