We’ll be introducing a night mode that you can switch to in dim lighting. It may also be useful for people with other accessibility needs* and also just to rest your eyes after a 12-hour stint!
We are proposing using #ddd (off-white) on #222 (dark grey) so that glare is right down but the colours aren’t as harsh on the eye as strictly white on black (#fff on #000) might be. We would welcome any technical input on this combination. Our research has found that it may be better to use an eggshell, or other shade of green, colour in place of white as it takes less photons of green light than red for the eye to register (ie. it produces the most signal at the lowest intensity). We’d love to get your thoughts on this.
*For example astigmatism (which studies have shown around half of adults suffer from) and dyslexia
