Really Dark Mode 🌚 - Feature Request

It’s all bright in there.

I bring these votes with me:

Can we possibly get a rename of the other thread “Blue Mode” so my new Dark Mode Idea stands out. Im trying to advocate for a fair few twitter users :sweat_smile:

It’s not going to happen.

This took YEARS and isn’t finished yet. Votes mean nada.

I can wait another year…

You never know. I mean you could be right after all something like this was once in a “Blue” Moon

Dark mode ≠ black, and never has

Optimising your dark themes for OLED is a much simpler process than inventing a new theme though.

Well this just goes to show that Monzo can never win. They implement something and literally within minutes people are on to the next version of the thing they want :man_shrugging:t2: They’ll implement ‘true’ dark mode next and then people will want rainbow mode…

It’s easy enough to ignore requests at least, they’ve got dark mode boxed off just needs to be cosmetically finished. They’ll be more pressing things to do then get the black ink out hopefully.

I wonder if the “really_dark_theme” mentioned here is what people are asking for?

After they launch that, someone will be along asking for unicorn sparkle mode.

I use the middle (“Dim”) of these three options on Twitter and it is pretty much where the Monzo Labs is now:

And I am personally fine with that for now as I find the last option “Lights out” a bit bleak

Maybe the “really dark” mentions will bring something like that

Really dark mode is black, with black text and black icons

A lot of people on twitter tick the dim box.

That reminds me of:

Since then, the DM subsets have been removed, leaving only the current ‘really_dark_theme_enabled’ flag. I wonder which of the older subsets the current one fits into - it seems like it’d be the older ‘Midnight Sky’ rather than the older alternative of ‘Lights out’ - so a future additional choice, or two, of DM darkness could be a possibility?

EDIT: Just checked what flag changes there have been since sunset today, and in true Highlander-fashion, there is only one:

    WAS: <boolean name="themes_enabled" value="false" />
    NOW: <boolean name="themes_enabled" value="true" />

So it looks like there is potential scope for varying levels of dark theme guides. Which may have been scrapped.

tbh, I’m totally happy with the implementation of DM so far. Amazing to see it in-app.

So is this dark mode called really dark theme?

Midnight Sky feels like a much better descriptor and name for this palette honestly. Really dark sounds like what they’d call something darker.

But if you’re spending a year dead for tax reasons, you don’t need to be able to read the text anyway.

Costs a bomb to licence that, I understand. Would have to settle for Black 3.0 instead (hopefully Anish Kapoor doesn’t have Monzo account, but) :sweat_smile:
