We have gone full circle with dark mode. At the dawn of personal computing, dark mode wasn't a matter of choice, but a matter of fact. Monochrome CRT monitors, after all, came with with black screens and displayed text in green. Fortunately, those times are gone. Working with and supporting dark mode is now fun and opens up new design avenues. For some of your visitors, it could mean the difference between not being able to handle your site and being a happy user. There are some pitfalls and careful testing is still required, but dark mode is definitely a great opportunity to show that you care about all of your users. Learn more. ›

We were happy to report that with our Zapier integration, you can do exactly that. We also thought this might be interesting to others, so we decided to write a general how-to guide. Roll up your sleeves and follow along! Check it out! ›
