Image of DarkModeSwitcher

A small Mac OS App that allow you on Mac OS Mojave to switch between Dark Mode and Light Mode directly from a shortcut or via the status menu bar.

How to download directly the App ?

Just download the App zip file here :

Current Version: 0.1.0

Why this App can be useful ?

In Mojave in order to change the dark mode status you need to open the system preference each time ! Why having a shortcut could not be more easier ?

This is why I build this tiny status bar app.

Getting Started

This is a MacOSX App build with xCode using Swift 4.0 and temporary exceptions in order to handle System Events and Preferences panels events

This App cannot be allowed on the Mac App Store due to the necessary temporary exceptions required.


This project come along side some pod dependency

pod 'OGSwitch'
pod 'LoginServiceKit', :git => ''
pod 'Magnet'


Pod install

And Run the project a small App will appear on top of the screen as per below

Language handled

  • French & English only for now.

In order to change the language you need to change the project main language configuration before generating your App Build.

If you want to contribute to improve it, it will be with pleasure !
