Dark mod e
The interface mode pros were clamouring for proved disappointing
When Apple revealed OS X’s ‘dark mode’ at WWDC, quite a few developers made very happy noises. A built-in alternative OS X theme has been a long time coming, and much requested by people who use pro apps with dark interfaces. The standard OS X theme’s menu bar and Dock can be a distraction from the blacks and dark greys in such software.
The problem is Apple seemingly did the least it could with its implementation. Beyond the menu bar and Dock, only Spotlight seems to be affected. We’d like Apple to go further, replacing ‘Use dark menu bar and Dock’ with a full alternative OS X visual theme.
On changing modes, your desktop background would optionally automatically be switched to something more suitable. More importantly, a much wider range of system components would be affected, including (but not necessarily limited to) windows and dialog boxes. It should also be something developers can hook into when creating apps that utilise standard Apple interface elements, enabling them all to have a dark mode ‘for free’, and on a consistent basis system-wide.
