dark-mode UI for LinuxAcademy

I often am doing courses late at night (when I usually have free time).  The current UI has tons of white space, and I get why that is -- so that text can be easily read while looking at notes below the video sectino you are watching.  

For me personally I wish there was a feature where I could toggle on a dark-mode UI for Linux Academy so I could spare my eyes late at night, but during the day still enjoy the classic UI and be able to read notes below the video section.

    Strongly agreed!  Dark mode is a requirement for work  (control room), as well as a very important accessibility consideration for those with astigmatism, floaters, or shift workers who need to keep their circadian rhythm in check.

     

    I would strongly encourage Linux Academy to implement dark-mode. It's would be somewhat simple for them to do, just a new (toggle) CSS for the pages.

     

    In the meantime, I will gladly support them with a personal membership; but until dark mode is implemented, I am unable to recommend them for my office as a team/enterprise membership.

     

    Once that's fixed, it's off to the races. :)

    Using 'Dark Reader' extension in Firefox is a workaround for now.

    Many people's eyes would be very thankful for implementing this. My eyes still hurt from finishing a course yesterday evening, LA is just too addictive ;)

    This is always a request which doesn't get much attention because it's just aesthetics, but I actually think pluralsight looks better because of that, and it really is indeed a commen request in any application, to have a "dark" mode or theme. Would like to see it being implemented.

    Adding *Themes* would be awesome

    There is another firefox extension named dark mode ultimate: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dark-mode-ultimate/ . No one should use chrome anyways in my opinion because it drains your laptops battery and spies on you all the time. So firefox should be the browser of choice for everyone in their right mind

    Using Dark Reader extension for Firefox (not sure if available for Chrome, etc.).  Works great!  But, adding themes to the user preferences is also nice.

    It would be very interesting when it would also be possible to do this in the video's itself. I can imagine that it's not easy when a gui is show in the video's, but with presentations and CLI, i guess it's possible to invert the colors?
