In preparation for my upcoming talk at , I’ve updated my blog post calling for a FreeDesktop Dark Style Preference. More details, more screenshots, and updated info from other platforms (like the iOS 13 beta).


@cassidyjames I think as well as dark mode, an accessibility/high-contrast mode should also be a thing too.

@cassidyjames Doesn't GTK currently do it by setting the 'theme' to HighContrast? in which case it doesn't work if an application isn't using Gtk to draw (e..g games) and web browsers could tell a page they prefer a high contrast mode.

@PlutoisAPlanet For elementary OS we don't support the high contrast GTK stylesheet anymore because it breaks so many apps; instead, we strive to have contrast compliance everywhere. But that's fair, yeah I see what you mean.

@cassidyjames The GTK HighContrast sheet seems to change "too much".
