An optional dark theme for the application.
Please, please, please! A dark theme is a must for eye strain / brightness!
Extremely unpleasant surprise to find out that it is still not supported ...
That would be absolutely simple to add, just add a few more fields for the Sidenav Theme thing to allow configuring the rest of the app's colors. Eye strain is really bad, please.

This would be a great help. Slack is the only non dark themed application on my computer!
Would really love this.
Been asking for this for years. At this point I doubt it'll ever happen.
Have some mercy for our eyes. Thanks in advance
As one of the late night on call monkies, being blinded by Slack in the small hours of the morning is usually the icing on the, already pretty crappy, cake. Please make life a little easier for us.
would really love this to happen :D
We can already do this with wonky hacks that get wiped out every Slack update. Please give us the option to do this natively, or at least change the background from '#BlindingWhite' to just "#white'
With the release of MacOS Mojave (and its support for "Dark Mode"), this functionality should be easier (and less application-specific) to implement: https://www.apple.com/macos/mojave-preview/
If you use the browser version of Slack, you can do this very easily with this chrome plugin: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dark-reader/eimadpbcbfnmbkopoojfekhnkhdbieeh?hl=en-US
Of course I use the Windows app and Android app mainly, so... WE REALLY NEED THIS FEATURE!
How is this still not a thing? Really annoying to reapply the hacks to make your own dark theme each time slack updates. This needs to be a top priority - how many more votes does this need?
Especially for designers and developers who work on dark theme apps and Text editors and adobe products, Really hurts the eyes. :(
macOS Mojave is out too. Dark it.
@Debjeet Biswas: Hear, hear!
I need this too, the white brackground makes my eye floater really stand out and it's distracting.
Just got another Slack update, so lost my dark theme again. PLEASE IMPLEMENT THIS ASAP. It's crazy that there is no night mode / dark theme still!
Please add a night mode/dark theme to Slack!!!
Working around this with wee-slack.. Can't belevie it's not a native feature.
Are they "saving" this up for release notes to pad out a thin release sometime? Can't think why changing colour scheme isn't low hanging fruit.
