Community: Dark mode

  • There is an issue:Add a dark mode · Issue #4382 · CollaboraOnline/online · GitHub
  • Why in a branch not master ?
    • We got regressions left & right here.
      • Affecting the non-dark-mode.
      • Plan to add a switcher so it doesn’t do it automatically.
    • Can just merge it – and hide the switcher.
      • Make it visible in CODE.
      • Also trigger info jsdialogs.
  • Michael poking in his spare time at this.
