yarmo.eu now has a light theme. Though it's not my preference, it was brought to my attention that wise, dark theme is generally more disadvantageous to people with eye conditions than light theme.

Next up: implementing a light/dark theme switcher without using JS or cookies 😉


@yarmo good choice. I wrote a post recently about some research I did on dark vs light mode. It’s interesting stuff.


@kev @yarmo Your post Kev made me do a whole load of googling, and I switched to light mode on loads of stuff.

My site is already light, but everything else (gtk, terminal, websites that support it, phone etc) was dark.

I honestly never realised how much dark mode was straining my eyes.

The hardest switch was terminal stuff, but I'm used to it now and life is good.
