Please consider supporting varying levels of contrast. The current dark mode theme has way too much contrast and is challenging to use. I realize that this may not be the case for everyone and I think it’s going to be tough to find a goldilocks solutions that works for everyone so perhaps adding several themes in varying levels of contrast is the right solution here.
Thanks for sharing the feedback @nek4life! As you mentioned, we knew with just one dark mode theme we were never going to offer one “goldilocks” solution that met everyone’s preferences. But we already working on designs for additional themes that either make GitHub more inclusive (high contrast, colorblind, solarized, light sensitivity) or give the community more options that match their preferences. We plan on adding these new themes to our public roadmap soon so stay tuned!
