Lazarus pages from the dark side

(1/2) > >>

I found some handy plugin and the respective settings to make these website(s) as dark as I could, so I can keep them open on the side for longer periods of time, under any lighting conditions I happen to be under. Some of the design elements on this page and the sub-pages were slightly painful to deal with using some of the styling plugins that are floating there in the ether, as they were not very compliant with this site's layout and thus I ended up having to squint at times when browsing through, just to mitigate the effect of the lighting and contrast issues the plugins didn't counter.

Inverting the colors did the trick in respect to the board and now everything seems to be kosher, with the one I'm using; that being Swarth. I'm unsure if Dark Reader can do the same. The attached images demonstrate the configuration. Now, my only hope is that some more eyeballs can be brought to the dark side.

However, please call your doctor for any professional advice, as that could also help to inform these matters.

Why does this tune come to mind...
Always Look on the bright Side of Life ...

Mind that due to the smaller opening of the pupils when looking at lighter environment, light background helps focusing. Though depending on personal conditions either dark or light can be better.
Light of course does not mean using your screens as floodlight. And light only works well if the rest of your room is proper lit, and also correctly lit as to make sure there is no glare or reflection.

Mind that - for all that I know - reading a paper book should also be done in a well lit environment. Doing this in the semi dark - so I have been told countless times - does risk damage to ones eyesight. That said, A dark scheme can be used in a well lit environment. (I guess?).

Also mind, that probably lots depend on the quality of the monitor. And proper setup of it.

Any way - ask you doctor. And also ensure to pay attention to all other health issues related to screen work.

And no, "bugs are attracted to the light" is not an argument. ;)

Yes, Monty may shine through as they have brought me, and I believe many more, a wondrous view of the world we wander. They are by all means unparalleled, standing the erosion of timeless comedy and most importantly, funny as all hell.

I would like to point out Martin_fr, that you are a true scholar, and a proper Jedi in these matters, from the looks of it.

The dark atmospherics do bring to the environment an elevated mood for extended periods of writing, and while the themes from the light side within programs are not a hindrance for comfortable computing, juggling the visual aspects of multiple computers or a variation therein can prove bothersome, at times. In my circumstances, I have variations in my workflows and wares, albeit with the understanding that not everything can be calibrated to harmoniously coexist and conform to the immediate surroundings of my inhabited workspace.

Martin, now you are just being unfair.  :-X

I also prefer dark theme browsing. My favorite is https://chromewebstore.google.com/detail/dark-reader/eimadpbcbfnmbkopoojfekhnkhdbieeh
