require('cypress-dark/src/halloween')

Install Dark theme

Add to your cypress/support/index.js line

require('cypress-dark')

By default dark theme will be loaded. If you want to switch to another theme, set its name in your cypress.json file.

{
  "theme": "dark"
}

If the theme name is unknown (look at CSS files in src folder), or unspecified, default dark theme will be used.

Themes

For now all themes are shipped with this package and can use CSS variables. Available thems are:

Dark page under test

You can "tell" the web application under test to switch to the dark mode using media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) if the application uses JavaScript media query to check for preferred scheme. See original issue #29 and cypress/fixtures/custom-dark.html page.

To enable stubbing window.matchMedia from your tests and "force" your app to switch to dark mode, set option in cypress.json

{
  "darkMediaQuery": true
}

Result - both the test runner and the application are running in dark mode.
