A method to switch from your default website colour scheme to a darker one.
Hit the 'mode' button above to see it in action.
The concept behind dark mode is a reduction of light emitted by screens on your devices while ensuring the minimum colour contrast ratios are required to make the content easily readable.
Dark mode does not mean that black and white have to be used. The best options are a combination made up from off black and / or dark colours with off white and / or light colours.
At the end of the day it is your website so you can choose whatever colour options you prefer.

Dark Mode Website Example

A light mode was added meaning it will switch from dark to light as opposed from light to dark.
