An optional dark theme for the application.
Everything else in my OS looks amazing on the new Mac dark mode... and then I load Slack and it is so irritatingly bright by comparison. I love slack, just please help it be easier on my eyes :)
This is really a big thing that I'm missing in the client...
guys please, add a dark theme to the #1 chat application ! :)
But my blue light productivity gains!!111
Seriously I have to wonder if the only reason this isn't a feature is to keep melatonin production low in scared office workers.
There's really no good reason, at least.
How can this still not be supported?
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.
Working around this with wee-slack.. Can't belevie it's not a native feature.
Please add a night mode/dark theme to Slack!!!
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!
I need this too, the white brackground makes my eye floater really stand out and it's distracting.
macOS Mojave is out too. Dark it.
@Debjeet Biswas: Hear, hear!
Especially for designers and developers who work on dark theme apps and Text editors and adobe products, Really hurts the eyes. :(
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?
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!
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/
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'
would really love this to happen :D
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.
Have some mercy for our eyes. Thanks in advance
Been asking for this for years. At this point I doubt it'll ever happen.
Would really love this.
This would be a great help. Slack is the only non dark themed application on my computer!

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.
Extremely unpleasant surprise to find out that it is still not supported ...
Please, please, please! A dark theme is a must for eye strain / brightness!
