Dark Theme

An Eccentric Anomaly: Ed Davies's Blog

I've added a rudimentary dark colour scheme to this site for those who prefer the screen to be mostly dark.

Choice of colour scheme is partly a matter of preference, of course, but it's also, to some extent, an accessibility issue. With my eyes I find reading dark themes for very long quite tiring but I understand that others have similar problems with light backgrounds.

With a light theme selected for your desktop a post I made the other day should follow the scheme this site has had for quite a while:

On the other hand, with a dark desktop it should change in minor ways to the following which I hope will be somewhat less unpalatable to those who avoid light:

It's all done in one @media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) stanza at the end of my main.css file. If this doesn't work for you (but other sites do follow your shade preferences) or if you notice anywhere this messes up I'd be glad if you could let me know.
