Highjacking top comment to point out that official Dark Mode is coming very soon!

With everything you have already done for the site...and now you add extra. Many thanks :)

Wrote a quick Dark Mode CSS, with hover effects and fixed some spacing issues.

Firefox plus dark reader add on. Works on mobile and desktop. Works on many other websites with no effort and when it does not work you can ehitelist that site.

Grady_Wilson (4 points)

Just added it to FF. Works fantastic. Thanks!!

PSA: On desktop, please use "Stylus" instead of the "Stylish" extension.

Stylus is a fork of Stylish that removed the shady tracking and made the interface much better to use, as well as use less resources to accomplish the same goal.

Thanks, pede!

katsumi27 (5 points)

Any for iOS?

qmqz (8 points)

Unfortunately it's desktop-specific. We'll have to wait for the site devs to finish everything and hopefully make an app soon that also supports dark mode.

Stylish only works on computers IIRC.

Thank you for the dark mode style, works very well.

FYI, don't use Imgur, they spy on users.

GPan900 (13 points)

It's dark for me and looks nice when I use the Dark Reader extension/add-on. I have it on Chrome and Firefox.

Is there a good way to go from a post to the main page without reloading? Kinda like clicking outside the post in r/the_Donald.

Magafactured (5 points)

Dark Reader is the shit. On Mac, it’s available for both Chrome and Safari, and it has a preference to follow system dark mode, which is brilliant (or not-brilliant, if you will).

However, I still do all my reading/posting here from iOS, so +1 for the dark mode toggle option for the site.

MAGAlikethis (5 points)

I third the Dark Reader add-on. Looks fantastic here.

I also liked the preview option for images so you can expand the image or video without having to click the link. I'm not complaining, just suggesting. I look forward to the day when thedonald.win surpasses Reddit's total viewership.

Shadowman3001 (6 points)

Also on the list!

I don't know about videos, but it works for images. It's not obvious.

There is a grey triangle, balanced on one corner.

However, that's only for original posts. I don't see it on comments.

gorillachannel (1 point)

I think it's called cardview.

f_bastiat (8 points)

Well this blows the white supremacists narrative out of the water, id even go as far to say dark mode is superior and we shouldn't even have a white background option.

Phone app <3

Shadowman3001 (12 points)

We haven't even touched the world of an app yet, and that's a big undertaking. In the meantime, the mobile site acts very app-like. Our front-end guy did an amazing job on it!

paloooz (3 points)

Can you add the appropriate meta tags so when I add this to my iPhone home screen is has a proper icon? Would also give an icon when added to favorites in iPhone safari.

draintheswamp (1 point) *

He forgot the "apple-touch-icon.png" Super easy to fix (drop one file in the root directory, and it makes the home screen bookmark look like an app. https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/AppleApplications/Reference/SafariWebContent/ConfiguringWebApplications/ConfiguringWebApplications.html

Doubt there'll be a dedicated phone app, given Google and Apple "curate" their app stores. they'd ban it the moment it shows up.

Slop (1 point)

Phone app, new phone, new OS, etc. Can we just start our own based tech company where we value freedom and American values?

Magafactured (1 point)

Yes – iPhone app, please👍

Everyone probably already knows, but I’ll say it in case they don’t, that in iOS you can make a specific icon on your home screen from any site.

When you’re on the site, just hit share, then “put icon on home screen.“

Touching the icon will directly open the site up in Safari.

Sumwat (3 points)

Also on mobile we make it so clicking a thumbnail expands the image inline instead of opening the post?

MichaelHall1 (3 points)

My eyes! The dark mode extension I use in Firefox (Dark Night Mode) only works on the comments here, not the main page.

gorillachannel (3 points)

Get Dark Reader

MichaelHall1 (2 points)

Yeah, I used it previously for a long time, and I've reinstalled it now. Works fine here, but it's slow on some websites.

gorillachannel (1 point)

Wow, you’re not kidding. Especially Facebook.

Also how do I post images on this board? I have memes

Shadowman3001 (8 points)

I'd love a "remove formatting" option too. Makes pede'ing at work hard when there's a giant trump banner lol

We need a The Donald is Fun app.

If we're rolling back the worst of Reddit's design decisions, we should be showing upvotes and downvotes per post again, rather then the amount of points.

Saving battery lives one device at a time. I wholeheartedly agree but am very happy for this 'cracker', having been starved of food for so long, by Chicom Reddit.

Eddie Murphy bit from his stand up routine talking about how good even the most basic food is after suffering starvation (paraphrased)

"Is this a saltine? No this is a Ritz! So delicious! Thank you!"

Magafactured (4 points)

So hilarious – I remember that.

“What is this!? A saltine?!” (Nibble, nibble)

lmao

Barbieblonde (2 points)

Colleague of mine showed it to me on Youtube when he got this little tiny bonus for the first time after not getting them for years due to management decisions. He said he felt the same way and I laughed at that and how Eddie was showing that feeling perfectly, albeit while sweating to death in a full leather suit. Watched all the clips of that show and he really was the best comedian of his time.

I'm using it right now. I even use it during the day. It seems fine to me--and I don't even typically use dark mode. It's available in the settings gear. Thanks dev team, ya'll are great!

gorillachannel (1 point)

And card view for the post listing. I don't want to open every thread to read it. This is significantly slowing down my upvoting.

I'm really happy this stuck to the old style rather than the stupid new style where a single submission takes up the whole bloody page and everyone is treated like they're blind.

I love the BLK backround. But it isn't something I feel you need to do. Easier on the eyes.

There are other quality of life features that are also needed. Tagging for posts is necessary, and an upvote downvote counter would increase transparency.

Yes, and CARD mode to see the memes; and a close button instead of clicking back to ensure a screen refresh for new posts.

We need a dark mode and an app for shitposting from the toilet!

Kiwi browser on Android allows you to make any page dark mode

RodRamhard (1 point)

That AND an app that runs like Bacon Reader but can have a bit of flair like desktop. We smart phone patriots need a seamless way to jump into this world.

Vindicated2020 (1 point)

I disagree. Just focus on making the forum good and making content.

People are asking for apps, dark mode, etc... none of that is important. You want a nice clean forum to interact with others on and share info. If you do that well, that's all that matters. Youtube took like 10 years to come out with dark mode, Mac also took 10 years... you want dark mode in the first week of this websites existence?

strykrpinoy (1 point)

yas! dark mode would be great!

MAGAWookie (1 point) *

It would be great to have a "no theme mode" too. I love the design but I have to be super careful none of my cuck coworkers see this on my pc.

I recommend the extension called 'Dark Reader' if you want dark mode now. A bonus is it works on all websites. It's one of my must have extensions.

Magafactured (1 point)

Same. And I just discovered that it has a preference to follow system dark mode settings, at least on the Mac.

marsajane1949 (2 points)

Yeah, man it's a well written ext. Love how easy it is when the rare occasion you can't read the words on the page, you can select the option for that page only and adjust the brightness and contrast quickly.

Magafactured (1 point)

FYI, Devs are tweaking the CSS for dark mode right now. I can’t contribute because I’m on mobile, but the post is stickied. https://thedonald.win/p/10f0N9/night-mode-test-feedback-needed/

Proper mobile apps would be great, too.

The mobile webpage is alright, but not as good as an app. Case in point, it still does silly mobile browser things like zooming in on the text entry field when you start typing. Really irritating.

malthrax (1 point)

Do you REALLY think Apple and Google will allow an app on their app stores that points to this obviously white-supermacist, patriarchical, misogynistic, islamohomophobic fascist web site?

DO YOU??

Archangel (1 point)

Yes, we need a dark mode and a "simple" mode that removes all of the flashy graphics and pictures.

Addons work great at home, but can't use them at work.

Dark Mode is already in the CSS for thedonald.win.

To enable (in Chrome):

  1. F12
  2. In developer console at ">" prompt, type enableDarkMode(), then Return.
