Dark Theme for Atlas

There was similar post about Docs, but my issue is with the Atlas UI itself.

The all-white background really burns developers eyes even with decent light in the room.

Dark Theme should be a default setting in Atlas or at least an option.

So far I’ve used the Dark Reader extension on my Firefox browser, but I have to toggle it ON/OFF sometimes when I click something in Atlas or if some UI element loads without being affected by the extension and becomes bright white.

I know it’s stereotypical, but I believe any development / programming related site or app should have Dark Theme by default because most developers prefer dark themes over the bright light themes.

Thank you for taking time to provide valuable feedback! I am excited to inform you that we launched a dark theme for Atlas in public preview today. :new_moon_with_face::sparkles:

A Few Things to Keep in Mind

  • Since we are releasing this in Public Preview, there might be some minor visual bugs. The goal of Public Preview releases is to generate interest and gather feedback from early adopters. It is not necessarily feature-complete and does not typically include consulting, SLAs, or technical support obligations.
  • Dark mode is not currently available for Charts, Documentation, University, or Cloud Manager.
  • We have conducted comprehensive internal testing, and we did not find anything that prevents users from using Atlas.
