Dark Mode for Mac OS 10.14 Mojave

Postby MakoCore » Tue Jun 19, 2018 9:57 pm

The title says it all! Mac OS Mojave is featuring a "dark mode" for the entire User-Interface. I think version 3.0 of Transmission should include a "dark mode" that is either enabled based on a timed schedule (similar to their background images), or just having the option to enable it. :D

If my understanding is correct, when the app is built using the Mojave developer tools, Dark Mode will be automatically added. It is up to the developer to make sure everything actually looks good though and may require tweaking. Then the app will be dark along with the rest of the system, based on your setting in System Preferences (there is no timed or per-app setting).

Any updates on this being added? Mojave's been out for awhile now.

A first-pass of adding dark mode support has been pushed to our git repository.

It's been 2 months since the last nightly build. Any news?

Good to see dark mode support in the latest nightly build!

I don't know if it helps but my suggestion is that the progress bars in dark mode are too bright. Many macOS elements adjust to a darker version when dark mode is enabled, so maybe Transmission's progress bars should have darker progress bars just for dark mode?

To go a step further, could the progress bars be made more "Mojave-like" - for instance, when copying files in Finder, the progress bar takes on the highlight color you've picked in System Preferences and it's a solid color. Transmission's progress bars still have an aqua or glassy look to them like from older macOS'.
