Copy and paste into your (non-mobile) browser URL bar for an ad-hoc dark-mode text editor:

data:text/html;charset=UTF-8, <html contenteditable><style>body{font:600 1rem monospace;color:Gainsboro;background:DarkSlateGray}</style>

Made some improvements to this. Now there's a version to save the text you typed as a text file

I just realized I can turn this into a bookmarklet since it's so short (especially compared to a full WYSIWYG)

@Shufei All about that magic ;)

Actually, I'm wondering if it's possible to add an event listener so that Ctrl + S will automatically download the typed text as a file

@cypnk works on Firefox for Android too, though I had to boost font size to 2.5

@er1n I tested this on FF 72.0.2 on linux and Windows so I can't vouch for older versions

@er1n lol! Perils of versions. BTW, I'm not entirely comfortable with some of the newest changes in Firefox with each version

I'd rather not use a different browser, but I don't like where Mozilla is heading lately

@andreas Ooh, that's even nicely styled too. I don't know why, but these kinds of little hacks make them so much fun to use
