I’ve been using Codecademy for a couple of months now and it’s been a great experience so far!
However, there is one thing that could improve my experience by a great deal and that would be a dark mode.
I’ve got quite a lot of “floaters” (mouches volantes) in my eyes and they are making it hard for me to read text that has a very bright background. In some exercises, both the “Learn” and the “localhost” window show up on the screen and both are very, very bright and therefore hard to read for me. Apart from a browser plugin (which does a so-so job) I have found no way to change that.
So it would be fantastic if you could implement maybe a little switch next to the avatar or maybe even somewhere in the settings that changes the background- and text-color to something more easy on the eyes, I think that might help a lot of people, not just me.
I second this suggestion! I’m in my 40s, and I experience eye strain and fatigue after so much close reading on a bright white background. Not everyone who’s learning to code is in the prime of their lives. A dark mode would really help me spend more time on Codecademy taking lessons. Today I had to stop after only 1 hour because my eyes were starting to get really dry and become strained.
I too would love a Dark Mode that allows the answers to run correctly.
Apologies for resurrecting the thread, but for some reason my forums have reverted to light mode, and the option for a dark mode theme doesn’t seem to exist anymore? Was this removed or is it because my Pro ran out or something like that?
Nothing to do with your subscription. The theme that included dark mode was built by a member of the community. That theme is no longer available to members of the forums. I can’t really elaborate on why that is. Perhaps @fede_hq or @mariana-hq could weigh in?
Appreciate the reply! Is a real shame it’s gone as it was nice and I really do struggle with light mode websites. I believe my browser has a built in dark mode that works okay, I can try enable that and see how it goes.
