This theme also works with the mobile sites (Minerva skin). For more comparisons, see the image gallery.


A userstyle extension is required, common ones include

🎨 Stylus for Firefox, Chrome or Opera.

Then install using one of these methods

📦 Install the usercss with Stylus or xStyle. Supports automatic updates.

Additional Userstyles

⚙️ Overlay-Scrollbars
⚙️ Wikipedia Dark Gray Text Colors
⚙️ Wikipedia Dark IMG Styles

Note: With exception of the Overlay Scrollbars style the Wiki additional styles are NOT to be used on their own without the Wikipedia Dark style also installed ;)


Wikipedia Dark only supports the default wikipedia vector theme.

Support for other themes are graciously accepted via a pull request... If interested please open a new issue to discuss your intentions before proceeding.

  • Many of the table cells have inline styling to add a background colors.
    • Some of the very common stylings have been replaced using attribute selectors ( e.g. th[style*="background:#eee" i] ).
    • But due to the sheer number of possibilities, the replaced css style would also need to include selectors such as th[style*="background-color: #eee" i] and th[style*="background-color:#eee" i], th[bgcolor="eee" i] and th[style*="background-color: #eeeeee" i], etc.
    • It would be a daunting task to find and replace all of these colors. I hope you see my point.
    • If you really want a background color to be fixed, please share a pull request of the fix. We may not always have time to get to it.
  • Not all images can be made readable.
    • This style uses a css filter to invert the images, but this really only works on basic black-and-white images.
