Hi!

There's been some requests recently to get #DarkMode available as a native feature in the Meister Suite.

I want to share a great tip I got from @Eva Schindler to get this functionality when I told her how my eyes hurt after long periods working on MeisterNote's user interface.

The solution pointed by Eva was a web browser extension named Dark Reader, which is available for:

Below I leave you a couple of videos:

  • The first one showing how it works
  • The next one shows how to install it

After enabling this #MeisterHack for myself, I got this upgraded experience:

MeisterTask:

MeisterNote:

MindMeister:

Community:

Eyes don't hurt anymore… Cool, huh?

I hope this helps to those of you with sensitive eyes 😎

Best regards and thanks @Miša for suggesting the creation of this thread 😉

    I glad you liked it @Rooster McNugget and @Jörg Koper, the best thing for me is that it not only works in Meister.

    Everything you open while you have it enabled gets styled for dark mode automatically, I think that's pretty cool! RAM consuming, but cool 😀

    Thanks for the appreciation @Miša. #MeisterHacks is one of my favorite tags on this platform! You have shared several good ones as well ✅

    Cheers

    Hi guys

    I made the experience that Dark Reader didn't fit very well with my screen. So I tried dark mode - night eye for Google Chrome. I think, and this is my personal opinion, the contrast is a little better.

    Or it's just my "old" screen.

    Greets and have a good one!🖖

    Hi Samuel,

    I recommand to take a look at the data protection information of the extension. Just in case, you make use of it in your business environment 😉

    Best, Jörg

    Hi @Jörg Koper and thx for the hint. As I see (as a non professional IT-User) there are the same settings.

    Is Dark Reader checked?

    Hi Samuel,

    Dark Reader is not collecting any data. But, as far as I can see, Dark-Mode-Night does.

    Enjoy the sun, buddy 👋😉
