Use a higher font weight & a darker color for body text #2

merged 1 commit into from

Fixes #1.


I'd even go as far as #555. But that's already a big improvement, my eyes thank you. (if this gets pulled)


+1 on this pull request. While I liked the design, readability of the body was terrible.


+1 — great theme but very difficult to read.

Perhaps increase the base font size to 16px too.


+1 for this pull request.


Though I would put the font weight in the font shorthand since it's already being used.

font: 400 14px/1.5 Lato, "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;



Yes, please incoropriate, it is quite hard to read this theme.
Thankfully, tools such as Readability exist. But ideally I wouldn't need them.

This theme is being used on quite a few sites I visit, and it always gets my attention in a negative sense because it's hard to read!
Also, since it's one of github's default themes, some people are reluctant to change their copy to make it more readable.

Here is what it looks like (approximately) in real life on my monitor (without the moire of course)
