ttrss – Light and dark theme

Hello,
with todays post I hope to sort out some confusion about the setting named “Use dark background for article text”.
In german: Nutze dunklen Hintergrund für Artikeltext
In italian: Usa lo sfondo nero per gli articoli
In russian: Использовать тёмный фон для статей

Some people seem to think that this setting changes the overall style of the app, but it doesn’t. The app uses the setting of windows 10. On desktop/tablet you should have the light theme enabled by default (dark theme can only be set through registry hacks at the moment). On Mobile you can switch between light and dark theme.
However there is one place whithin the app that doesn’t use those predefined colors – the article body.
This is basic html rendered by the edge browser. And per default this uses black text on white background.
For those using the dark theme this just looks stupid (IMHO). So I created the setting to use white text on black background – and that’s all the setting does. Just compare the two screenshots below.

For the light theme it doesn’t make much sense to enable the setting, but you can do of course if you like to.

Have a nice day.

Stefan
