Latest reviews

  • (2021-12-06) Colin C.: This extension prevents twitch.tv from remembering your theme setting, defaulting to light theme. If you use twitch, don't use this extension.
  • (2021-09-28) Irakli Charkhalashvili: This is better than native dark mode of Github. But needs a small update so that title bar was also black. Everything else is great.
  • (2021-07-16) Looks great. I'd give it 5 stars if it worked on GitHub Enterprise as well.
  • (2021-05-24) Patrick McCarthy (Everseeker): Only 1 small gripe. I use this with Zenhub. 90% of the screens are correctly "Dark", however, the background of the Story view is still white :(
  • (2021-05-19) Matt Newell: Despite finally adding a dark mode after all these years, GitHub still didn't manage to get the colors to look good. I use this extension on top of it anyway because I love the color scheme (and thankfully now when elements break it's not noticeable since the dark theme is still applied underneath!)
  • (2021-05-18) Alex Trofimov: Glad you guys brought this back for GHE. Now that GitHub has native dark mode it's nice that we can replicate that behavior for GHE that aren't upgraded.
  • (2021-04-10) Мой лучший друг: Неработает.
  • (2021-04-07) Ramakrishna Upadhyaya: Love it..
  • (2021-03-18) Aleksandr Ladenko: Спасибо, все было круто!
  • (2021-02-27) Robert-Nick Revnic: This extension is great, except for one bug that is out there for some time: the label with the github_username\repository_name\ has a white background making the text difficult to read.
  • (2021-02-03) 菜菜子MikuNanako: Thank you for developing this nice extension! However GitHub has added the new dark mode feature recently, but I still appreciate your work. Before I remove it, just I think I must leave a 5-star review here, great job!
  • (2021-01-20) Manuel Fittko: This is still a lot better than the original dark theme as it has a nicer contrast, it's just way more comfortable to use than the original dark theme. Sometimes single elements break but I just switched to the dark theme in my github profile so these issues would probably not even be noticed any more :)
  • (2021-01-20) Joao Neto: Just came here in Jan 2021 to say that this theme looks waaaay better than the native dark theme from Github. Will keep on using!
  • (2021-01-20) cesarspg3: En los pull reques en el apartedo de files changed, las líneas de código que no se han cambiado sale el fondo en blanco y es muy molesto, por esto lo he dejado de usar, el resto está muy bien.
  • (2021-01-03) DevEagle: Great! I love using it for GitHub! Although they made a dark mode, I still love the Atom based theme! Definitely recommend!
  • (2020-12-29) Nabil Al Tamash (Nabil): Since GitHub introduced dark theme I am not gonna used it, but when I used it, it saved me! Props to the developers! If you are looking for people to hire, then the developers are obviously your guys!
  • (2020-12-14) Georg Curnutt: I am so very grateful! Where have you been all my GitHub life? How about another for this Chrome Web Store page? Or help me make it a felony to have bright blinding white megapixel web pages. Thank you for this. Sincerely.
  • (2020-12-14) Abhisek Padhi: 🌑Github got it's own dark mode now - https://techcrunch.com/2020/12/08/github-gets-a-dark-mode/ This was good. Helped with lot of long PR reviwes on github at night. 👏Kudos to the developer of this extension. You rock 🙌.
  • (2020-12-10) Ryugo Abe: Thank you so far.
  • (2020-12-03) Layne: i regained my vision
  • (2020-12-03) Laurent: The light gray text on the light gray background unfortunately means this extension is almost unusable for me. Doesn't seem too hard to increase the contrast just a little bit so that it passes accessibility guidelines.
  • (2020-11-21) Brandon Buttars: The regular GitHub Theme was blinding me when I was working in the dark. This was exactly what I was looking for.
  • (2020-11-19) David Awad: This is awesome, thanks!
  • (2020-11-18) Витя Чел: This is so useful, thanks from my eyes
  • (2020-11-15) Jared Baszler: was working late at night in my bed and thought - I wonder how I make GitHub dark. And I find this. Thanks!
  • (2020-11-13) Aubrey Polk: Sick!!
  • (2020-11-09) Ariel Baus: This should be native to Github 10/10
  • (2020-11-08) 了了: protect my eyes
  • (2020-11-03) Edwin Chua: Excellent. Thank you :)
  • (2020-10-26) Demetri Babalis: For years, I have been exploring examples of coding rxamples and techniques via a huge number of coding content creators. I did not even think to setup GitHub with a dark theme. My eyes thank the Poy Chang, the developer.
  • (2020-10-22) Liam Gallagher: This changes GitHub so much it looks amazing, you would think GitHub would have dark mode, I couldn't live without this extension.
  • (2020-10-20) Michael Wilson: Looks great! Well done.

  • (2020-09-18) Antonio Savage: Hey I'm giving this FREE extension that saves your eyes from the blinding white of Github 5 stars. My eyes thank the dev and appreciate the freeness and the fact that they didn't go hog wild with permissions requested. Cheers dev and thanks!

  • (2020-08-11) Harry Henry Gebel: This makes GitHub so much less exhausting!
  • (2020-08-08) Иван Варнавский: Отличное расширение
  • (2020-08-06) Pedro Couto: There are still some things to improve, such as the following. When gitHub.com is not in full screen (split screen). When I access my repository in the original theme beside "Insights" 3 points appear. In this theme, these points do not appear. Thank you and keep up the good work.
  • (2020-08-04) Tyler Resch: Thank you so much for this. My eyes thank you!
  • (2020-08-02) Robin Denis: This is impressive

Latest issues

  • (2021-05-17, v:1.1.25) Tim Holmes: Store Violation
    I am getting this violates Chrome policy last week. Any ideas?
  • (2021-01-20, v:1.1.23) Recent Github update borked some styles when reviewing PRs
    Just noticed it today. If you have this repo in Github, I can help contribute.
  • (2020-12-09, v:1.1.21) Nate Taylor: Thank you
    Loved this extension. Now that the official thing is out, you could probably sunset it. If you do, please PLEASE send out an email to people who used it asking for contributions, I would probably donate as a thank you for this extension tiding me over until the real thing. Thanks a million! 👍
  • (2020-11-19, v:1.1.19) Matt Newell: New Github notifications UI broke coloring
    It is bright white and only dark on hover.
  • (2020-11-18, v:1.1.19) Diego Aguiar: Update extension
    Some places in Github looks bad, for example the notification page. I think this extension needs an update to keep up with Github's changes
  • (2020-11-07, v:1.1.18) Marty Cochrane: Latest Chrome Dev Build Removes Some Formatting
    Hey there! Love your extension! It works amazing and makes GitHub so much nicer to use. :) Wanted to give you the heads up that in the latest Chrome Dev release - Version 88.0.4315.5 (Official Build) dev (64-bit) - that the board view in Projects seems to only half work. Most of the site is correct, but the cards themselves and the info panel is now white. I'm sure this is an issue with Chrome as it only started happening after I updated Chrome, but wanted to give you the heads up in case this is a change coming to the Stable release as well. Thank you!
  • (2020-09-12, v:1.1.12) Andrew Roley: Can't give feedback after uninstall
    "we're sorry to see you go" feedback form has reached the maximum number of entries and won't accept any more.
  • (2020-09-12, v:1.1.12) Andrew Roley: ipynb files still show as white
    I think that's clear enough, but they make me put something here
  • (2020-06-24, v:1.1.4) Anthony Poschen: new github header is terrible
    could you put the top bar back in the container :) https://twitter.com/mickysocaci/status/1275548560633876486/photo/1
  • (2020-06-15, v:1.1.3) Ankita Nallana: Does the theme not work on Enterprise Github?
    We use Enterprise Github here and I just installed this extension. While I can see the Dark Theme on github.com I can't see it on my enterprise github -- github.company-name.com
  • (2020-06-13, v:1.1.2) Filippo Sergenti: dark mode contribution panel
    hey there! thanks for the extension, now github looks awesome! by the way I still find pretty odd-looking the contribution panel. there is too much contrast and the green of the contributions really doesn't merge well with the whole experience, thanks a lot in the first place, hopefully there will be an update! :)
  • (2020-06-05, v:1.0.54) Dave Brennan: Github dark stopped working this morning
    Was working just fine until I restarted Chrome this morning. I reinstalled and tried in Edge Chromium as well but I don't get dark mode anymore. :-(
  • (2020-05-04, v:1.0.52) Pablo Francisco Pérez: Toggle on/off button
    I love this extension, the render changes are great! Something I miss though is a toggle button which would let me easily (with just one click) enable or disable it. So far I am doing this by enabling/disabling the extension but that requires several steps.
  • (2020-05-01, v:1.0.52) Federico Zivolo: Auto switch?
    Could you add an option to automatically switch based on the `prefers-color-scheme` media query?
  • (2020-04-09, v:1.0.49) Sergei Shirokov: Stopped working on GitHub Enterprise Server 2.17.4
    It used to work perfectly but suddenly stopped - now everything again in light mode. I guess there was an update of github.
  • (2020-04-08, v:1.0.48) Cyber SharK: Page doesn't scroll when selecting and dragging down mouse.
    Page doesn't scroll down on selecting text blocks from top to down. It's works for Bottom to top, but not Top to down.
  • (2020-03-22, v:1.0.48) Alex Yumashev: github.community is broken
    Github.com looks great but github.community (the forum) looks ugly now
  • (2020-03-18, v:1.0.46) John Mansell: No Change
    1st, I think this is a great idea. However, I added the extension and nothing is changing. I tried closing and restarting chrome, but all github pages are still unchanged. I've tried clicking on the icon at the top. I've tried removing github.com and then re-adding it as a domain. Nothing seems to get the extension to "turn on". Any help is appreciated. I'm pretty sure its a pebcak issue.
  • (2020-03-11, v:1.0.44) Pontus Kindh: Font color for .yaml files
    Hello, The colors for yaml files are realy hard to read as almost all of it is writen in different shades of green.
  • (2020-02-10, v:1.0.40) Andrew McCorkell: White header issue caused by media query min-width 768px
    Inspecting the header element shows the following style being applied from pagehead.scss @media (min-width: 768px) .page-responsive .pagehead { background-color: #fafbfc!important; } Deactivating this style resolves the white header issue
  • (2020-01-20, v:1.0.37) Jackson Porter: Gist
    This plugin is not applied to gist.github.com, is this going to be supported in the future?
  • (2019-11-16, v:1.0.28) SupinePandora43: Error
    Extension disallow writing comments
  • (2019-07-22, v:1.0.4) Goa Way: New permissions
    So why does extension now need permissions to read and change all your data on the web pages I visit. What changed? Cheers.
  • (2019-07-12, v:0.9.51) Dimitar Nestorov: Option to toggle on/off
    GitHub will change/add some UI elements and it may look unreadable, a toggle option will be awesome for these cases.
  • (2019-04-08, v:0.9.36) John J: does not work on my work github
    I predominantly use a git hub that does not conform to https://*.github.com/* but it would to https://*github.com/* Is there a way to add entries? If not, could you enhance?
  • (2019-02-27, v:0.9.26) Chris: developer.github.com
    Hello, I am experiencing problems with style on https://developer.github.com/ Keep up the good work though ;) Kind regards, Chris Schilders
