      Dark when I was younger. Light now I'm older and have ruined my eyesight from looking at dark themes sitting in a dark room.

      Light theme in a well-lit room.
      Dark mode is a crutch to make it tolerable to program in the dark, but that's a terrible habit for many reasons. It's only suitable for interfaces that you might need to briefly use in the dark without wrecking your night vision, like an alarm clock app.

      p.s. turn your fricking lights on, you shouldnt ever be in a poorly lit room letting the screens glow illuminate you. that's worse than anything and dark themers in particular do it.

      But programming a dark room makes me feel like le edgy hackerman!!

        >An intriguing study published in Nature Research’s Scientific Reports in 2018 suggests that sustained exposure to light-mode may be associated with myopia. Myopia (or nearsightedness) refers to the inability to see far objects clearly and is strongly correlated with the level of education and with reading. In their study, Andrea Aleman and her colleagues at the University of Tübingen in Germany asked 7 human participants to read text presented in dark mode and light mode for an hour each. To see if their predisposition to myopia changed after reading, they measured the thickness of the choroid, a vascular membrane behind the retina. The thinning of the choroid is associated with myopia.

        >The researchers found significant thinning of this membrane when participants read text presented in light mode and significant thickening when reading text presented in dark mode. The thinning was more pronounced in participants who already had myopia.

        >This result seems to suggest that, even though performance in light mode may be better in the short term, there may be a long-term cost associated with it.

      I use light themes that have a color profile most like my current environment, so that I can look away form the screen and not have to have my eyes adjust in any way. If my lights are off I lower the brightness of my screen, but I also don't want to frick up my sleep cycle so if its dark I'm asleep or the lights are on

    Dark themes actually cause your pupils to dilate to adjust for the lower amount of light and actually causes strain too. Screens aren't good for your eyes in general.

        This is a fair point and thinking about it I agree. But I also think it doesn't justify the light themes. What's the sweet middle-spot??? According to what I know, the middle-spot should be leaning on the darker themes, so not exactly in the middle. I suppose.

    i prefer light mode, and I also hate theming your OS so that everything looks the same and it takes half a second to realize what window has focus because you've themed everything with gruvbox colors or something. Would find it extremely annoying trying to use some riced out OS to do actual work.

    • 3 weeks ago

      my setup is "riced" but it's been the same for 10 years. ricing isn't necessarily bad but constantly tweaking it is. that's why i like dwm - it's a bit tedious to "rice", having to recompile after you've made changes. patches seemed annoying enough to apply that i never bothered. most of the dwm patches are stupid anyway so no big loss.

      Light theme or dark for programming?

      light mode for programs that require intentive focus like my editor. dark mode for casual things like my browser and note taking program.

      https://www.nngroup.com/articles/dark-mode/
      > Cosima Piepenbrock and her colleagues at the Institut für Experimentelle Psychologie in Düsseldorf, Germany studied two groups of adults...
      >...
      >Their results showed that light mode won across all dimensions: irrespective of age, the positive contrast polarity was better for both visual-acuity tasks and for proofreading tasks. However, the difference between light mode and dark mode in the visual-acuity task was smaller for older adults than for younger adults — meaning that, although light mode was better for older adults, too, they did not benefit from it as much as younger adults, at least in the visual-acuity task.
      >...
      >Another study, published in the journal Human Factors by the same research group, looked at how text size interacts with contrast polarity in a proofreading task. It found that the positive-polarity advantage increased linearly as the font size was decreased: namely, the smaller the font, the better it is for users to see the text in light mode. Interestingly, even though their performance was better in the light mode, participants in the study did not report any difference in their perception of text readability (e.g., their ability to focus on text) in light versus dark mode — which only reinforces the first rule of usability: don’t listen to users.

      basically when you need to be focusing on something, "comfort" is not the most important thing.
