Known Issues

  • Theme switching based on brightness is currently broken for all versions of Dynamic Dark Mode running on macOS Mojave 10.14.4 (maybe even in 10.14.3) or later due to an internal change by Apple (#65). I'm currently researching on how to fix the issue, but feel free to submit a PR. Checkout our wiki page for places to start your investigation.

What's New | changelog

  • The app is no longer sandboxed. See #63 for more information.
  • Lost focus when theme switches while you are working on something else? That's no longer an issue (except if the app you are using is a menu bar app, Dynamic Dark Mode for example) (#62).
  • For those not using Homebrew Cask, we'll help you move to /Applications folder so Dynamic Dark Mode won't crash on launch (#16 & #49).
  • Feel free to open a new issue to suggest what we should include on our wiki page

Important Announcement

We are planning to un-sandbox Dynamic Dark Mode. Please see the rationale and let us know what you think through the anonymous poll or comment under issue #63. Thanks <3

What's New | changelog

  • You can now disable brightness based dark mode when scheduled dark mode is on, since some of you asked how Dynamic Dark Mode determines what's the best theme for you (#58). This option is disabled by default and you may opt-in through the app preferences yourself.
  • Now you can add dark mode toggle to your touch bar. This feature has been implemented by @CaptainYukinoshitaHachiman a long time ago, but I wasn't able to test it myself and add it to preferences until recently. It is ON by default for discoverability (sorry but not everyone reads release notes) and can be disabled. Since it requires using a private framework (DFRFoundation), please let me know if Dynamic Dark Mode starts to behave strangely.
  • Dynamic Dark Mode will update schedule once your location is updated with the re-connection to Internet, if you are using scheduled dark mode (#55)
  • Shout out to @suschizu for updating homebrew cask :)

  • Some of you might have seen "nil: estimatedNextExecution" show up in your notification center (#59). It should have been fixed now, but in case if it isn't, click on the notification to give us your feedback!
  • Want to localize this app to your language but didn't know how? Now we are using crowdin to make it easier for you to help out, and several languages have updated translations! >>> Help translate to your language
  • Some other app that's not as awesome got more upvotes on Product Hunt? That doesn't sound right at all. >>> Upvote for Dynamic Dark Mode to show your support!

Wonder why I'm releasing this today? Good question. I get to use my mom's colleague's personal computer while he stays in my home. Honestly speaking, I don't want to use my MacBook Pro mid-2012 any more. My laptop is SOOOO SLOW...... I just can't believe what I was using is actually a computer! I really wish to work on some new features before he leave/before WWDC, but I have AP exams in the next two weeks, so we'll see what's gonna happen. Sorry 😐)
