Night Shift Control
Night Shift Control is a simple macOS menubar app for controlling Night Shift. It's aim is to bring features from f.lux which are missing from Night Shift such as disabling Night Shift for certain apps.
- Disable Night Shift for apps of your choice
- Easily turn on/off Night Shift from the menubar
- Control Night Shift warmth from the menubar
- Shows the current Night Shift status and color temperature info (press ⌥ while clicking the menu bar item to see)

How to install
This app is not officially singed so you will need to disable Gatekeeper temporarily to install it. You can disable Gatekeeper using the following command:
sudo spctl --master-disable
Then unzip the zip file and simply drag to the Applications folder.
N.B: It's' highly recommended that you enable Gatekeeper after you run the above command, by going to System Preferences -> Security and Privacy -> General
Make it start at login
If you find Night Shift Control useful and want it launched every time you login. You can add it to login items by going to System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Login Items -> click the '+' button and find Night Shift Control.
How to build
This app depends on a private framework located at
/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreBrightness.framework. I was not able to successfully build this project by adding this framework from it's original path. What worked is copying
CoreBrightness.framework to a folder I owned i.e under your the User directory, and adding that folder in Project Properties -> Build Settings -> Framework Search Paths.
