CSS Dark Mode

November 07, 2018


You won't be able to use this just yet as it's only available in the Safari Tech Preview, but a media query for "Dark Mode" will soon be available. Combining the media query with custom variables makes for some pretty easy theming options.

body {
  background-color: var(--background-colour);
  color: var(--text-colour);

@media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) {
  :root {
    --background-colour: #111;
    --text-colour: #eee;
