Dark version of Documentation, please...

    I don't work in the dark Unity, but I do code in a dark theme. As do, I think, a very good portion of others.

    Is it difficult to make a dark version of the HTML/Online docs so it's not jarring to jump back and forth between docs and coding?

    Or is there some other reason it's only in a white and bright, OMO-like theme?

    Not forums. Documentation.

    This: https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/index.html

    and this: https://docs.unity3d.com/ScriptReference/index.html

    ------------

    I'm using Dash for the Reference part, to get that in a dark theme, but it doesn't seem to be able to download the latest version of the Script Reference, only 2017.3, and definitely not the beta 2018.1 or 2018.2 I'd like.

    But, all that aside, I'd still like to ask why there isn't a dark theme for the HTML versions of these, both online, and as offline content within the Unity install.

    Yeah, I meant modifying the forum styles. They might share a few things which makes it easy.

    I don't think any dark theme either for the forums or the doc will ever happen. I gave up on that and I use DarkReader; it's an extension for the most popular browsers. :)

    Hi all! I'm Siobhan, I work on the documentation team. Wow, this is an old thread.

    A dark version of the docs is on our radar, but we're in the process of updating a very (very) old back-end, which is the priority for now. Rest assured, it's on our wishlist as much as it is on yours!
