I think it was Linux which first introduced the concept of dark themes. Then a lot gaming and hacking communities adopted it. After Apple introduced it in their product, everyone is after dark themes. Android has it, Windows offers one and so on.

How hard is it for you to make a dark theme variant ?

@Abhi Not hard at all. My community over athttps://forum.phenomlab.com has both light and dark themes. Dark by default, but any registered user can change this.

Is it ?

Last day a developer showed me switching between dark and light through code. Then we have to build the theme to use it. It was a nice experience . I hope that is how it works everywhere.

Flarum has an in-built dark theme.

Yes. When you are in the forums area, click your profile avatar and cycle between Light mode and Dark mode :)

Yes, but it's not that great and doesn't allow users to choose.

No plugin for that ?

How do you offer that feature ?

Nice. I have seen some forums which offer theme selection from footer. Not everyone offers a dark theme, but many variants.

I thought about using it, then I thought " I like light themes " 😎

Dark themes are good when it is suitable to niche. Something like an admin forum can be well placed with a light theme than a dark one.
