Dark Mode

Lets your users make the WordPress admin dashboard darker.


If you would like to make WordPress more visually appealing in the dark, please contribute! Styling the entirety of the dashboard is a huge task we need people to help!

Ideally, Dark Mode will one day be a part of the WordPress Core. Until then, we need people to help design, build and test this feature to ensure it's worthy of being included.

Installation & Setup

It's really easy to get started with contributing to the Dark Mode plugin. You'll need to make sure you're using a fairly recent version of Sass - a CSS preprocessor - of at least version 4.0 or above.

Pull down the latest files from the repository and then cd into the plugin directory at /wp-content/plugins/dark-mode. From there, run the following command to start auto compiling your CSS changes.

sass --watch dark-mode.scss:dark-mode.css --style compressed

When you're done, push your changes into a forked version of the repository and submit a pull request on GitHub.
